Speaking about computer programs, I will like to mention another program that just came in my doors, that is Dragon Naturally Speaking, version 13 Premium, from Nuance.com
I have used the program occasionally over the last years, but has never become quite familiar with it. I think that is somewhat due to the program itself, but also to my way of speaking and pronunciation.
I find this version 13 much improved. It works much more efficiently even on my old computer (4 to 5 years old), and it is much more able to handle my not so good pronunciation. I think I will use this program much more often from now on, for example when I want to take down some excerpts from books or articles I am reading, or in the process of writing my own works.
Have a look at the Nuance NaturallySpeaking.
