Does anyone have Dragon?

That headset that lets you speak comands into your computer. Or speak as it writes for you? I think it looks so cool and has great potential, but does it really work?

  • I don't have that, but I do have the Dragon Dictation App for my iPhone. It works great. I don't have to try to text at all. I just push the button and speak and it does all the work for me!

  • I don't but I want one! I'm a student and I have to write a lot of papers. Writing them I don't mind, but then having to type them up, bah! That's the worst part for me.

  • Tararenee, I said the same to my DH...the potential that has for students. Ok, now I will dictate a paper in MLA format, and poof! Done!

  • Don't have it but my son used it at his high school (he is dyslexic) and it helped him get through his courses. Doubt he would have made it otherwise. Even with my help.

  • One of the guys here at work has it but be careful because the program is a memory hog - make sure your system can handle it.
