    Post Voice Recognition

    Anyone know of any good VR software? One that is programmable to OS fuctions, like opening/closing apps? I had this old PI 150mhz IBM Aptiva from 6 or so years ago that had a great one. I'm sure it would work great if I can find it in the restore CD I have. Anyone know the name of it?? I can't remember. If I can't find it, I was just curious if anyone knew of a lite VR prog? Thanks.

    Cool

    Dragon Dictate is a good one. If you can program, you can use the MS Speech SDK and build your own. However, due to the noise levels in the car, speec recognition doesn't work that well and can be very frustrating to use.

    I knew I'd open up a can of worms with VR in the car. All I have to say is that; I've done it before, and with a high level of accuracy. My only problem is choosing SW.

    Dragon Dictate, Game Commander and ViaVoice are all possibilities.

    I've already tried Game Commander in my car and it left a lot to be desired.

    I think ViaVoice might have been the prog that came with that old aptiva. Could it be? Have the been around for a while? 6+ years?

    Well, IBM does make ViaVoice and it has been around for awhile... not sure about 6 years though.
