I have always wanted to talk to my computer. Well, let me take that back – I talk to my computer all the time. I have probably called it every four-letter word in the book. It does not understand what I am saying though. It is just a dumb box of PC parts. If you want to turn that all around, give Responding Heads a shot.

This program got me on its name alone. I love it. Here are a few more details about it from the author:

“Responding Heads enables you to launch programs, commands, and actions via voice commands spoken into your PC microphone. The program uses the MS Speech recognition engine and is very easy to configure. It places a small animated head on your desktop that confirms that spoken commands and adds some animation to the process (this can be turned off).”

Responding Heads supports program launching (saying ‘Open Mail’ runs your mail application) as well as several system and keyboard commands, text-to-speech conversion, and even typing of pre-configured keystrokes.

Now while it is not perfect, it is pretty darn cool for being a totally free application. It is free and easy to set up, so why not try talking to your own little responding head?
