Default Lousy typist find solution.

Have you seen the commercial for Dragon speech to text software?
I bought this new software package, it has virtually eliminated my typing errors, and almost hundred percent accurate in what I dictate.
No I have no affiliation with this company.
I totally wrote this post to this form with this software.
I bought my copy of Dragon natural speech to text home edition from Amazon.
I paid about $50 with shipping and tax included.
So if you're not a very good typist this may be your answer.

I've got the app on my I-Phone, and it works great. And I don't remember, but it was either free or just a couple of bucks. But yea, it does work great!

Just as a matter of interest Lee, how does it interpret your user name?

I have a PC laptop, a couple of tablets (one iPad 3 and several Android) and a desktop PC. What headset do you use and how long did the "training" period last? I tried dictation software years ago and it still had a long ways to go. What about operating systems, have you tried it on machines using Windows 7 and iOs 6? What version of software are you using?

just a question, but I think after reading all inputs it has been answered. Does this app. work with the Mac and Ipad OS?

I have a desktop PC, I also have a the iPad 3.
I understand there's an app for the iPad 3, I'm planning on downloading it this afternoon.
The PC that the software is installed on is a Windows 7 PC.
I'll let you know when I download the software for the iPad how that works.
This post was written with that software 100%.

If anyone is using windows 7 on your PC there is a program built in Called speech Recognition. So far I find , it works very well. And it is totally free. I typed this using it. Just do a search for speech recognition under help in windows .
Thanks Roxanne

Rob, I've just used it for texting. On those very rare occasions where I had to text while driving. Which is very easy. Tape your message, and then there's an option to post it to a text, e-mail, message, facebook or twitter. If some words didn't come out right, or it didn't understand it, you can fix it.

I don't understand why anyone text while driving. Even with this type software you still have to read what you wrote. I don't see how you can do that an drive.
I lost a son three years ago I wouldn't want to see that happen to anyone else.

The program also allows you to do extra features, you can launch Microsoft word.
Save text, do a save as, within Microsoft Word. Send messages to your Facebook account with speech commands. You can email and send emails with voice commands.
