My late father was just shy of deaf for his last few years, and it was a great burden for the whole family. I spent some time trying to find some sort of speech-recognition software (preferably Free) which would allow us to talk to him and let him read our words on a display.
It's obviously a hard problem. Decent speech-recognition is geared to one speaker, typically someone dictating to a machine rather than carrying on a conversation. I couldn't find anything which could recognize multiple speakers, even when they spoke one at a time.
Has anything happened in the recent years to improve the situation?
