The VS example might work with menu options, but I don't see how it would work for code. Every programmer has his/her own way of pronouncing variables (e.g. es que ell vs. sequel for SQL), all of which would have to be taken into account.

You would also require localization even for things like pronouncing the alphabet. I remember a case where I had to spell out a word for a Frenchman, and he kept hearing my 'E' as 'I', because that's how it's pronounced in French. Smile | :)

As an experiment, I suggest that you sit with another programmer, and try to write and edit a program by dictation. I predict that you will find it an exercise in frustration.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
