It seems a little known fact, but macs do come bundled with speech recognition software. I just got my mac and spent quite some time playing with it. I can see it being very useful and more than just a novelty, but unfortunately I cant seem to get it to be relyable. Sometimes I need to say a phrase 2 or 3 times to get it to recognize. Also, if I leave the microphone on, it will sometimes execute random commands as if I had said them. I know I can just make a command phrase to activate the microphone, but thats just another word that needs to be painstakenly recognized before I can actually make any commands. These random commands happen even in a room as quiet as a mouse! Has anyone else had success in getting the voice recognition to function properly and on a relyable level or am I hoping too much out of this sofware? Thanks!
