The real question is: “So when can I start dictating cases on my phone?” Basically as a joke, I’ve tried dictating a case or two using Android’s built in voice recognition, with laughable results. With Dragon, however, you get some really solid architecture and a history of exceptional accuracy (at least in my opinion, on the desktop versions). So, maybe companies like VoiceBrook should get on this ASAP so that if I’m not at my computer, I can still get out a coherent dictation on-the-go. Necessary? Absolutely not. Cool? Absolutely.
