Do you really need this product. Some may find it a gimmick, but trust me the product is great.
This version comes with a bluetooth wireless headset, which in itself is a great headset and accurate.
One of the major highlights to the command set of version 10 is the ability to work with search engines/sites, such as Google, Wikipedia etc. Bing able to say "Search the Web for Gentle Giant" or "Search maps for Thai restaurants in London open's your web browser and run your default search or map engine with the details you've spoken. This is now bridging the gap between interaction with computers.
The down side I guess is the way it still looks, it still has that feel of dated fonts etc.
I would reccommend spending the time to teach the software, which can take 15-20minutes. I spent the time and after that it seemed to immediately pickup my sentences. In Version 10 idiosyncrasies are more accurate compared to the last version or the IBM version.
Another nice touch is the ability for the software to add axtra words when it isn't sure what you said.
Overall, a great software. Also, if you already have a headset wired or wireless then your best option is to purchase just the software.
Excellent tool and bridging the gap between man and computer inteaction.
