I think that another feature that Windows 7 speech recognition has is the great number of applications that started to appear to add to its commands. I am currently using WSR Macros and Voice Finger , a software that add commands to click anywhere on the screen, even with a single command. (Basically, it is a turbo version of mouse grid.)
