You might know Nuance Communications as part of the brains behind Siri but if you want a little speech-to-text magic on your desktop then have a play with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5, the world’s best-selling speech recognition software for the PC, despite it’s silly name – when you think of Dragons do you instantly think “they are so well spoken”. Even the TV ones aren’t very eloquent. But I digress.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5 adds new features that make it easier to create documents, send emails, search the internet, share social status and interact with a range of PC applications. Even better, there’s an app (you could probably do a drinking game for every review where I say that). Nuance has introduced the Dragon Remote Mic App a free app on the Apple app store which makes it possible to use an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad as a wireless microphone for Dragon via a Wi-Fi network connection.
