    Hey guys.. I have recorded a voice interview and is wondering if there is a quick way to type these recording out? maybe something that analyse the recording file or something that type when you speak? THANKS

    I second a request for such a software, it would be really useful for writing papers- but voice recognition is notoriously picky about recognising certain voices

    There have been a few threads about it, an mroogle search will find them.
    That said, speech recognition requires you to train the computer to recognize your voice. It takes time. Also you will still have to proof whatever you dictate and expect errors.

    http://www.macspeech.com/ is native to OS X - no msWin required. As with any speech recognition, there will be issues (already noted on this thread), especially you are talking about recorded audio.

    Dragon Naturally speaking starts at $99 and goes up depending on what level you want.

    This is not the type of application you are going to get for free. The programs are very complex due to the nature of speech and grammar.
