Stacy et al in Athenland,

I personally use it the one with Dragon and several of our students use
similar ones for class note transcriptions. One student has used a
stand-alone speech-to-text digital recorder (panasonic, I think) which
works extremely well for his needs. There is some editing involved in
both cases, but with the new Version 9 of Dragon the headache factor has
been much reduced! Our student who uses the panasonic (it's RRUS360
model) has raved over the practicality & usability of it. You can listen
to it as an audio file and with the software installed on your PC, the
recorder hooks up via a USB connection and the transcription is pretty
automatic. Some editing would be necessary, but with a copy of the notes
from class, it's not that hard to correct.

Hope this is helpful.
