    Is it available? From where? What is happening along these lines with Leopard? Or is that a secret?

    Voice-to-text is generally referred to as "dictation". For Mac OS, you basically have two main options:
    I'm going to go ahead and say, you were. What you probably saw is a Windows Vista demo, and your mind "collapsed" the concept of a feature you liked with the OS you preferred.

    MacOS has "Voice Over" in Tiger, but it doesn't quite do as much.

    All's not completely well in Windows-ville though:

    Just in case you want an injection of "smug". :)
