The Quick Settings app puts that at your fingertips and, by default, is launched with a long-press on the search button.

long-press on the search button (very right one) gives me 'Speak now' window – Radek Sep 21 '10 at 1:10
Yes. With this installed (until you choose a default) it will prompt you for which action you want. – Al E. Sep 21 '10 at 1:20
I didn't get it first time... works marvelously ... thank you Al – Radek Sep 21 '10 at 1:32
