Speech recognition!

Perhaps partly OT here, but does anyone know of good (and pref. free) speech
recognition software, that can output a text string that could be read and
acted upon by a Perl script? For that matter, can Perl be made TSR so that
it sits and "listens" for input, such as text from a speech recog software?

Search the CPAN for "speech". There are a few hits.

TSR (terminate and stay resident) appears to be a DOS technique to hold
programs in memory. Perl is a programming language, TSR doesn't apply.

If the question is whether a Perl program can be made TSR, I don't know.
You can certainly keep a Perl program running in the background, waiting
for input from some other program. See "perldoc perlipc" for that.

It never ceases to amaze me the diversity of modules you get on there.. I
was thinking I would probably (finally) have to attempt to learn C to do my
latest project, but it seems Perl may well be able to handle all the tasks I
will need to give it!

Ouch.. that looks complicated.. but thanks :)

Seeking recommendations for effective and preferably free speech recognition software with the capability to output text strings that can be interpreted by a Perl script. Additionally, exploring the feasibility of making Perl operate as a TSR (Terminate and Stay Resident) to actively listen for input, including text from speech recognition software. Any insights or suggestions on these aspects would be greatly appreciated.
