Dragon Naturally Speaking or ViaVoice,both these will allow speech to text,both are very good,just require "training" so they recognise your speech patterns.ViaVoice also can be used to control your PC(eg, you say "Start,Programs,etc" and the prog starts just as if you had clicked the shortcut with your mouse)There is also a Speech to Text facility in OfficeXP,but its crap unless you can do a damn good imitation of a Yank.
