have been very happy with it recently and not needed/used additional

> Hello Everyone,




> I have a student who needs to use voice recognition on the Macintosh for

> both typing and mouse commands. It has been a few years since I have

> for Macintosh. I think the current best option would be to use the build

> tutorials for learning to use the voice command features on the Mac? I

> remember this being somewhat confusing, when I looked at it, since there

> was a separate utility for commands and a Siri for voice.




> Thanks,
