Sorry for the slow reply. I'm not visually impaired, apart from having to use
spectacles, but am interested in text to speech applications, and also speech
to text, which appears to be somewhat more difficult. I looked at Dragon
naturally speaking yesterday, but you have to pay for it, and there are no
trial versions. Of course it's pretty much Windows only, so you'd have to use
it with Wine on Linux, if it does actually work ok with Wine.
Are you on the LAU list? I know at least one person there who is blind, and
produces some music, and has just put out 3 tunes that he's recently done.
He's also helpfull to folks who are sight impaired, and working with audio
apps on the command line.
The link to subscribe to the LAU list is below, and the guys name, if you want
to look back in the archives is Julien Claassen.
Links to Julien's latest tunes are below.
