I decided to try even though I have Windows 7. It types as I talk after a brief delay, but only an occasional word that I said plus lots of words that apparently came from nowhere. My first sentence, I spoke was "now is the hour to take a shower while the bloom is on the sage" followed by other nonsence coments. Then I started reading what it wrote out loud and it kept typing repeating only an occassional word. Following is the document only slightly edited: Not once did hour to take a shower of the loan was on Prozac I four Florida to go on a lot of salesman's Bobbitt and we were testing streams at 1/8 00

    Yes; stop giving it feedback and say the same thing repeatedly.

    What do the directions say? My old mac has a limited voice control and if I turned off keywords, my cat could trigger the voice response. The software I used didn't take much time to "learn" pronunciation but being 10+ years old, it was very limited. I learned to turn it off a long time ago, it was only programmed to tell a couple of jokes and they got old very fast.

    Did you train it according to the instructions first?

    It's the software (together with a third part add on that allows easy addition of new words) Terry Pratchett has been using to write his books since losing the ability to touch-type from PCA, which would rather indicate that you're not using it right to get such a result as you did.
