Macs, Linux, codes and speech recognition?
I know my logic is way off on this, because I know nothing about computer programming. But I remember reading that the Mac runs on a UNIX-basedor Linux-based code. I also know that Nuance has released a version of Dragon for the Mac, albeit an unfinished one. Currently, users of speech recognition can't use Linux or UNIX because Dragon can't support the code or vice versa. If there is now a version of the program for a Mac, does that mean that potentially (depending on Nuance, of course) a version of Dragon could be written eventually for Linux/UNIX? (Assuming, of course, that the Mac does run on that code.) Interestingly, I can run Open Office 2.4's Writer with Dragon -- dictation is excellent and I can use the commands as long as I say the keyboard shortcuts instead of the natural language. Would there be some progress at some point, do you think? I know a lot of this depends on the developer, but I was just curious if there is any link to the Mac and Linux/UNIX.
