Yes, the DBus interface exposes a good chunk of functionality -- and if something is not there, let us know, it isn't too difficult to add a DBus wrapper to any method existing in KStars.

There is an open-source speech recognition engine called CMU Sphinx, and there's also KDE's speech recognition efforts named Simon. I don't know the state of either project, but I presume they are still not using Deep Neural Networks, and it's very unlikely that they are as good as Amazon's or Google's APIs due to the sheer amount of data they have. Yet, they might actually work pretty well for a small list of known commands, and that was the intention for Simon at least as far as I know.
