"The Mac version, whose 4.0 version just came out, is also freakishily fast and accurate; I can dictate many pages without spotting a single transcription mistake.
You can control your Mac, too: opening and closing windows, switching programs, operating menus, “pressing keys” by voice, and so on. I love creating “voice macros”: You set these up so that you say one thing, and it types another. When you answer a lot of repetitive email, voice macros are a godsend."
