Seamless speech recognition is one of those holy grails of computing, and although we're not yet at the Star Trek level, the accuracy of speech recognition on the Mac took a major step forward this year with the release of MacSpeech Dictate, which uses the same engine as the Windows market leader - Nuance's Dragon NaturallySpeaking. The current MacSpeech Dictate 1.2 adds the capability to spell out unusual words or acronyms, phrase training that enables users to fix incorrectly recognized words right away, and a Move command for verbal editing.

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win a copy of MacSpeech Dictate, worth $199. Entrants will also receive a discount on MacSpeech Dictate, so be sure to enter at the DealBITS page.
