Default Speech to text application

Hi,

Our Learning Center specialist has requested a speech to text application to
help with students who have learning disabilities, so I'm looking for a speech
to text application to install and use on our thin clients, or on a stand
alone Edubuntu work station. I see applications for text to speech, such as
espeak and festival, but really nothing for speech to text.

Suggestions or ideas please.

Thanks,

John

Default Speech to text application

Voice recognition is not yet a fully mature technology. The best
commercial software - and the only one I've heard about that can
sometimes be tamed by average users - is Dragon Naturally Speaking. But
that's a Windows product.
There are two opensource linux-based projects on the go (Julius and
Sphinx) but they're apparently nowhere near ready for prime time.
Good luck (and let us know if you find anything new),
David Clinton
