"What in the world does speech recognition have to do with your widgets, let alone with Mozilla?"

Most speech recognition software packages for Windows use a global hook that generates key stroke messages and sends them to the active Window. This makes it so their software will work in any text contorll, in any software, anywhere in the OS. This may or may not effect Mozilla, because it all depens on how Mozilla handles incoming Windows messages and I'm not fimilar enough with the source to know. However if Mozilla does not corectly handle the messages generated by this type of software there will certainly be alot of people that reject it.
