We are investigating the use of voice recognition systems for a variety
applications, primarily for students with disabilities but also for
without a high level of computer competence and keyboard skills.

So far we have identified, by name only, three systems - DragonDictate,
Kurzweil Voice and PowerSecretary. Are there any others we should know

Can anyone tell me where I can get more information about these -
especially their respective strengths and weaknesses for different types
users - for academic/study and office uses. Windows and Macintosh users
need to be catered for, so this information is also relevant.

Which of these are available in Australia - and at what cost?
As the selected system(s) is/are likely to be made available to students
with difficulties, cost is going to be a factor.
What support available if needed?

[I apologize to people who get more than one copy of this request as a
result of cross-posting etc but I need to canvass as amany sources of
information as quickly as possible.]
