friend of mine runs a quick/short-term discussion space. It's real simple, brute force but it may be a good enough for the hybrid contingent to have a brief discussion about approaches to developing pragmatic disabled user software. once we get going, as a variety of options for e-mail lists such as the one listed below (voice coder)

there is another list for people interested in speech user interfaces. This list is the voice coder list at Yahoo groups. The people there include developers of vocola, unimacro, and dragonfly.


The philosophy of the members of the list are focused on helping speech recognition dependent users first. The software they release is almost universally GPL with an IDGAF on the backend for the recognition engine.

There are good people there. They have a different philosophy than I do on speech user interfaces but, the main reason I haven't proven my out yet is because VR-mode Emacs is broken and I don't have any way of generating code. and, because they have different approaches, I listened very carefully to what they say. Like I said, good people.

The effort could use some hands to approach code generation and editing a different way than they currently do. We need to reduce complexity in the same time as increasing functionality. Within the next five days I'll be posting there a design note on how to generate a data sniffer for a shell environment so that you can learn about the local context and use it to build more commands. the goal being to generate a speakable change directory command.

I'm looking forward to your feedback.

for what it's worth, I may be invisible for a day or two because I need to reinstall Windows 7 and NaturallySpeaking. It's a pain but it is a semiannual event that I've signed up for because the compromise I've had to make.
