[OS X TeX] Dragon Dictate and Tex

While I can't speak for the new Dragon Dictate, I have used its direct predecessor (I bought it back in early Sept.), MacSpeech Dictate.  It works well in terms of dictating directly into TexShop.  On the fly corrections, training by voice and spelling all work without having to leave TexShop.  Every now and then it gets confused as to the text in the document, but a restart of Dictate fixes that quickly.  I set up macros for common bits of notation that I use in my writing and that saved a few trips to the keyboard.

Hope that helps,
