[Athen] portable DNS?

Susan et al,

Dragon Naturally Speaking has a speech-to-text option which includes a
portable recording device and Voice Tracer software. If Dragon is loaded
(wherever) and his voice profile is loaded or accessible, he can record
into the portable device and use any computer with DNS to transfer
files. It isn't the same as a portable dictation but it is close.

Would it work as a partial solution? I am not aware of any truly
portable voice recognition programs (such as Kurzweil and RW Gold have
for their mobile versions).
