Speech Recognition Engines
These are the programs implementing the actual speech recognition:
Interfaces for Emacs
There are several packages for driving Emacs through voice input, including:
Allows use of DragonDictate from an X window system. http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/a2x-voice/a2x-faq.html
A voice-controlled keyboard for GNU/Linux built on sphinx. http://sourceforge.net/projects/voicekey/
VoiceCode is an Emacs interface to Dragon NaturallySpeaking (uses Natlink). http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/voicecode/
Emacs interface to Dragon NaturallySpeaking. http://emacs-vr-mode.sourceforge.net/
- It seems that vr does only work with Emacs on W32. Is there any equivalent using Dragon Naturally Speaking in a virtual network? I know something like this existed.
ShortTalk and EmacsListen
EmacsListen is an implemention of ShortTalk. It is based on vr-mode.
- It is very important to have a very good noise-canceling microphone. One source I have come across is the compatibility list of (the NON-FREE) dragon naturally speaking software – go for the few that meet their highest rating (six stars).
