Speech activated scripting/macroing for Windows

    For a time, a Dr. Rick Mohr worked on a Vocola project that allowed
    continuous command recognition through Dragon NaturallySpeaking in
    Windows. Currently Vocola is available for Windows Vista and higher,
    but no longer available for use through DNS.

    More recently, Christo Butcher has begun a Python project called
    "Dragonfly" that works with NaturallySpeaking through NatLink (a
    crucial part of the continuous command recognition process that might
    be in need of further development).

    http://dragonfly.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/dragonfly/

    Apparently Dragonfly is the only current programming method to allow
    continuous command recognition (aka "command sequences") spoken to a
    computer through Naturally Speaking.

    This is hot stuff IMO. Currently, speech recognition is a pain to use,
    but it is improving (enough for Microsoft to include SR in Windows for
    "casual users"). In fact, command recognition is much easier than
    dictation because the vocabulary is extremely limited compared to a
    human vocabulary. Continuous command recognition represents the advent
    of natural communication with a computer. It allows defining words and
    then using those words on the fly (ad lib), very similar to a human
    language.

    If you have any interest in voice-activated scripting/macroing for
    Windows, please take a look at Christo's Dragonfly project.

    Thanks.

    After getting it to work, at first, it seems excellent for continuous
    command recognition (with speech activated scripting) in Windows. Yes!
