The best index i could find is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speech_recognition_software_for_Linux

An article of 3 years ago i found on this claims accuracy was poor then for many (almost all).
thing might have been changed since then.

Here an article about more recent testing.
You can use the Google engine as well, which would also mean Google can harvest any data from it.

Many of the projects are research projects, not final products, so YMMV and you may have to try more than one.
yeah i missed it, install simon from source package as it is not available in ubuntu 18 repo
