yes it can be. As someone dependent on NaturallySpeaking, I can tell
you that most of the native limits speech recognition solutions do not

a functional equivalent.
For those on the list using or contemplating Linux, this was interesting.
No one really addressed software only written for Windows - e.g.
Dragon Naturally Speaking.
There doesn't seem to be a good open source or Linux-based voice
That can be a deal breaker.
Then there is the issue of supporting it, fixing bugs, adding
features, working with the community current open-source funding
techniques just don't measure up to the financial needs of critical
projects like this would be.
So how is it, I am using NaturallySpeaking to dictate on the next?
Well the wine solution is pretty fragile and doesn't work with the
latest NaturallySpeaking. It still has problems with using community
supported extensions such as natlink and vocola.
Instead, I'm using a different solution which is running
NaturallySpeaking in a Windows virtual machine and using a tool I
developed called speech bridge (See github) to link speech recognition
functionality in Windows to whatever the hell Linux is doing.
It's moving slow, I am changing things as I need them. I'm getting to
the point where I could use some assistance but I'm going to hold off
asking until I have a good specification/Definition.
