Default Speech to text

I own a copy of Dragon Natural speaking, which is a speech to text program. I was never thrilled with it because it was sort of slow, made a lot of mistakes. If I trained it well it improved. But then all of a sudden it would lose its training.

So I upgraded to Windows 10 which has speech to text and I was hoping it would work better, but same thing. I trained it a lot and it lost its training one day.

So after looking around awhile I found Speechnotes. It's surprisingly accurate, and it's easy to use. Except I wish I could turn off the automatic adding of periods when it thinks the sentence ends. And it's not perfect. But I'm using the free version and maybe the pay one is better.
