Marguerite Krupp wants our collective wisdom, advice, and experiences with voice recognition software packages.

In 1998, I worked with a person who had an accident resulting in very limited use of his arms and hands. He used both Dragon and IBM. I don't recall which was best, but I am sure both have improved significantly.

They worked quite well, but they did have some interesting problems. They wrote exactly what he said, requiring quite a bit of editing. The microphone was quite sensitive and we often had to edit out the conversations outside his cube.

The software did succeed in keeping a good person on the job and productive. The editing was often good for a laugh (I wonder if some of the other employees realized that their words were being recorded) and wasn't hard.

Plug "voice recognition software" into Google for lots more info.
