Voice Recognition


hi

Could anyone here recommend a good Voice Recognition system that can execute commands or type text while I speak.

Thanks
Ian

I searced Sourceforge, and came up with little. Google, unfortunately didn't help me either. All I ever found was cVoiceControl, and id wouldn't work.

Thanks,
Ian

Emacs has a project with voice, but I don't know if it is speach or voice recognition.
I do have some experience with blrtty a braille-terminal program for blind people, they do speach support aswell, you could check if they have got around to doing voice-recognition.
brltty homepage : http://dave.mielke.cc/brltty/

Hope this helps you in the right direction.

Unfortunately BRLTTY didn't have what I needed, and emacs just isn't my thing.

I didn't follow up on the project, but I know
that IBM used to have a voicetype SDK
for Linux on their Linux-Developers-Package
CD ... along with Domino, DB2, Websphere
and other stuff.

Maybe you want to browse http://www.software.ibm.com?

Cheers,
Tink

I have heard of the IBM ViaVoice for Linux software(supposedly a free download) none of the links to the project work, and searching the site gives no results, I can only assume they dropped it.

Thanks
Ian

Bummer :(

VoiceType for OS/2 was way cool :}

I did presentations with it on sales fairs
for IBM, and the learning abilities even
in such a noisy environment were VERY
impressive :}


Cheers,
Tink
