> Is there any software available which can can convert speech to text?

I use tts, the reverse of what you want, so I found this very interesting and 
briefly searched the web. I located a lot of dead projects, mostly dating from 
the late 1990s, however, 2 projects appear to stand out:

CMU Sphinx (Carnegie Melon University Sphinx) - no rpms available, just 
tarballs and I don't know how usable it is

Simon (a future kde accessability application that appears to be seeing some 
progress) - no rpms available, but some indication that it might already be 
somewhat usable

I didn't check, but I don't think there is any ASR (automatic speech 
recognition -- this appears to be the term usually used to describe this type 
of software) or speech-to-text software in the Fedora/rpmfusion repositories.
