There is a free version built-in to Windows Vista, 7 and 8, which can be found in the Ease of Access Centre. The main commercial program is Dragon NaturallySpeaking for use on PCs. There is an entirely different program for use on Apple computers, despite the similarity in name, called Dragon Dictate. There are free app versions of Dragon, called Dragon Dictation for use on tablets and smart phones. iPads (3 or later) now have built-in speech recognition.
