I have a couple of WAV files which contain spoken information.  I am willing to convert it to mp3 or any other suitable format as desired by the application.

I am looking for a way to generate  text from this audio file.

Some opensource application which uses speech recognition technology.. I understand that the output will not be accurate, but, something is better than nothing.

The OS is Windows here.

If we need to move it to a different zone, mods, please free to move it around.

Have you considered using a commercial package like Dragon Naturally Speaking. The quality of transcription has improved immensely in recent years. If your chosen package doesn't allow for an audio file as input, you could always play the files into the microphone input from an iPod or the computer's own media player..
