  1. Richard,
    Another free dictating software is Voice typing in Google docs which is part of Google Drive.

    Works on any computer using a Google Chrome browser. It has all the bells and whistles like full stop comma question mark and the like and you can edit what you’ve written. I used it to write this, and cut and pasted it, here
