7.32. NaturallySpeaking

Speech-recognition programs are far more advanced on Windows than they are on the Macintosh. Windows programs like Dragon NaturallySpeaking transcribe your dictated text with almost Star Trek–like accuracy, and even let you make corrections and manipulate the computer itself using all voice commands.

On the Mac, your choices are IBM ViaVoice (www-3.ibm.com/software/speech/mac) and iListen (www.macspeech.com). If you just can't use the keyboard, or don't want to, you can get by with either program. But neither, alas, offers anything close to the speed or accuracy of their Windows rivals.
