Do you know any good voice control software?

I'm looking for good, inexpensive voice control software for the PC. Nothing as fancy as Dragon Naturally Speaking. I just want my voice to fire keyboard commands.

There used to be a great program out there called Game Commander that could do exactly this. You gave it an application name (say, MS Word), and then you trained it to listen to your voice when you said "New" and it would fire the keystroke to create a new document. Sadly, I can't get Game Commander to work on Vista.

Since you're using Vista, Speech Recognition is built in.

Response by poster: Oh I've tried. It simply doesn't work very well for me.

I'm not sure if it works on Vista or would be better than the built-in speech recognition, but GlovePIE supports voice commands.
