Assuming you can get at the stream of digital sound coming in and the
computer's fast enough and has enough memory, speech recognition
should be possible with most languages that can get at the bits in
bytes. The "computer's fast enough" condition would be the biggie
with REBOL though. I doubt it's the ideal language for the job.

Once again, if you can get the digital data from the CD then REBOL
should be able to do it, and this time speed wouldn't be a factor, as
it wouldn't matter (from a technical point of view) if it took a day
or two to copy stuff from the CD - you'd still be able to get a
Right - I note on Escribe that Andrew Martin's replied to this too,
(not in my mailbox yet), so I wonder whether he says much the same
Hmmm. He says we'll have to wait 10 years for PCs to get up to speed
to allow REBOL to do it. ;-) And for both speech recognition and
ripping. Depends what you mean by ripping I guess...
