Windows has had built-in dictation since Windows XP...and it hasn't been updated since Windows XP. Windows voice recognition is more focused on system control than on dictating prose. myEcho works with Siri to give you accurate and fluid prose dictation. Windows built-in dictation uses older technology that isn't improving, while myEcho uses the cloud-based dictation built into your iPhone. As your iPhone improves, myEcho improves. You can also use your existing Bluetooth headsets or bud microphones to dictate from your phone.
