LOS ANGELES -- Speech-to-text programs have been around for a while, but there have not been many offerings for Mac users. MacSpeech Dictate is specifically made for Apple's ( AAPL) Mac and contains a hardware/software package. The software is based on the Dragon NaturallySpeaking voice recognition engine (a staple for PC speech-to-text users). The recognition is stellar, and its voice commands, that allow you to open programs and reply to emails, are enormous time-savers.Next up, there are a few of these coming to the market: Watch phones. Gadget Grrl says this watch phone, while somewhat bulky, has built-in Bluetooth and a touchscreen. With some other models, you have to use a small stylus in order to get it to work, so keeping track of the stylus becomes a problem. Now more about the MacSpeech.
