viavoice dictation and emacspeak

You definitely need to enroll/train the engine before
dictation will work.

I myself did this using an enroll script written using
tcl/smapi --I suspect that script is part of the cvs archive
for tclsmapi. 
Look for it there, and if you dont find it let me know.

Note that when training it you should use headphones for the
speech output so the thing doesn't get confused.

Once trained, it works fine with the recognized speech
spoken back as text gets inserted.
