Default Voice activated software

Not sure where to post this question - please advise. I have Windows XP
and a recent disability (hand/finger numbness). I'd like to find good
voice activated software that wouldn't "cost an arm and a leg".

I think she wants voice _in_put (like Dragon Dictate - probably quite
good by now, and probably not cheap either), not output.

Is it in both hands/arms, or just one? Many years ago I was getting bad
pins and needles in my wrist, and a doctor identified it as carpal
tunnel syndrome, and just suggested I use the mouse in the other hand. I
was sceptical, but after a few months, it worked.

Also you might look at the various alternative keyboard layouts: I think
one called something like "Dvorak" is specifically designed for
limited-use (possibly one-handed?) users.

With apologies if your condition is making use of either hand difficult
and/or painful. (My - limited - actual _experience_ is with speech [and
Braille] _out_put, rather than disabled _in_put.)

Dragon Naturally Speaking is probably the best for you. Another option is to buy a different type of mouse if you can still use your hand. There are some on the market for people that suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, where your hand is in a different position than it is with a standard mouse. After using a standard mouse at the company that I work at, I had to switch. Just do an online search (or have a friend do it for you) and see what's out there.
