Nerd Dictation: Simple Dictation Software for Linux

I saw how #Kdenlive utilized VOSK to generate subtitles and found this software that works wonderfully on my Desktop.

Nerd Dictation is an open source, cross-platform voice dictation engine. It has been designed to provide users with a reliable, accurate and powerful alternative to the proprietary speech engines.

Playing with - it's actually easier to learn than I expected.

However, it doesn't have macros, forcing duplication in some common shapes.

2 hours later...

I turned OpenSCAD code into a crude LISP, with macros included. Under 100 lines of Python.

The network filesystem is restored and Gitea is back up without data loss.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

We might have found an unrelated issue with our CI (closed beta), but we'll focus on monitoring the production network.

Codeberg is a Germany-based service based upon free software #Gitea and, unlike GitHub, publicly involves their users in the development.

Please boost if you agree.
