A good idea but badly produced. There are times when it is impossible to understand the word the voice says. So you waste time typing what you thought it said.

Using your own dictionary isn't a great idea, should use the Mac's built in one. The word tormentor is incorrect. It's not 'tormenter'.

It would probably be a good idea to rename this, because of the trademark issue. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but I'm just saying Texas Instruments' lawyers probably will be, if they get ahold of you.

This is a great app, although the accent is a little hard to understand sometimes. I thought this was a joke when I downloaded it, the third word it gave me to spell was 'Boner'.

Its great that the developer has made this.
Shows some very odd behaviour of the speech engine, eg arc sounds like urg.
The default is an odd selection of words aaa, jim, etc that could do with being restricted to those in common usage that can be pronounced correctly!
Still, the word list is easily loaded/saved so I'll have a go at customising it myself.

Agree with your comments. The default word list has unusual words, acronyms, and even people's names. You can tailor the list as you wish, deleting words you do not want to use and adding new words. When you close the window, the list is saved for the next session.
