Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i have a debian squeeze platform and i want it to do voice recognition so that i can open and close applications by talking to the computer. i also want to be able to use speech to text so i can talk to the computer and have it automatically type it into a word document, comment box, or searchbar automatically depending on what i am telling it
i know that there are many projects on this but i have been unable to find an application that works well for me, i recently tried perl voicebox but to no avail when i ran the command it just gave me an error (i can't recreate it and copy the text because i have already uninstalled it). so i just decided to move on but based on your experience what is the easiest and most simple application that you have gotten to work and was easy to install.
i have already read the wikipedia page and have looked into almost all of the free ones but to no avail. vedics worked for some time but when i tried to install it on my laptop and started it through command line i get a bunch of errors that i have no idea what they meant
alright i just installed vedics on my debian laptop and tried to start it through command line once again and got this error in the terminal
Traceback (most recent call last):

so your saying that i should update python since the latest version came out recently and the version of python that was pre-installed on the debian dvd isn't the newest nor do i think that the latest version of python is on the repo server. i'll give it a try
orca is a text reader not a voice recognition program so thats not what i am looking for
isn't orca the program with the killer whale and pen as the icon because if it is then thats not what i am looking for. why do all the google searches and some forum responses bring up text reading software.
i just discovered something called sphinx2 on the debian software repositories, it says it's a tool kit so i was guessing that there may be something that was added to the applications menu but i see nothing. do i have to manually add something to the applications menu (i had to do that with google chrome for some reason) or do i need to install another program that can interact with sphinx
