    Hi,

    Now that touch screens work, is it possible that Microsoft design
    applications which respond to voice rather than using the mouse? Imagine
    Windows and Office Suite responding to oral commands !

    There are already many programs available which provide voice
    recognition and conversion into typing, cursor and mouse pointer
    movement. My own close second hand experience is with Dragon Naturally
    Speaking, which my wife uses. It's not as simple as you hope it would
    be.

    As for widespread voice input, life in cubicles is already pretty
    horrible having to ignore coworkers phone conversations. Voice input
    would be a quantum level worse. Definitely functionality for home
    offices only!

    Since voice command and dictation has been around for YEARS, and was
    even part of Office 2003 perhaps you could share what TOUCH screen have
    to do with AUDIO input?!?!?!?
