In the future, voice services which convert voice to text and vice
versa will become more common. If the voice can be recognized then
identity can be established.

Spy programs now exist that can determine who is typing by the pattern
and cadence of their keying. Two versions; one which listens to the
sound in the room and the other which is internal to the computer and
records the arrival of keystrokes electronically. The one which
listens only to the sound in the room can be trained to distinguished
which keys are being typed. Blind people can learn this skill as
well, much as a deaf person can learn lip-reading.
