I haven't tried this one, but I've tried iListen. IMO, voice recognition isn't quite there yet. I discovered a much cheaper manual alternative: Transcriva by Bartas Technologies. It's only twenty bucks. :-D

It sucks - Poor assistant, no message really helpful in order to make any kind of troubleshooting, different instability on Panther. Save your money !!!

Update to my last comments:

For some reason the ViaVoice started working again in Panther - as it did in 10.2.8. Still no training available for untrained commands.

IListen also came out with an update for Panther since my last comments.

This product only works "correctly' with earlier versions of Jaguar, starts breaking down around 10.2.6 (no command training), and is almost unuseabe with Panther (no speakpad, correction window or command list). Its marketing and support have been outsourced to Scansoft. Its future remains publically unknown. No updates have been announced. Currently this product has all the trappings of an application at its end-of-life phase.

To make matters worse, I know of no other reliable voice recognition product that works well on the Mac or that is Panther (10.3) certified. I include IListen in this consideration.

IBM is seriously lagging on this product. This update is basically at patch so that it will work with Jaguar. The software itself hasn't been improved since version 1.0-two years ago, and is riddled with bugs. Get with the program, IBM!

Via Voice updater doesn't work at all with my OS 10.2.4 (IBM does say it works only with 10.2.2); although it appears to install fine, finder info says Via Voice is still v. 3.01. Hopefully IBM will get around to keeping Via Voice up to date for macs as it's basically a good program and much better than iListen - when it works.
