Windows "Surprise surprise. Windows Vista speech recognition actually works. Contrary to what MSNBC criticize as a ‘wreck', the speech recognition technology is well developed and highly usable, says Long Zheng.

Microsoft speech recognition is available for free download, with SDK.

I was programming in Delphi under Windows Me at the time, it worked well for speech command. I remember having a small merlin on top left of my screen, wiating for commands like "switch delphi" to bring up Delphi when it was not on top.

The only matter for me was that it was English only (even if I could have free french speech synthetisys)

Since then... Nothing happened. I am pretty sure the speech recognition engine is still the same. I have been waiting for that for years.

Now, I have a graphic tablet with shortcuts. Definitely the best HID device I ever had.
