    I was just wondering if anyone could recommend some voice typing software? I'm figuring it might be easier to type all my unique stuff via voice and then just go through it and making sure punctuation / grammer is good before publishing.

    Does anyone use this method & can recommend the software you use?

    Thanks alot,

    biffo

    I have used Dragon Naturally Speaking and its great. You have to 'teach' it your specific voice, which takes a an hour or two, but after that its very accurate.

    Agree with everyone - Dragon Naturally Speaking.

    I use version 9 with SP1.

    Haven't updated to 10 yet because I've heard tons of horror stories. Check the reviews at Amazon. Doesn't look ready for prime time yet.

    Version 9 is amazing once you have it trained.

    1 big tip - make sure you have a mic listed on the hardware compatibility list for Dragon (www.nuance.com). The mic makes all the difference.

    I just got a Plantronics USB headset mic listed on the hardware list at Nuance.com and my accuracy rate with Dragon went through the roof. Very helpful!
