As someone who worked on ViaVoice OSX back early 2001 I just wanted to add that we talked about doing either a poseAs on NSObject or building our own input method. Unless something has changed since then, a poseAs could have been done system wide for AppKit (Cocoa) applications and we could have bootstrapped the reco code. We didn't pursue it as most applications were still ported Carbon legacy code.
Also voice command control is a completely different thing to free voice recognition. I knew one of the chaps who worked at Apple doing their voice control stuff. If I recall, you could get their engine to work in your application with some coding (probably a mix of Interface Builder too).
BTW, my Yorkshire accent was the reason that ViaVoice OSX supported a UK model - I even changed "color" to "colour" in the UI when UK English was activated.
AFAIK there's only one other flat on hyperoptic, based on wifi access points I can see. Might be more on lower floors (thick concrete between floors).
On my iPhone 6S over wifi (not using their router btw) and speedtest I've had 489/395. Distance would be about 4-5 metres from couch to the Lynksys WRT 1900ACS with stock firmware (2.01?). The DD-WRT beta was terrible for wifi when I tried it.
Wired with a MacBook Pro (2011) I think I've had ~700.
Edit: There's no VM in the building so flats likely have Sky, since we have two LNB feeds per flat, and Sky Fibre.
