    Hello all,

    Turns out I have developed some form of RSI (doctors are unsure of exactly what it is until they do more tests) after a couple of weeks of marathon guitar and typing sessions, but I have more work to do (I usually type upto 10000 words per week for college) over the next year!

    I really need help guys, not being able to type means my degree is down the pan as i'm just going into my final year.

    Is there any software or hardware that could let me get on with my work?

    I am in the UK if that is important.

    Thanks for any help you may be able to offer.

    :(:(:(

    I have started using MacSpeech Dictate - works fairly well, and probably one of the best options for a Mac. Consider getting a high quality microphone with it.

    i have just been looking at this now online, could you comment more on it?

    Also, how much is it going to cost me to get it in the uk, and also a decent microphone?
