    Anyone else use the Speech Recognition software on their Macs? I've been toying around with it and so far I've gotten it down close to 80% understanding my speech :) It's pretty cool! Just wondering if anyone uses it on a regular basis and has any feedback!

    Thanks.

    Even though I do not have a mac, I think all speech recognition technologies suck currently. They are getting better, but not enough to really understand the heavy accent that I have :(

    Ofcorse, I tried it in Mac and it's no better than in Vista.

    Dragon Naturally Speaking is fantastic...however ATM; only for Windoze. That said - Nuance has announced that they are going to be making a Dragon Naturally Speaking version for the Mac.
