This is a bit of a repost because someone forwarded part of my query from the accessibility list to 
this list.

I'm using LO writer because it works with naturally speaking with full select and say capability

Frequently I find myself needing to record notes or job task entries or something of that nature 
and given that my hands are not in wonderful shape, it is really painful to do all the mousing, 
switching context then positioning the cursor to start recording a note. I really need to just say 
something like "log task entry" and have it start up in the log fileĀ  according to some internal 
logic defined in my speech command

What I say to invoke the editor isn't really important. It usually calculate the filename based on 
the context such as time of day, and task . What's important is that I find a way to achieve the 
following behavior:

1. There is at most one instance of file open in the editor at a time

2. If there is no instances of the file open, open one

3. When switching window context to the open editor window for a given file, position the cursor at 
the end of the file

4. Autosave dictated data so that no need for recovery is necessary when we started the other after 

what I'm having the most trouble with is maintaining a single instance of the open file. I don't 
know how to tell if LO is openĀ  or if it can tell if it has already opened the the file and simply 
switch to it for focus.

The second problem is the autosave without needing to do a recovery. What I would like is the 
ability to trigger a save command automatically whenever LO loses focus or a timeout happens.

Any pointers?
