any free dictation software

Hey everyone,
I'm in a bit of a rush, writing a terribly long paper. Any dictation software available for free or at least that has a trial available? Any to scan a handwritten document into a .doc?
Thanks,
wmmk

Hmm. Have a PC? (Or Parallels/etc) My Dell Printer (on the PC obviously) can scan handwritten docs. into text. I did a bit of searching & couldn't find anything for Mac. Good luck though.

I think it uses the Dell AIO software that comes with their all in ones. I haven't used the program in a while, & I think it gets a few of the words wrong (naturally) so you have to go through and check it all.

Pretty handy though.

hey, saw that. thanks. anyway, got the paper typed and turned it. I really need to get one of those stands that you put looseleaf in so it's at eye level when you type. that'd make everything way, way faster!
