Yes I think that because biometrics is so new in this area of security, particularly within the banking industry, there are a lot of questions like that that still need to be answered in regards to specific solutions and testing different solutions.

To add to the earlier comments, there also seems to be varying representation
as to what different solutions actually accomplish. Is this an
application of voice biometrics or speech recognition? With the use of a passphrase ("My voice is my password."), it is difficult to tell whether the technology is verifying "who is speaking" or "what is being said." If it's a question of convenience, perhaps answering that is less critical than it would be if the technology were applied for security and anti-fraud purposes.

Interesting to note. While voice biometrics is still in the early stages, I think in ten years' time it will have got to the point where it's replaced passwords as a primary security feature.

Event though people are getting password fatigue, we're still going to need passwords for some time. Voice biometrics still needs to improve from what I understand before it is 100% reliable. If you're in a noisy environment, or have a cold or something that affects your voice, the technology might not recognize you trying to log in to your account.
