I agree. I think it is best to solve the hardest problem first. Once there is
a good, free as in freedom, speech recognizer, people can build applications
around it.

I would also argue that the notion of "economic freedom" as introduced in this
discussion is fundamentally misconceived and that it obscures important
distinctions. Economic injustice is an important problem, a daily reality for
a significant proportion of the global human population; but it happens not to
be the problem that the GNU Project and the FSF exist to solve.
