IDEs that look to have some degree of Ruby auto completion support:
    http://wiki.netbeans.info/wiki/view/Ruby
    http://www.aptana.com/rails/
    http://www.sapphiresteel.com/
    http://www.activestate.com/Products/komodo_ide/

I have no idea how well they work in general or if they would work
with your voice software.
