Did you know Windows has had Speech Recognition built-in since Windows Vista? This is more than just a way to type by speaking aloud — you can use it to control applications and navigate the desktop with your voice.

I liked this feature a lot, but after Siri and Google's voice search, nothing but Jarvis can do it for me.

My mother gave up on Dragon, saying it was too difficult. This seems like it might be easier.
Do you think so?

It's worth noting that (on Win7, at least) users can't access Speech Recognition by going through the Control Panel route; they'll only get an "unexpected error" by going CP>Ease of Access>Use the Computer without a Mouse or Keyboard>Use Speech Recognition. The right way to access SR (on W7, at least) is to go through All Programs>Accessories>Ease of Access>Windows Speech Recognition.
