Going Postal

Voices Carry

While great ideas don't always happen around a keyboard, Dragon Naturally Speaking Mobile can preserve genius wherever you go. The software works with an accompanying palm-sized, featherweight recorder that captures up to 160 of your spoken words per minute. Plug it into a PC and create nearly flawless written transcriptions. Incredibly, the system can recognize more than 230,000 words and generally learns the idiosyncracies of your voice in about half an hour. Perfect for road warriors looking to forsake typing on tiny handhelds or cumbersome laptops.
