In a manner of speaking

Well full points to Dragon dictation software. After some months of waiting for it to arrive in Australia on the iPhone and iPad it is here and it works very very well. It has very good voice recognition and the user interface is simple and intuitive. It is certainly a pleasure to be able to dictate something and have it come out as a sensible sentence rather than as gobbledygook. It does take some time to get used to talking into the iPhone and using it as a dictation device but it is something I'm going to learn to love. (Of course this piece has been written entirely using Dragon and hasn't it done well?)

I wonder if you bought it from one of my students/ he is a distributor who uses it himself, in a wheelchair, with restricted mobility and legally blind we had to request it be downloaded in the classroom for Alex to use it!

That's the beauty of the iPhone - the software was free!
