    Phillips Free Speech Browser

    SpeechWorks Voice Browser
    http://www.speechworks.com

    Best speech browers around are the IBM HomePage Reader which you can download a thirty day trial for

    and the one which SpeechWorks produced but no longer do unfortunately.

    A lot of blind users are still using the SpeechWorks Browser because it is so good so I recommend it if you can get a copy.

    Some do, with HomePage Reader for example you can do voice recognition in conjunction with IBM ViaVoice. Unfortunately most browsers are voice output only.

    If you can use VB 6 it wouldn't be to hard to develop a talking and interactive browser using MS Agent technology.

    Since MS Agent technology handles all of the text to speach and speach recognition jiggery pokery + character animation and all you need to know is the agent API.
