KDE Simon is a speech recognition program, but its last release happened back in 2013 and hasn't been brought into a KDE Frameworks 5 + Qt5 world, but development on it is restarting.

Mario Fux is looking to drive some new life into Simon speech recognition for KDE. For getting things going, Mario is looking at doing a final release of Simon that uses kdelibs4 and Qt4, following that the development focus will shift to making use of KDE Frameworks 5 and Qt5. There are already commits since 2013 to the KDE4/Qt4 version of Simon, warranting a release.

Mario is looking for interested KDE users to help in testing out new Simon code and other development help. More details via this blog post.
