Hi :) I am wondering if anyone here uses any speech recognition packages or has any idea about which ones work well. I think the preference is for something working well on Linux but it might be interesting to hear about others.
I am fairly sure Macs used to have something about 20 years ago. Also vague memory of "Dragon" or something but really can't remember.
