      mikojunky This is the most complete voice control program out of what's listed here. Not only does it handle dictation very well, but also lets you control the browser fully - click links, scroll etc. Also has specialized commands for certain sites like Gmail and Reddit and allows for custom shortcuts!

      No transcription, only works online and from a browser and what's more, it has to be Chrome. Doesn't compare. With Dragon you can write entire books and typing a 2,000 word piece is a done in a flash. Apples and oranges.

      Braina Pro can work out of the box for speech recognition unlike Dragon. Dictation to third party software and website works like a charm.
