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.

I've been using the voice regonition in OS/2 for years. My voice profile is quite large, and I get a VERY good recognition rate (above 90%, typically higher). I admit, I do have years invested into my speech profile, but I have carried it over each time so I do not need to start fresh. The profile I'd say has about 10 years of patterns to go on. I also have my custom assignments in it, like "send" and things that were mentioned above.

I would like to see a more fluid system instead of the boxyness when dictating, but I have grown accustomed to it after all these years. While I don't find it a neccessity, I do like the option of input methods. I don't see voice input as a waste at all.
