The Real-time Voice Recognition feature is most similar to using a USB microphone with Dragon NaturallySpeaking’s DragonPad. It features a text-based window in which a user can dictate and see their audio being transcribed while they speak. The window features playback controls, text editing facilities and a tool bar to save and export the dictation.
