    Is there any way to use speech recognition to type in Pages or Word? I use the speech recognition alot and was trying to find if I could but I couldn't find anything. Thank you for your help.

    "Speech reocgnition" as in the speech recognition built into Mac OS cannot actually translate what you are saying into text, no. It simply compares your voice to pre-installed commands to perform certain functions.

    What you're looking for is called dictation. Dictation is generally very unreliable and I wouldn't recommend it.

    Thanks for the information. I wasn't going to use it, I just wanted to see if it was possible. Thanks again

    iListen is not an Apple product.
