USB Headset

A few weeks back, I ordered the USB head set because the stereo input jack on my laptop seem to have given up the ghost.  This made it impossible for me to use the window 7 speech recognition software.  Now I am using the USB headset to to blog.  I will be curious to see if I can correct student papers this way.

Weirdly enough , that USB headset was packaged with paperwork indicating that it was only be sold in the People's Republic of China.

Do you find the Windows 7 voice recognition software usable?

I tried it a long time ago and it didn't work well for me at all --- maybe I should give it another go?

Item quite as accurate as Dragon Naturally Speaking, but it is adequate and the Show Numbers facility makes it useful for applications that don't have built-in support.
