Command Voice Interface

Instead of SIRI or Cortana, why can't we have a spoken AmigaDOS interface, or CVI? It would function much the same as the CLI except that you would be speaking the commands, options, and paths into a microphone. With enough scripting (ARexx, Python, or AmigaDOS) perhaps it could be a little like SIRI?
I am certain that there are Amiga users who have been whining for AmigaOS to drop keyboards and mice in favor of a touchscreen interface. If AmigaOS goes down this route, I ask that it keep legacy support for physical keyboards and selection devices. AmigaOS may tap into a market of people who suffer from zombie finger, who hate touchscreen interfaces, and who might just like a well designed user interface. If Hyperion does ditch the traditional Amiga user interface, I ask that they skip over touchscreen interfaces for a CVI (Command Voice Interface). Instead of a CLI (Command Line Interface), let the user speak the commands and paths to the Amiga, which will respond via a new version of the narrator device.
