Pardon my ignorance. I never thought things out this way and as an
outsider had no indication of this happening.

Speech recognition has indeed been making inroads into medical 
transcription. There is an increasing tendency among doctors these days
to 
use speech recognition software to convert speech into text and then
have 
that text corrected by medical transcriptionists. Despite this being
more 
cumbersome than direct transcription, they are being paid considerably
less 
for this job. The fact that so-called able-bodied people also work as 
medical transcriptionists has had no impact on doctors wanting to use
speech 
recognition and thereby cut down their transcription costs.

Justin Philips, one of the AI members, has been directly affected by
this 
trend and may have further information.

There isn't any connection with the two. Doctors in the US need
well-drafted reports for their clients which they can't draft by
themselves. Speech recognition has an impact in situations where a
person cannot use their hands to work on the keyboard. I have also heard
of folks trying to build applications where a person's voice can be used
as a unique identification in tele banking and similar kinds of IVT
based services. Tht apart, I have not heard or read speech recognition
impacting medical transcription (remember: MT is also done by able
bodied folks).
