The authors present an analysis of the effects of different learning modes including spoken and written on the performance of the users and interaction between the users and the natural language dialogue system. The use of a longitudinal study to provide an understanding of the effects of the modal and mode transfers on the performance of the users from the strength of the article. The practical use of written vs. spoken modes also provides strength to the article. The article is important for the study as it provides indulgence into the means in which different modes and modal transfers affect enterprise architecture.
