The PowerMic 4 really works well for Dragon speech recognition. I had used a cheap mic previously that gave me results that were far from accurate and finally decided to invest in the PowerMic 4 that's created specifically for it. I'm so glad I did. I probably would have given up on speech recognition altogether otherwise, but I'm glad I've found a solution that actually makes speech-to-text work. I also purchased this with the magnetic holder also sold on this site and it works great for keeping the mic up and off the desk. I'd definitely recommend the combo for anyone investing in this mic.
