Tell Gmail what to do with the latest Dragon Dictate for Mac

Let’s face it: not everyone uses Nuance’s Dragon Dictate software to power a ridiculously automated dorm room, the less creative among us have had to get by using it to take notes or write term papers.

No matter what you do with it, however, you might appreciate that the latest Mac version of the app lets you use your mouth instead of your fingers to write emails and navigate your inbox – so long as you’re using Firefox or Safari to access Gmail. You can tell Mac’s word processor, Pages, what to do too.

Beyond that, Dictate will also transcribe single-speaker recordings either from a smartphone or digital voice recorder now (including .mp3 and .wav files), and, what’s more, it apparently boasts improved voice recognition accuracy.

The suite is $200 directly from the developer should you want to give your hands a rest, or perhaps you just really like hearing the sound of your own voice.
