I have used speech quite a bit over the years for various GUIs I've dev'd. In almost every case, in the design phase, when suggested, I get resistance because It's just not part of the usual paradigm. And even though the cost is barely, if at all, affected, people see speech as bloat even though it's built into windows and is accessible by COM and the popular frameworks. For straight up, heads-down data entry, I have found it to be very valuable though I don't have any hard stats to support that. I have gotten positive feedback from those who do use it. I'm not talking about the built in accessibility options in the OS, but a more customized experience using the speech engine. I'm just curious if anybody else reading this has used speech or why they wouldn't. Thanks!
