I can't say that I tried this with building areas, I haven't built an area in over a year. But I use windows 7 voice recognition software at work for typing out reports occasionally. Gasp, I know winblows sucks, but I had an idea that if that was used with building areas for muds that it would take the pain out of describing rooms/mobs/objects out of it. You can literally close your eyes and pretend your in that room or looking at that mob or object and describe it in a microphone. The software will type it out. Then you cut and paste it in your game. Just a thought, if anyone still works on muds.
