I find myself (trying) to use dictation on my Mac more and more. I'm finding the process hit and miss. One day it will dictate fine, the next I will be frustrated and just type whatever I'm doing. First off i'm using an old Cyber Acoustics desktop mic. You know those ones that were popular in the 1990's? 3.5mm connector and all. I find myself having to lean up in my seat to speak into it...really uncomfortable. Also, as I said before its a hit and miss process. I find Siri or dictation on my iPhone a flawless experience. I don't have to yell and I can have the phone in my lap and it picks up what I say perfectly. I've come here to ask what I can do to bring my desktop up to par. I know that Logitech makes a desktop mic that connects through USB and has excellent reviews. I worry though that in the end it is just a desktop mic like the current one I have. I have also looked into a USB mini desktop studio microphone. This seems like a beefier microphone, but I just don't know how it would work. Another question I have is would having two microphones be better? As I said before I find myself leaning up to speak into the mic. Would having two microphones pick up better so I wouldn't have to lean up?
