kuwese, thanks for the tip....it's always good to learn something new!

I tried Dragon and it worked really good, it actually opens docs and all other good stuff as well as activating the PC, and get this, it typed as fast as I spoke and that was too cool. It just needed some tweaking with certain words. I got it as a gift last Christmas.

I use Dragon too, and it's the only software like it that actually works. With tweaks, like XPuser said.

All voice activated applications may work but they usually need three things. One is a training that most software has. You speak words and visually correct them as you go.
Second is a good or best quality headset. A good microphone really makes a lot of improvement it the quality of results.

The last is that way a person speaks. Apparently it can't understand Texan one lick. A person that hasn't mastered the native language may have some trouble.
