Windows Speech Recognition Macros Technical Preview

SpeechrecogIt looks like Microsoft might be trying to pump up the volume a bit on Vista’s speech recognition, even though news of this seems to be under the radar so far. They’ve recently released a technical preview of Windows Speech Recognition Macros, a package designed to extend Vista’s speech capabilities by allowing users to create their own macros. Lifehacker has an article on this along with a number of videos of this in action.

I’m wondering if this might give a boost to the often forgotten capability of speech recognition on Tablet PCs.
