4 out of 5 eggsI'm impressed!

Pros: Excellent recognition, even of obscure words. Amazingly, it even recognizes terms like mtDNA and obscure names like Washoe. Once trained with a good microphone, it works well even with fluctuating voice levels and with modest background noise. I am dictating this part of the review and have not had to correct anything. Custom words can be added and edited with surprising ease.

Cons: The supplied microphone is useless. That's actually a good thing; if it worked you'd be tempted to wear it and that would be terribly painful!
Voice commands are a mixed feature. When they work right they are a minor convenience, but when they are confused the least frustrating way out is with mouse and keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I am using the Logitech ClearChat Pro USB Circumaural Headset. I'm sure other microphones work well but I doubt that any cheap ones do. Unless you have a good microphone I recommend ordering one when you order this product.
Computers with slow processors and limited memory might not work as well.
At this point I have dictated probably 20 pages of text and I'm very happy with the results.
