comment How can we use Dragon NaturallySpeaking to code more efficiently?
@SamtheBrand 3 days after nobody else than me cast a re-open vote. I think that barely anyone is interested in voice recognition here, and I think something else but that would be banned as a comment.

@SamtheBrand OK I'll give a try, we'll see what happens... in the meantime I wish there was some application or web service to alert me whenever one of my StackExchange question is put on hold / gets on closed.

@SamtheBrand The source code for voice commands isn't online yet, it should have been released in June or July on github.com/tavisrudd?tab=repositories but from what I can see it's yet another conference's vanished promise... Btw do you know to which SE I can migrate this question? It got recently closed on this SE, and my last question that got closed here was deleted afterward without any warning, with no respect at all for user created content. Otherwise I'll take everything to Quora.

comment Does using a task bar on each monitor showing only the windows that are located on that monitor improves computer productivity?
I'd say it's in the same field as the question does multiple computer screens reduce productivity?, which seemed to be considered on-topic.

comment How does office temperature affect productivity?
Well the PDF I linked contain references and a very short summary of each of them: 1) This seems to me more useful than the 2 other answers that relate on personal experience or intuition only 2) The other answer links to 2 articles without summarizing put aside the 21 - 22°C and the graph. 3) IMHO it does answer most of the question, which is around office temperature vs.productivity. 4) For more reading: ergo.human.cornell.edu/studentdownloads/dea3500notes/thermal/… 5) It's hard to summarize experiments with different conditions and different results.

Well it can be useful to have a good voice recognition engine for programming via voice. Unfortunately, many people such as le_garry aren't aware of the accuracy of cutting edge voice recognition engines (otherwise I guess more people would have looked into programming via voice). Hence my previous comment.

Voice recognition works extremely well. Demonstration in French: youtu.be/FODUScE6-Ek (hopefully I'll be able to do the same soon in English). Here is an excerpt of an e-mail I received today: "amazingly after just the intro session with dns12 (on dilbert) he could read a paper abstract with heavy scientific jargon and get 99% accuracy (two words missed)!". Google voice recognition has also become very good.

Thanks for your answer! Just 3 questions: 1) Can we create a custom mode in Dragon NaturallySpeaking? 2) How do you deal with variables (how do you call them) ? 3) Dragon NaturallySpeaking sometimes add automatically spaces: how do you avoid this (e.g. if you say "variable name open bracket" there might be a space between the variable name and the bracket, which you probably want to avoid)?
