is simon a good voice recognition program for ubuntu?  i get tired of typing with my left index finger...  EE said a virtual machine is a good choice.  i like the cost of ubuntu but windows has good games. i heard games are good for my psychology though i'm pretty upbeat. i think i need help typing though.

Hi,

Dictation has improved considerably on Windows 10 and whilst not quite as polished as Dragon, it's a very good alternative if cost is a consideration.

The same is true of dictation in Mac OS.

cost isn't a really big thing but i squeeze a penny pretty hard. will 10 work on my machine?  the land  of the free pulls pretty hard.

Even Windows 7 has dictation in-built:

I'd suggest giving it a go and see how you get on - if it meets your requirements then great, if not, you'd need to look at open-source or 3rd party products.
