I have a still working Vista basic lappy which I use for a TV. It is crammed with lots of ancient programs that are common names these days and I have found out a Naturally Speaking 6 cd and wondered by chance is it better than the installed Speech Recognition? 

   This is probably a dum question since the NS 6 is 2002 and VB is 2006 but one cant help but wonder if such a renowned program could be faultless enough.

FWIW:  Not long ago, I did a little research on these sort of apps.


IIRC correctly..there is no "best" program because the program used/chosen...depends heavily on just what the user is trying to accomplish.


As for version 6 of Dragon...it's pretty outdated and I suspect it is inferior to any versions which are more recent, including the Win 7/Win 8 tools.


Google Links Possibly Useful


You may also want some Background Info On ConsumerSearch.com , since you will run across various opinions by that site.
