Windows 8.1 Google Voice Typing Software?

I have gotten so used to using Google Voice on all my Android devices that my typing skills have really gone out the wind ow.

Is there a way with a Windows 8.1laptop to use Google Voice or is there another solution other than Dragon or other paid softwares or is that the best way to go?

And soon, with the upcoming free windows 10 upgrade, you might want to use Cortana (built-into windows 10). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Cortana - I used it on a phone and recognition was remarkable.

McKnife, that sounds like it might work and be worth waiting for. I thought Google Chrome had an add on for voice recognition but I have yet to find it.

I would have to search myself.
Cortana did not have to learn but instantly understood much more than dragon which I used some time before.

McKnife that says a whole lot as I also used Dragon and currently Google Voice which is even better so I am looking forward to Cortana.

I try to avoid Nuance since the destroyed one of the best software applications ever IMHO... Paperport..
