OS X Mountain Lion Dictation – For novelists?

I’m speaking to you via OS X Mountain Lion dictation.
It took three attempts to have dictation correctly identify “mountain lion”, but that has been the only issue so far.
This is one of the best features and dictation programs that I have come across in recent years.
I may be wrong but I believe it is using similar technology to Siri, and the secret is to talk clearly in a quiet room.
To access dictation simply depress the fn key twice in quick succession.
And there you have it an almost perfect dictation program out of the box without any training whatsoever.
Please be mindful that what you say is sent to Apple so that it can better identify voices.
Will this revolutionise the way that I write novels, perhaps so, but then I do like the old-fashioned typing approach.
Mountain Lion is now available in the Mac App Store.
