Are you tired of typing? If you're using an Intel-based Mac OS X 10.6 or greater, you might be interested in the new speech recognition software from Nuance, Dragon Dictate for Mac. This software will enable you to accomplish quite a bit by just using your voice.
Dragon Dictate turns your talk into text. And your text can talk back. Dictate documents and use the proofreader command to have your Mac read the text back to you. You can also perform voice command searches and even your mouse and cursor will know that your every spoken wish is their command. Nuance claims that you can talk three times faster than you can type, so this may save you some time or give your stiff fingers a rest. You might even think it just sounds like fun. Some of us like the idea of our personal technology appearing to be obedient.
According to PCWorld, boxed versions of Dragon Dictate that include a headset are available now. Mac users who have previously purchased MacSpeech Dictate and PC users that ownÂ Dragon NaturallySpeaking can purchase upgrades for a limited time.
Here's a short demonstration of document dictation using Dragon Dictate.
