I just discovered I have acquired this with my Windows 7. Tried it out and it just writes jibberish when I talk but I don't have a microphone and talking to the computer is useless. Do any of you use this type of software for writing and if so, what kind of microphone do you have? Does it recognize your voice and does it type exactly what you are saying? I think I could use this to get my thoughts on paper, if I could get it to work correctly.

NO ONE uses this software to write??? Hard to believe. I would much rather "say it" than type it. Oh well. Guess its just my preference.

No. I type 130 wpm. In those voice recognition programs, it would prove slower to go back and correct the errors.

A lot depends on how you "train" the software to recognize your voice and how you enunciate words. I have found the software to be helpful at times when I am writing general statements like now. When you begin to use esoteric words or phrasing from within a specific discipline, it can become tricky.

I've just stated playing around with Speechnotes, which is free. You can ony use it on a desktop computer and it works with Chrome. So far, it's doing a pretty decent job. Holy moly -- I had hand-written so much and got it all squared away in type-mode fairly quickly.
