    So... I tried out the voice typing option on my mac...

    Original text was something like this...

    [what I said]What is a gluten free diet? That is not just any type of diet.
    [what came out] What is looking great day? That would have been died as they just let me know.

    decided to try again...
    [what I said] What is a gluten free diet? The gluten free diet is not weight loss diet or health died nether is it detox diet..
    [what came out] What is the big day? The good hippie diet is not let last day it's not a hell day I need that diet that.

    Screw my eastern European accent...

    I guess i'm stuck to typing...

    yes, I agree! apple is pathetic when it comes to recognising voices across different accents , even I am looking for a substitute, possibly a google app which works on mac.... google is so far been very accurate in recognition at least when i tried on android...

    There are other services you could use, some people I know use Dragon Speech Recognition, I guess it works well.
