Speech to text software, also known as voice recognition software, coverts speech to text.  Speech to text software makes it easier for anyone to use a computer, but is especially useful for individuals with fine motor impairments, individuals with paraplegia, and for individuals without keyboarding skills.  You talk and control the computer - edit documents and emails, launch applications, open files, control the cursor, etc.

Voice Finger
  • Some speech recognition software assumes the user can type and click if needed.  Voice Finger allows a user to do everything by voice, allowing complete control of the mouse and the keyboard with the user's voice.  It may also be used by gamers, acting as a third hand.
