Users comments
The user also has VoiceXpress, a speech recognition program, see www.voxit.se, last checked March 2017. He does not use it because he does not have a wireless headset that works; therefore he cannot leave the workplace without help. He does not use speech recognition since the existing system works well enough.

You can download other virtual keybords, for example ‘OnScreenKeys’, see www.tomweber-software.com/products/onscreenkeys/ (last checked Febr. 2017)

www.voxit.se is now selling wireless microphones for VoiceXpress (last checked March 2017). The user has not yet tested it.

Another possibility is to use a desktop microphone, for example Logitech Desktop Microphone which has an USB-connection, see also www.logitech.com/en-us (last checked Feb 2011).
