The Voice Recognition software sounds like it could be very beneficial. Is
it possible to obtain demonstration versions - beta versions of these
products to see how effective they might be?

I have been using Dragon NaturallySpeaking for about five years--after
an exhaustive look at what was available then. Earlier versions of DNS
had a few bugs that made it less than productive. However, they've
appeard to have worked that all out. I now have version 5.0 which hasn't
had a problem at all. It is also easy to install and "training" doesn't
take long (at the most 10-20 minutes to set up voice files.) I use DNS
for technical documents and find it can handle the vocabulary well as it
"learns" your vocabulary so you don't have to constantly spell out
words. For me, it does have some difficulty with the differences between
are and our, end and and, if and it. But, that's because I tend to
pronounce them the same way. It gives its best guess.
