    Hey all,

    I was playing around with my new macbook and was playing around with some of the new features - like my mac, I wanted to try dictation - clicked the fn button twice. It prompted me to download enchanted dictation. I did so, but noticed the download is gigantic - 785 MB.

    I wanted to uninstall it, but I think it was too late - a new speech and dictation option is available in system preferences.

    Further, this thing uses a GIG OF RAM if it is activated. I obviously disabled it, but since I have a SSD, I want that 785 MB back for something I could actually use.

    How do I recover this space?

    System Preferences: Speech & Dictation: uncheck and it should remove.
