Sphinx: Open Source Speech Recognition
Have you been frustrated with speech recognition software in the past? I've used the top proprietary products, such as IBM's ViaVoice and Nuance's Dragon Naturally Speaking in the past. I've found limited good uses for them, but they're not entirely accurate, and they're reasonably expensive. Carnegie-Mellon University developed a free offering called Sphinx, which may be a good alternative for many people, and it's now offered under a BSD license.
