I need some reliable voice-recognition software to use with an iPad, for an elderly relative who wants to dictate her emails.
Is it important to have a specific o/s on the iPad?
And suggestions for an App would be useful, unless the inbuilt software is sufficient.
Thank you.
As far as voice to text software goes, Dragon Dictation is the the best.
The aforementioned software can be found on the following page:

Thank you, Jason.

Does the Dragon app allow the user to dictate directly into an email? This particular elderly lady won't be capable of cut and paste or having to use a similar technique.

Hello Richard,
Yes, the Dragon Application allows for such.

I tried Dragon on an old iPad, and it worked fine, and I could email without a problem.

Many thanks, ***** ***** Jason
