Thank you for your attention.

Let me explain my situation please. I am a former Hewlett-Packard computer tech and an A+ certified professional so I know my way around a computer pretty good. I have always used the Windows operating systems but I would like to experiment with the Ubunto Linux distribution that I received from them

Now here is the problem. I now have Secondary Progressive MS and I am unable to use a standard keyboard because of my extreme tremors. With the Windows system I am able to use two programs for voice recognition, Realize Voice to control the computer with just my headset and microphone, and for typing I use Dragon Naturally Speaking 8. But I don't see any way to use voice recognition in Linux. Is there a log file or configuration file that I could complete in the Windows environment with all of the configuration settings included so I wouldn't have to type the information during the installation? And also is there a keyboard program that I would just have to use my pointer to choose the right lettering during regular functions in the Linux system?

I would appreciate any assistance that you could give me about this situation.

Thank you for your time.

There's a list of both Free and Comercial Speech recognition software at Link.

I don't know how well any of it would suit your needs, but it could be a good starting point.
