Linux We're infatuated with Siri on our iPhones, and wish something similar existed for Linux. Turns out, it does exist. Almost. An interesting article by a guy who seems to know a lot about the Xvoice project, and an invitation to get involved. The best open source adventures start like this.

Voice control is overrated

Voice control is overrated and it only adds a layer of high complexity because one is too lazy to type with a keyboard. The only real use voice control has is for special needs users, nothing more.

Voice control can be useful also when it's safer - like in a car.

But yeah, overrated in general... (I saw once on Youtube a 2.5-3 decades old IBM promotional video, of dictation software on one of the earliest PCs; not much came out of its enthusiasm)
