Have just installed Dragon NaturallySpeaking on my laptop.
Absolutely brilliant! It hardly ever gets it wrong. I am dictating this post using Dragon. It takes a bit of getting used to but I think it's going to fit the bill nicely. About three times faster than manual typing. Does anyone else use speech recognition software? Do you find useful or not?
I have used Dragon on and off for a few years. The latest version (V13) is particularly impressive and, as you say, it can achieve very high accuracy. It can be quicker than typing especially if you can master the art of dictating whole sentences at a time. I have also found it very beneficial to speak to other Dragons to share tips and techniques.
For some reason I seem to fall back to typing if I find my fingers to be responsive enough.
