Dictation Programs

I have been watching dictation software with a lot of interest since 2004. Apart from the obvious use of being able to be more efficient by creating sms/email whilst on the move, I thought another good use was for a friend who had RSI and was not able to type any more.

Anyhow, I have been quite disappointed so far with the results. I think the best one is Dragon Dictate, but to be honest their product definitions confuses me and I have never worked out which one I need…

Google Voice looks as though it might be good. However it only seems possible in the US, so no good really if you want to keep legal.

This weekend though I tried Vlingo on the Android app market. This really seems to have got it cracked – and I might finally have a safer answer to sending an sms as I run down the stairs to the next meeting!
