Speech to Text Plugin
« on: February 27, 2009, 09:54:49 PM »
I have an idea of introducing a speech to text plugin.

To elaborate more: one would be able to speak into :-* HE some code or text!

PS: Perhaps this concept is not new (I saw somewhere Naturally Speaking advertisements) and MS Office I think comes with this feature too, but it is nice.

Hi Arthur,

from my knowledge, there are no normaly working speech to text plugin.. One can use Microsoft Speech API, but it can recognize only some words and makes more mistakes then correct recognition. Also only limited to Engilsh.

And this is also not really useful feature for some programmers oriented editor. Just imagine how you would dictate variables names :))

But generally idea is not bad, maybe some when when MS enging would be better we can check this. Another idea that I have already thought is mouse gestures recognition...

The mouse gesture recognition feature is just an awesome, fantastic proposition to have!
