    Its been a while since I checked, but Dragon is generally considered to be about the best. It really requires some effort to train the software to understand you though.

    Voice recognition overall has a long ways to go to be halfway useful. It requires a lot of training, and even then can only recognize so many wpm. Cosidering the average person speaks at over 200 wpm, and it will only recognize up to 80 wpm, it's not the best. But everything I've heared points to dragon as the best available. Take it or leave it:wink:
