Convert video to text?

A few years ago I videoed a friend making some (long) speeches. He would now like them converted to text from their current .wmv.
He has Dragon voice-to-text software so I guess at worst we could use speaker to mic but I wondered if it's possible to do 'internally' (preferably using freeware)?
Or maybe video - audio, then audio - text?
Thanks.

A quick Google came up with this click here

No idea if any good or not.

Audiocity click here can record anything that is playing through the speakers

Play the wmv file and record the speech with Audiocity.

Thanks both. I have Audacity so guess I'll have to use that.
