Speech Dasher

Some of you may be familiar with Dasher, an alternative to keyboard entry. It's being used by people with disabilities and those without - some as assistive technology, others on their phones or for other purposes. Today I want to make people aware of their beta Speech Dasher , which is Dasher along with the use of gaze  to enter text verbally and make corrections with Dasher.  Here's a video:

The idea of Dasher is intriguing, and although I've tried it in the past, without an accessible mouse it was never useful for me. Now I might be able to use it. The addition of voice is certainly a plus.

Dasher and Speech Dasher can be downloaded here for free.
