If this thing is already well trained on English,
needing not much more than reading maybe ten
pages or so worth of a training book that it already
knows and that comes with the docs, to get it 90+%
tuned to a specific voice... it could be very useful for
people needing handsfree dictation, thought capture,
transcription, voice message conversion, etc.

What other tools are out there in freeware to do
speech to text?

Did Google ever release its voicemail convertor?
People have said that service sucks due to nature
of needing to be trained for all callers, not to just one.

Doubt any of them would be able to pull out whispers
without it being trained on whispers for which there isn't
much public corpus, and further tuned by a specific
whisperer which is even rarer.
