A web search for voice recognition linux will turn up many links.

Jon Kulp has a couple of podcasts at Hacker Public Radio about blather, which he uses so he can give voice commands to his computer. You may find them helpful.

There is a trade off currently with speech recognition: vocabulary increases the amount of training the program requires. Small vocabulary = less training. Larger vocabulary = more training.

I have not found anything for Linux that I could say is "good".
