    I'm assuming you want "Voice Recognition" to type what you say? I believe the current version of this for Mac OS X isn't capable of this yet. It's just capable of running certain scripts and menu's, etc.

    Yeah, Mac OS X doesn't have built-in speech-to-text capability. The built-in voice recognition only works for issuing commands. To get speech-to-text, you need to get a third party application.
