Yeah. Hiccups like this is why I haven't made a serious attempt to use dictation. I've puttered around with it, but for now I'll stick to the keyboard.

So, Microsoft Word on Mac is a viable and usable dictation platform? Would you recommend it?

The reason I ask is that Youngest Daughter is about to start a Uni degree course and wants to use dictation software to help overcome some of her Autism Spectrum issues when drafting / writing assignments - typing speed not fast enough to keep up with brain's train of thought etc. She'd be doing this on a Macbook Air.

May I ask what your specific setup is? And whether you're happy enough with Word's dictation performance to recommend it to others?
