Thanks for the link.  I downloaded Sphinx 3 and went through the 
tutorial at <http://www.speech.cs.cmu.edu/sphinx/tutorial.html>.  I know 
nothing about speech recognition, so I blindly followed the tutorial 
steps.  I got a 58% sentence error rate.

I ran sphinx3-simple.  It was able to recognize some of what I said, but 
mostly got it wrong.

I am completely lost.  What should I do next?  What should I run to 
convert what I say to text that I can feed to vi?  I am drowning in all 
the jargon in the web site.
