"Absolutely useless for dictation"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been a registered user, and upgrader -- since this product was introduced
eons ago at MacWorld. I bought two seats based on a demo. After lengthy
'training' and tweaks... the program is still as inaccurate and buggy as it was when
I first used it.
I suspect that the recognition engine is the fault as the Google Search app on
my Iphone works flawlessly -- without training and tweaks -- and does so on an
iPhone mic at arms length in a noisy car.
Avoid this at all costs. It is not worth the money -- and importantly -- the time.
