I've posted this before and was told to expand on it, but can't seem to figure
out how to do it, so I'll waste some server space and "expand" here.

I teach face to face and online at a junior college.  I had a student who was
talking to his computer do do assignments in the classroom, before class, and
using the onboard laptop mic using Vista's voice recognition. 

Since I do so much online work, I am having problems with my hands, and had
purchased a Vista machine to be able to interact with the j/c, which has gone
completely to Office 2007. Prior to that I was completely Linux, using OO.  Due
to that change I had to use the Vista machine and so tried the voice recognition
on it.
For those who may not know: "Aero Glass" which was pooh poohed as "vapourware"
has "slid in under the radar" in the file structure of Vista and the Office
suite.  The voice recognition is a seamless operation, which takes about FIVE
MINUTES to train on the machine.  I talk the response to an assignment, say:
FILE, then "SHOW NUMBERS" and semitransparent, shiney, color coordinated, Aero
Glass buttons appear on all the file commands with a unique number.  I say the
number of say "save as" it asks for confirmation, I than say the number for say
"rtf" it asks for confirmation, then the number for "save", again confirmation,
and it is done, end of story, no crash no foul.

I would really like respectfully suggest that the "voice recogniton", if there
is one, be moved forward on the agenda.

And while I'm at it, Microsith is now pushing "Surface" a "coffee table
computer" which was originally a LINUX application.  I produced and advertised,
with money, Calypso Dancer, which I hoped might be a way to galvanize the
community on "touch" stuff also...if anyone wants to give a go at that, feel
free, we/I have done all we can with it, and it is free to the community.

Thanks for your consideration on what I consider to be a relatively important
