  1. Hello, I have recently found while rummaging through my harddrive, microsoft's speech recognition program, i trained it to my voice but I don't know what else i can do with it. Does anybody know what it is for, or to be more precise... Could anybody please tell me what it is for.

    Mostly intened for dictations, letters and such.
    It can also do command interface ie; spoken computer control such as
    OPEN EXPLORER will open internet explorer including voice commanding your surfing.
    Learnout huaspie is the main engine behind it.
    Dragon dictate is another good one.
    Beware these are not optimal programs yet, otherwise everyone
    would be stuck in a Star Trek episode.. :dead:
