    I searched 'Naturalreader' and what I found was a text to speech converter.

    I put off buying Dragon Naturally Speaking for 3 years, until I could not hold off anymore.

    IT'S FANTASTIC

    I know it's a little pricey, but my goodness it works so well. I wish I'd bought it 3 years ago. Last week I typed, well it typed, 26 x A4 pages of hand written text. I just read it out and away it went. It took me around 90 minutes to read it all. It would've taken me DAYS to type it.

    My suggestion, save up and buy it. You'll not regret it, no matter how long it takes to save the money.

    PP

    Oh all I had to do was spend around 45 minutes training it to understand me. Which was a lot quicker than my children took to understand me.

    If all you wan to do is type into MS Word, or a notepad like app, Check ebay for ViaVoice 8.0 Personal Edition. It works on 98se and XP( although not specified for XP). It originally cost about $30 and was discounted to $5 when I bought it. It works great. A real surprise.

    But it won't give commands to your computer or work in other apps than MS Word (97 and 2000) and a proprietary app that comes with VV.
    I hear ViaVoice 9 and 10 work well on XP, but cost more.

    I used to use L&H 5 Mobil Pro, but updates to 98se seemed to degrade it's performance and it never worked as well as I liked on XP.


    I also hear Dragon is good...but expensive.

    If you have or can get MS Office XP Pro cheap, it also has a VR app.
