About two years ago I bought Dragon Dictation. Spent roughly an hour to an hour and a half setting it up. It was pretty accurate after the time spent training. I was not thrilled that I had to speak punctuation. And then it was, well, bitchy, when it need the latest update, etc. And it was not inexpensive, to say the least.
With the growth of the Chrome Store and the Apple App Store, other apps, free and way less expensive are available. I like the Chrome apps because they make all files available through my gmail account. And for recording scenes quickly while making dinner or folding laundry (as I sadly have to do these jobs in my home for the mini humans who live with me), a free app that does a great job is perfect.
Try VoiceNote II for full editing options within the app. You can choose your language and even dialect of that language. Add to the dictionary to teach the app words it doesn't accurately recognize, that you regularly use. And it can run offline, too!
For simple and fast voice notes, use Dictation io app from the Chrome store. Not fancy, not difficult. Just a voice note to save those brilliant flashes of creativity that we all get at the least convenient moments!
Try one or both!
