moderated Re: jaws working with dictation software?

To add to what Dean has written you can also buy a program from Brian Hartgen called J-say. J-say and J-Dictate are both voice dictation programs that allow you to have an accessible interface with Dragon when using JAWS. The difference is that J-say not only allows for voice dictation but you can also completely control your computer, such as opening programs, navigating menus and documents, etc. J-say is great for someone needing total hands-free control of the computer. J-dictate, from what I understand, is just for dictation. It's ideal for people who can control the computer with their hands but who just may want to use their voice to enter text as opposed to, or in addition to, the keyboard.
I have not used either of these programs and so I can't offer any feedback from personal experience. However, I have used his Leasey program which is, essentially, an addon to the JAWS screen reader which provides additional functionality and features not already in JAWS. If J-say and J-dictate are of equal quality to Leasey then I can only conclude they are nothing short of amazing as that is how I feel about Leasey. His software is totally dependent on JAWS. This means that if you are not running JAWS or if you're using a different screen reader his software won't function.
