Voice Activation for Camera

Found this over at POTN forums.

I wrote a voice control software for the Canon EOS Utility. It allows nearly complete control of the software by voice. Everything from focus and shooting to aperture, shutter, ev, and white balance. It even lets you open Live View and Zoom and access the up/down/left/right buttons on the zoom screen all by voice.

I see the software having lots of possible uses, two being:

1. For people who test light and techniques on themselves because it will allow them to use Live View and Auto-focus (remote shutter releases don't activate the Live View's auto-focus)

2. For studio photographers so they can take shots and adjust camera settings while helping the subject to pose or even while holding up light modifiers!

Here's a small demo video I made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpLBy4-WXE4

I didn't plan on releasing this to the public but if enough people were interested I'd take the time to refine the software and put it out there. I'm a professional software developer so I'd want to make sure to make this a quality app as well as to do some beta testing.

So, would anyone be interested in this software?
