    Absolutely in love with my Rev C Air; it is my only computer and it is all I need.

    But I may need to have surgery to remove a cyst (too much typing) below the index finger on my strong hand and I am thinking of trying Voice Recognition Software for the weeks I am recovering.

    But alas no microphone jack. I never ever use a microphone for anything, so I don't know:

    Is there such thing as a USB mic. Can anyone recommend one. Thanks.

    I believe that the good voice recognition programs require a dedicated microphone, as opposed to the built in. That's one criticism of even the best, but I think that is the way it is.

    Use a logitech USB headset with mic

    Voice recognition software recommend these anyhow. I have a Logitech one and it works great with my MBA
