voice recognition

I use voice recognition software to dictate a lot. Sometimes i get phonecalls in the middle and the microphone is still on and the software keeps (mis)recording.

A conversation with my mother about my dying family dog:

    anyone familiar with the state of voice recognition software?

    more particularly, suppose you put a couple of omni-directional mics at a
    table at a coffee shop. can voice recognition now recognize words spoken by
    people who have not trained the voice recognition system?

    would be nice for a dbcinema installation piece, ie, one or more projectors
    reacting to a conversation.

    nice. yes, related. in this public situation, was there much accuracy
    possible in its recognitions? i don't need it to recognize everything. or
    even much. but i do need it to be fairly accurate in what it does recognize.
    i don't need 100%. but people have to be able to see that their conversation
    and the images are related. the stronger the relation, the better. so the
    system just needs to be able to accurately recognize, say, one word every
    few seconds and throw out the words it's not real sure about. would be nice
    to have quite a large vocab. at least a couple of thousand words. sound
    doable within what is currently possible in a public space? i'm thinking it
    is possible. people won't have microphone headsets. same sort of situation
    as in your piece. only the recognitions will be fed into

    you used open source linux voice recognition software?

    how was the reaction to the piece?
