Coding with your voice

A new tool has been revealed called VoiceCode that allows programmers to code using their voice.  It seems like a great way of coding.  The tool was created to help prevent RSI which affects 22% of coders.

At the moment, it looks like it is only available for Python, however it can be adapted to other languages.  It's different from normal speech recognition tools because it recognises operators and keywords, like "less than" which would be coded as < in the IDE. 

In the article below it says that it takes a day to install and configure!!!  They surely need to prioritise on getting the installation time down otherwise people will lose patience and press the cancel button on the install - I know I would!

I wonder if they have any plans to allow .NET code to be spoken into Visual Studio....
