Voce Dictation

Many people who use Linux are spending 10+ hours in front of their 
computers each day. Because of this, many of us have typing-related hand 
damage. While I don't expect to be able to use the command line with 
voice, I should be able to write email and use a mouse-grid.

Ubuntu _needs_ voice dictation software. We have not even started down 
the LONG ROAD to having free voice software. We have a couple of 
speech-to-text engines, but we don't have a good large vocabulary to 
work with. This Wiki page talks about getting the collection of this 
vocabulary started, but NOTHING has happened.


As you point out, we need voice tools if we are going to get into 
mainstream corporate and government desktops. If we are are going to be 
an alternative to MS Vista in these markets, speech-to-text is MORE 
IMPORTANT then 3d desktops.

I  totally agree!
What do tou think?

Thanks Angelo
