Apple Announces Dictation For the Mac

Apple announced a new feature called dictation that will allow users to talk to their computer and have their words transcribed into text. This feature is similar to dictation on the iPhone 4S and The New iPad. The feature will be built into OS X Mountain Lion. Dication is simular to the Windows and Mac program called Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Apple says the following about dictation,
Now you can talk anywhere you can type. Dictation converts your words into text. It uses the built-in microphone on your Mac, so there’s no need to set anything up — just start speaking instead of typing. When you say “comma” or “exclamation point,” Dictation punctuates for you. The more you use Dictation, the smarter it gets. It learns voice characteristics. And it recognizes people from your contacts so it enters names accurately. Dictation supports English (U.S., UK, and Australia), French, German, and Japanese."
