does anyone know of any free speech to text programs for mac? Don't want text to speech, need something that I can dictate to. This would make my life uber productive.

i'd be interested also if there are any out there?
Even paid programs? I've yet to find any software that does this for mac?

Its still the holy grail of computing, and still miles away. Maybe something cool will come our way with Leopard, or you could try out the speech recognition in Vista. The original demo was a joke (check out YouTube), but it is supposed to be okay.

Good luck!
