Software to type while i talk

Can anyone suggest some software that will type into my PC while i dictate. Either freeware or to buy. I have an old pentium 3 running XP Pro could switch to 98 if required.

But I'm pretty sure I saw such a programme on one of the coverdiscs on a PC magazine while looking on the shelves last week.

I wasn't paying attention, so apologies if I'm wrong... but it's probably worth having a mosey down to the newsagents to see whats on offer on that front.

There definately was one on some coverdisc about 6 months ago... I installed and tried it, just out of curiousity. I was reasonably impressed, but with no need for it I uninstalled it.

Also, this seems a suitable place to mention that the browser "Opera" has a voice facility... I can't remember exactly the sttiing up procedure, but you can train it to recognise your voice for the "standard" instructions, "Close, New Window, etc.

Good luck,

Dragon is definitely the program to go for, you will need to train it to get optimum results.

Have a look at this one. I bought it last year as a present for my niece and she likes it.

Regardless of the Software ~ I don't think that your PC is up to the job.

Although there are programs that will run on a Pentium 3, I think that most of the current Software needs 512MB of RAM or more. Switching it to 98se wou;ld free up Memory and using an older Version of Dragon Naturally Speaking could work but the older versions needed a deal of education and needed to be consciously Proof-Read
