I've wondered about this (back when my wrist was bad enough to keep me off
the computer at home--and cause trouble eating)... is there a language that
does support speech recognition? How does it work? At the time, I was

an interesting challenge creating a translator from haskell to
"human-speakable haskell"... and of course back again.
