Online Speech Recognition for Dictation

I’m working on the integration of kiku (voice recognition to control your OS) to Vinux (Linux for the visually impaired). For now the feedback about kiku is great, but one thing people wants is a solution for dictation (that is, speech to text). kiku could be use for that task, but sadly there is no good (accurate) acoustic model available under GPL (Voxforge is a good start, but not there yet – please contribute).

So i came up with this online speech recognition for dictation solution to overcome this limitation. Speak in different languages, spell check, translate and text to speech all in one place. You’ll need Google Chrome and a microphone.

EDIT: it seems that it is not working anymore… is an alternative:

    Love your project. It is pragmatic in speeding up workflow and of course increases accessibility to users with visual or physical disabilities. If I understand current and near future products in the tech world; voice command is becoming increasingly common. Watch for SDK’s that may increase your OS base and save you from re-inventing the wheel.
    I know you need cash and you deserve it. I’m living from hand to mouth these days so the real point of my post is to say Thank-you!
    Without coders, artists and educators working together; Blender would be dead.
    Thanks again,
