    Speech Recognition That Works?

    Hola! I have been trying to find some speech recognition package for general dictation use.

    I have noticed, when watching some of my favorite informational TV programs, that, when I have the TV on mute, there appears Captioning at the bottom.

    Sometimes, it is obviously from a prepared text. But oft times it appears to be coming up in real-time! Not perfect - with a good number of glitches - but I would say very good! One CAN guess what is being said!

    Now, my dear wife can hardly use her arm to write. She suffers much from a muscle ailment.

    But she likes to transcribe some of the medical news programs which she tapes from the internet broadcasts - and it is killing her arm to do it.

    So - I am very curious about WHAT software is being used to produce this good response for real-time captioning!

    OR - some kind of software that can be used for listening to general voices on the sound card system and rendering a reasonably recognizable rendition of what is being said.

    I have tried a somewhat older version of Dragon Naturally Speaking - but it insists on
