Control Apps. with voice?

I have an idea for networking my house, but to do it, I need to be able to speak a command, say "Play My Music...Random", and it will open up MusicMatch (or some other MP3 program), shuffle the music, then play it back. Anyone know of such a thing?

Something that could open various programs with voice commands would be perfect. I looked into Via Voice and Dragon Naturally Speaking, but I couldn't tell if they were able to do this type of thing. Or if there is something better out there.

Well, to answer my own question (and also to point out a good program if anyone else is interested)...Via Voice Advanced Edition for Windows 9.0 seems to be able to do this. You can set up macros that will open programs and perform keystrokes or mouse clicks. Seems pretty accurate too. Hope this helps someone else too
