Interesting:  I was  copying a qso on 20M-psk31, this evening.  The one fellow mentioned that he was using some-kind of software that transferred his speech to typing for the input, in the digital software program.  It save him from having to type.

He mentioned the software name "Dragon III" of the speech software.

Does anyone know or heard what this software is Huh (website Huh)

That's something I need because of my ongoing physical handicap !!!

Hope I placed this question in the correct forum

The only thing I'm aware of is those 5 minute commercials on TV for Dragon Software. It is a speech to text program. Now...how to take that speech to text on the computer to PSK31? Maybe it is possible to output the text to anywhere on the computer including PSK31.

The Dragon software works quite well, but keep in mind that speech recognition software is included in Windows Vista, 7, and 8.  (I don't know if it's included in all versions; Microsoft has a habit of dropping features from some of the cheaper versions.)

I wonder how good it is, especially with broad accents?

Back some 50+ years ago, work on auto translation by computer was starting. Translation of some German engineering material kept producing the term 'water sheep'. A human translator sorted it out - 'water sheep' was the nearest the computer could get to 'hydraulic ram'.

To err is human - to really foul things up, you need a computer!

Also, the new version of OS X (Apple Macintosh) includes voice recognition built-in:
