    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    This is very much a work-in-progress. There aren't any open source tools as mature as proprietary solutions such as Dragon Naturally Speaking, et al. One of the more promising implementations is voximp, available here: voximp - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Thanks a lot Rubberman I'll check these tools. Hopefully It will help Carlo wood.Since Open source community _does_ need people like him.

    No doubt about that! Good luck, and let us know what you come up with. I also have family and friends who could benefit from this. Currently they are stuck pretty much in the MS world.

    A good bluetooth headset (no wires) is a good start. I got a Plantronics one from buy.com which works really well for me for skype, voice recording, etc. Also, there are some extended-range USB bluetooth transceivers that are good. I have a Belkin one which all of my Linux distributions seem to support, plus it has a lot longer range than the one built into my laptop. That one (built-in) drops out at the periphery of my house, whereas the Belkin one doesn't. The standard ones have a range of 50-60 feet. The extended range ones have a range of up to 300 feet. The main downside to most bluetooth headsets is that they are not stereo (only go into one ear), but the Plantronics one can be worn all day without discomfort, plus the good ones have very nice noise-cancellation features.
