Hi Justin,

(I’m cc’ing the lists, as this might be valuable information for others.
Hope that’s okay.)

Yes, I also saw that in the course of GNOME 3 Caribou got a lot of
attention. Since I couldn’t find an official release, I was just
wondering how far this is from completion, so that one can actually
start using it, and if word prediction was just an experiment or part of
the recent development efforts.

I think both cover slightly different usage scenarios, so it’d be great
to have both available.

Currently, I’m only doing a bit of research. My primary aim is to use
existing and stable software. But the parts I might end up writing
myself will be open source. I think primarily of an improved gespeaker,
or a new speechd frontend. (Having OpenMary support in speechd will
probably make things much easier.)

Besides actually writing code, I am planning to document the project, so
that others can benefit from my findings and experience.
