[libreoffice-accessibility] Re: [libreoffice-users] Re: Sphinx - voice translation - Linux


Hi :)
For people following the "Voice Recognition" threads i thought you might
find this post interesting.  If it's true then it explains a lot =
especially about how this area seems to have gone backwards over the last
20 or so years instead of forwards.

I wonder if anything could be done about it?  Surely they are breaking
"equality" legislation in many countries.  I think that is too much of any
of us to take on and i'm sure people have already tried but it might be
worth someone exploring someday.
Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

Is there any FREE ones that work well for Windows?

No.
The entire field is wrapped up in mathematical algorithms that have been
illegally granted patents.

  That is what the speech recognition really us needed.

All of that was available, before Nuance decided that they would help
those with a11y requirements by ensuring that R&D was stopped, and
working products were pulled from the market place.

Indeed, the achievement that Nuance is proudest of, is that those with
a11y needs no longer have the tools that would help them.
