voice password instead of normal os password?

I seem to remember in the early os's that you could choose to use your voice as a password instead of typing the password. Does anyone know of a program like this for os x?

thanks

Ummm, yeah.

That's right. Mac OS 9 allows you to login to your computer using either a typed or spoken password. Did Apple eliminate this from OS X? If so, there's bundled software that ships with OS X that allows you to use voice passwords. It is called: Mac OS 9. Blum 3

To be perfectly honest, I really don't know much about voice recognition on the Macintosh. I very briefly played with speakable items on an iMac, but other than that, I'm in the dark.

I'm sure somebody here must have dabbled with voice somewhere along the line and can offer some insight... Anyone?

Here's some insight:

Voice recognition *sucks*, you certainly wouldn't want to lock yourself out of your Mac just because the demented software can't tell who's speaking or what they're saying.

I am not worried about that b

I am not worried about that because i set the root password and keep it active all the time so if i locked myself oujt it would be easy enough to reset my password.

Are you the guy?

beige g3 266, in custom plexi glass case.

Are you the guy that built that really cool plexi-glass Mac with the balsa wood air ducts? Let me see if I can find a picture...

Okay, I found it. I guess it was an iMac mod...

...and not a beige G3 mod.

Anyway, got any pics of your plexi-glass beige G3 that you'd like to share?
