   Description     : Open source speech recognition

  With simon you can control your computer with your voice. You can
  open programs, URLs, type configurable text snippets, simulate
  shortcuts, control the mouse and keyboard and much more.
  simon is not bound to any language and works with any dialect.
  This project utilizes the open source large vocabulary continuous
  speech recognition engine Julius (this package ships its own
  modified version).
Is this intended for main?  Doesn't Julius rely on the non-free HTK
I haven't really thought about it but the license shouldn't be an issue afaik.

This topic has come up multiple times already but have a look at theses discussions on why I think this should be ok:
