12. Concept mapping with speech-to-text - MindManager 8

Earlier this week Citnexus launched VoxEnable to bring the power of voice recognition to concept mapping. Apparently it combines the MindManager 8 with Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 to provide total voice control. According to the blurb, users "can capture, organise, and communicate information without having to type it using a PC keyboard.” It goes on to say "Over 150 voice-enabled functions have been incorporated into this release and users can transcribe and create MindManager 8 visualisations which can be manipulated, scrolled, scaled, zoomed, printed and exported by voice. Text can be dictated directly into topics with formatting, editing and search capabilities."
