Dictation/speech recognition

It would be nice to set up some basic voice assistant, at least for very simple things.
It's a shame I can't do simple things with voice when I'm not at the keyboard or my hands are busy:

that should be my first priority in implementing dictation
could have start/stop commands and just record everything in between

I'm using a somewhat messy workaround. I have installed KDEConnect, and use my smartphone as an input device. This allows me to use Androids dictation feature and works reasonably well
To everyone reading: you can help improve voice recognition in (open source) applications by donating your voice to Mozilla's Common Voice project.

[B] using voice to code dictationprogramming


Comedian Dan Nainan has stopped typing and opted instead for voice recognition software Dragon Dictate on his smartphone and computer. He speaks into the phone or microphone and the software transcribes his words.
“It’s freaking unbelievable, and it makes me so much more productive. I’m using it constantly, both at my desk and when I’m walking around. I have the new version for the phone that lets me dictate anywhere—waiting for a plane, backstage, or even walking in Manhattan,” he says. While working at Intel, Nainan had repetitive stress injuries in his wrists, so the technology has been a “godsend,” he says. While he says “training” the software to recognize your own speech patterns and accent isn’t necessary, the platform is more efficient when you take the time to do so, he says.

TODO just take a look at kaldi? dictation

Generally Kaldi is much more accurate than current CMUSphinx, however, if your audio has background noise, both will be quite useless. Music on background significantly affects speech recognition performance.

Voice Attack: failed to pick up my American accent. Failed to pick up my friend's British accent. Have not been able to try it as it appears to be incapable or recognizing even the shortest words ("Hello" spoken out loudly became "Oh no")

(G)AVPI: I created a profile successfully, open it, and am greeted with the message "No recognizer of the required ID found". The program fails to work at all.

Dragon Naturally Speaking 13 Premium: Amazing voice recognition, these guys did solid work. However, the Premium version does not allow for your own macros, only text. Only the pro version does this, which is $599. Sadly, I could not find a free version of the Pro version through my regular channels. The premium version of this product does not work with Elite Dangerous.

That leaves me out of ideas. Has anyone else found voice recognition software that actually works, and does not cost a fortune?
