My 16 year old son is quite dyslexic and has used Dragon for the
past five or six years. I'm not sure what version he is on at the
moment but its one less than a year old.
He does quite well with it (at least exceedingly better than paper and
pencil). I think he has mentioned that it has improved over the years
(I'd ask him directly, but its Sunday morning and I don't expect him
to be coherent for at least 4 more hours). He has, however, spent hours
if not days training it.
I've played with it myself, but have never invested the time needed
to get it and myself trained enough to be effective with it.
A quite-disabled friend has been using Dragon for quite a while. He likes it
a lot and says that it gets better with every release.

Anybody have any up to date experience with voice recognition
software such as Dragon.
Years ago tried it's predecessor, Naturally Speaking,
but it lacked a lot.

TER you get it to recognize how YOU speak. I had some material that I nee
ded to copy from a source book for a talk I was giving. Being able to just
read it into Dragon was really a huge help.
Many thanks to those who responded.
It would appear that the productivity of Dragon is directly
proportional to the amount of work you are willing to
spend developing solutions for your needs.
So what else is new?
It would be cheap to find out. After rebate, version 12 is about
the price of shipping.
There are as many "deals" as there are product variations.
The question I was asking, are any of them worth a hoot?
You can start with the ads on late night TV followed by all
kind of "Deals".
