I've started to use speech recognition software that is built into windows seven. I am excited to start writing more but the problem was that my fingers heard from typing all day of work. So talking enables me to write without impacting my hands. The quality is quite good. It can sometimes be faster than typing any ways. I am also using additional software to control programs - http://vocola.net/. It is too early to tell whether this will stick but early signs are positive.
