Vista's Speech Recognition

mikemuch writes "Jason Cross at ExtremeTech spends a couple days talking to his PC via Windows Vista's new speech recognition feature and reports back on the experience. The technology is available even on the lowly Home Basic edition of Vista. It's made great strides, with cool things like the ability to learn grammar through your usage and to pinpoint any place on the screen you want to mouse click. Typo-free text dictation is still elusive, but for desktop control it works nicely."
