Subject: Dragon Naturally Speaking vs?

Hello! I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I have been researching voice recognition software and the one that I keep coming across is Dragon Naturally Speaking. Has anyone used this? Is there anything else out there that would be better?

Hi Tweetybird,
Dragon seems to be the best and most expensive.
Is it for a child or an adult, as many of them have a problem with children speaking.

I have used it and it is OK. A good microphone is a must.

You can get it free at www.Piratebay.org

Dragon works pretty good, you just have to keep talking to it so it learns of your speech pattern. A good microphone and not speaking directly in the Mike is a must.
By accident I found Microsoft speech recognition software in my Microsoft word. Click on tools then click on speech, if you have the software wizard will take you through it to install it.
