Nice demo, but I'm skeptical.
I've used Dragon NaturallySpeaking for over 10 years for dictation (not for navigating), and I am generally impressed with its accuracy. But where it stumbles, and stumbles badly, is in the correction mechanisms, especially in programs that do not adhere to specific standards. (It does more or less OK in Microsoft Word, but in third-party programs it can be absolutely miserable.) Dragon does not "remember where the cursor is" for more than the very last dictation in some programs. So you cannot go back very far in a paragraph and say "Select something-or-other" and have Dragon expect to find it.
Moreover in some programs when the correction is used, even though the right material is selected, the cursor seems to lose its place and replace the new text but not completely over the old text -- trust me, it makes a mash of things. When correction become such a hassle, ones enthusiasm for the program dies quickly.
Interestingly, one of the best programs to dictate in is WordPad. Dragon never seems to lose its place in that program.
Incidentally, I have dictated this in Dragon, and have only had to go back and make one correction.
What a great tool for disable people!
Im guessing it would work with media center?
