No, I don't want to be around a bunch of people talking to their cameras.

What about Siri, Alexa, Amazon Echo and Google assistant? Also, don't modern cars also have voice commands?

I read that about 1 in 4 americans have a device they talk to in their homes already, why whould this be any different with cameras?

Voice recognition and commands can certainly be useful in some use cases. However, they certainly aren't a viable complete replacements for mechanical controls or touchscreens for all tasks. Office workers still generally use a keyboard even if voice recognition and touchscreens are available. People still steer cars with physical controls rather with than a touchscreen or by telling the car to turn left or brake.

(I do realise that there may be a bit of tongue in cheek involved)
