We have just posted a very cool video showing off some of the work we have been doing with Voice Recognition.
At Renaissance, we try to allocate time for our developers to explore new tools and technologies that are not necessarily related to their current projects. This speech application is the result of one such project developed by Kim Major (http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/kim).
The video (http://www.renaissance.co.il/VSSpeech.aspx) offers a glimpse of our thinking and early implementation of extending Microsoft Visual Studio to allow programmers to write code in C# or VB.NET using mostly speech recognition. We believe that this unique approach could be a real boon for handicapped programmers, temporary suffers of RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury), or programmers who just want to program while lying on the beach.
This is a work in progress and we would very much like to hear your comments and feedback either over here or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
