Dragon Naturally Speaking works quite well, but the licensing is very restrictive.


In what way?

Don Henson

The license dictates that you use the app on one machine only. You must go on line to receive a code to activate the app, and the code is good only for that machine.

I have heard that, if necessary, can obtain permission to move it to a new machine, but that involves contacting the company and convincing them that the new machine is the only one it will be used on.

That's pretty restrictive, all right. However, my requirement is important enough to me that I will put up with stupid Eulas of the proprietary world. I have Parkinson's disease, and my typing skills are steadily degrading. I find that dragon makes it easier to prepare responses and write articles. I would prefer to use open-source, but I was not able to find anything that works. If you know of any, I'd sure like to hear about them.
