Speech recognition?

Processing photos is tiring enough with a mouse and keyboard. The thought of controlling Lightroom by voice is upsetting.

The thought of using speech recognition to accurately output the endless stream on non-word characters that coding demands is frightening. I mean:

int main(int argc, const char * argv[]) {

    @autoreleasepool {
        NSLog(@"Hello, World!");
    return 0;

It would make me pack up and immediately go home :) We're a long way off from voice being an acceptable input for coding. I'm still waiting for Siri and Google Now to hear me every time I ask for a good burger joint. They're good, but they've a ways to go on just the basics.
