USB Microphone via RDP (ViaVoice in a thin client environment)

We are looking at outfitting our office with Thin Clients using VMWARE and RDP or WYSE. The main limitation we are finding is not being able to use microphones over RDP for ViaVoice. Our proprietary software limits us to the use of ViaVoice only as apposed to Dragon. I have seen extensions and plugins to use Dragon Naturally speaking with thin clients such as Citrix, but nothing for ViaVoice.
My main objective is to get audio from a Mic at on a thin client within the local LAN to the server on another floor which holds the workstation image and use ViaVoice for speech recognition. We primarily use USB based mics for this. One option I'm looking at is a USB extender, but I'm worried that I can only find a USB extender that works over a max of 100m and our cable runs may exceed that.

Any other suggestions on how to use ViaVoice in a thin client environment (rdp or wyse) would be appreciated.

Hi. We have researched heavily and found for audio and video, WYSE have a firmware upgrade for their terminals and a dll for the workstation that gives you great video and audio when connecting via RDP as it redirects the video and audio streams outside of the RDP connection and uses it's own protocol.

As for USB over RDP, we haven't found a solution. An alternative is the new IBM HC10 Blade workstations. Pretty much the same concept as a WYSE terminal with RDP, but it uses their own protocols and you can run high end video, audio, all usb devices, etc. Pretty much gives you the full workstation experience with server grade hardware.
