Voice input in emacs

My work on voice input in emacs is based on the code I picked up from vr-mode.

There are several parts to this; some of them are shared with pedal input to emacs.

Versor maps various forms of navigation (expressions, words, phrases, functions, etc) onto the cursor keys, using the cursor keys themselves, with modifiers, to navigate around the space of navigation spaces. It also works well with voice, allowing the dimension to be assigned by speaking its name.
Flexible choose
This is like completing-read, but divides the list into a tree structure, with a convenient number of choices at each level. They can then be reached quickly by cursor keys (or pedals) or by speaking the number of the choice at that level. You can also say a word or words occurring in one or more of the choices, and have the choices filtered to those containing the words spoken. When the list is narrowed down to one ``choice'' (i.e. no choice at all!) that is taken as selected; this way, choices can be made without having to speak punctuation characters.
In embedded-command mode, you dictate, in continuous speech, into an Emacs buffer which spots commands and executes them as you dictate them. When doing this, you can mix commands and text be entered -- the words forming the command phrases are removed as they are used. Embedded command mode is a minor mode, so that it can be used with other Emacs modes.
