I was contacted by a gentleman in Cedar Rapids who is needing assistance
setting up voice recognition software on his new Dell computer. I suggested
contacting a local computer service, Kirkwood, or a nearby high school, but
then I thought maybe you might have someone could help. Are any of your
members interested in assisting someone in this situation?

The client is using Dragon Naturally Speaking voice recognition software. He is not aable to operate a mouse or keyboard, so all commands must be made with voice recognition. He can now write MS Word documents, get on the internet and send email and paly computer games. It does not appear possible to do voice recognition training or turn off the computer using only voice commands.
