One of life's aggravations when you only have one working hand is typing. This is compounded when you used to be a adept touch typist as I used to be. One possible solution is Win 10 speech recognition, which I have tried and found not quite ready for use. Ant other suggestions as to what I might use?

Google Now, Siri and Cortana come to mind as Free but keep in mind you get what you pay for. Cortana is the Windows 10 virtual assistant. Not sure what my phone uses.

My PC is lacking in voice software. My phone is good.
On the phone I talk into email and then have to email my PC to put it into word.

A friend of mine swears by Dragon. I haven't used it personally and don't know how much it costs. But according to him it's worth it, whatever it costs.

I think for what it offers it is worth it. I looked it up and it starts at around $100, but it is more than a dictation software.
