Hello, I am looking for a hand held device that does real-time "talker independent" speech recognition (speech to text). Here are the characteristics that I need. (1) external mic (lapel mic) with short wire. (2) continuous recognition (can run for several hours without touching device) (3) environment - talking to people face to face where a glance at the device shows what they are saying. Neither the iPhone nor Droid (Google) setups satisfy these needs. Does anyone know of a system that does? Or is anyone competent enough to reprogram the Droid so that it does satisfy these needs? (I am a long time researcher in speech recognition but I am old(!) and really no longer want to get into the nitty gritty of Java or Objective-C programming).
