OK, I guess that's proof I'm officially old. I look at what I type and correct spelling errors.

There is one question that was asked that I didn't answer.
What do you use for microphone?
Headset with microphone built in comes with the package.

Gary, sorry about your son. I've lost one too, he was much older (27), and wasn't to a car accident. But I do understand your concern, and trust me, as a dad and granddad, I don't do it (texting) often, and only under certain circumstances. And if I can, I pull over. I don't even answer my phone if I'm in any traffic, unless its my wife.

Lee, there's no need for an app for your I-Phone... it's built in automatically. I have the I-Phone and My husband (who has a Droid) also has it... Look on your keypad where you would type: There is a little microphone to the left of the space bar. Tap it, wait for the tone, and speak. When you're done speaking, tap the "done" button. Same as your app, if there is something wrong with spelling, or it didn't understand you, the word can be tapped and corrected.

Barb, that must be a 4S or 5 you have. I have the I-phone 4 and to the left of my space bar is the button to go from letters to numbers.

You can do the same thing with Speech Recognition that is built into Windows 7.
Just an FYI. I use it every day.

Lee, I was just pulling your socks - not being from USA I assumed (perhaps wrongly?) that "N'awlins" is a distorted phonetic of "New Orleans", and if so, would your program 'understand' you - but just having fun! Rob

I use the Dragon Dictation App on my ipad. It is a free app and works well enough for me to use it when writing ebooks.

Pros: It is free and works well.

Con: It requires a wifi connection to work.

Hmmm my apologies. Yes, I do have the 4s. My kb has 2 buttons: 1 to go from alpha to numerical and between that and my space bar a little microphone. I figured they all would have it as my droid had it as well before I got the 4s. I didn't know what the changes were from 4 to 4s.
