Simon - Speech Recognition - Any plans?

Good morning

First of all I want to thank you for your work on packaging a11y software for 
Debian. It's always nice to say that Debian is one of the only if not the only 
OS that's installable via speech or braille output. Thanks so much for it!

Then a question or propably hint. There is one piece (yes, Simon [2] as you 
saw on the subject) of speech recognition and thus as well a11y software that 
I always had an eye on and there was actually once even an ITP [1] for it.

In the beginning there were problems with the licenses of some of the 
dependencies but meanwhile this should be solved. But the ITP became an RFP 
and so the work slowed down. And the main developer of Simon decided to 
concentrate on developing rather the packaging and he probably will even work 
on dication [3]...

So I wanted to ask you if there are any plans to work on packages for Simon in 

Thx for everything
