I recently bought Dragon Naturally Speaking v12. It is speech recognition software. I got the home edition for $99. Pros: works beautifully, recognizes my speech accurately and transposes it into an internal DragonPad, which is easily transferrable to another document. It keeps up with my pace of speech. Cons: does not read MP3 files, slows down considerably when trying to dictate right into a Word document, is good for only one installation. Overall, it's a new way to think and write and I recommend it.
