I want to incorporate voice tagging into my workflow. Is anyone doing that now? Anyone have experience with SpeechTags software? There's tagcow.com that uses humans to tag for $.01 - $.02 a photo but all I really need is simple application of speech recognition. Ideally it would be integrated into Lightroom (maybe it is and I don't know about it). All I want is to be able to sit in a chair or on the couch and flip from photo to photo and say simple things like  "John, Sally, Wedding, Cake, Mess ..." and have the files tagged. Windows has Speech Recognition built into Vista and Windows 7 but it looks to be too generalized. I watched the SpeechTags demo and it looks to do what I want. Anyone have experience with it. Other solutions? This seems like an obvious oversight if DAM vendors don't have this. Thanks...

JJ (name?)
I have not seen anything I like for voice tagging.  I think one problem with this is that you would need to have a good interface for selection of non-contiguous files (tag images 1-6, 13, 16, 22-29 as "bride").  This is fast and easy by keyboard (especially for Expression Media, which has a really nice way to do this), but not easy by voice yet.

Thanks Peter,
I think voice tagging may be more applicable to the casual photographer. I can envision it becoming commonplace to be able to tag by voice during family slideshows. I may give speechtags a try. I'll let you know how it goes if you have't already looked at it.
