    I have used it and it sucks and if it works you speak like a retard, no offence to mentally disabled people you just have to talk really slow for it to understand you

    Um Is great after you get to use it. You do need to train it. You do NOT have to speak slow, you cna speak in a normal pattern I use it extensively.

    I havnt tried both. But i had a friend come over who has naturally speaking and he tried using vista. He said naturally speaking was far superior. Ive tried the vista recognition for myself and it isnt anything to write home about.

    I even locked myself in my bedroom, and spoke so slow and it still muffs it up.

    I used the vista version and after awhile it did very well....as said above you do have to train it to understand you.
    Ive not used DNS because of the huge file it takes to download and this came with my pc.
    After about 5 hours of fooling around vista hit it pretty close to 90% or better in recognition.
    I was impressed after the miserable start. I have a bit of a southern accent and none of them fucking phone voice thingies can understand me.
    I dont use it much but i suspect it will improve with more use.

    I could never get Vista to work. Took me only about 30 minutes to get DNS understanding me almost perfectly.

    definately stick with naturally speaking. the vista recognition is utter garbage.
