Speech to text ware

I listen to and record a weekly 2 hour radio show.

I use Cok MP3 Recorder to record the broadcast. Cok MP3 Recorder creates an MP3 file containing the date of recording.

I spend about 6-7 hours a week transcribing the broadcast, by taking word for word notes of it. Because it takes so long for me to transcribe the parts of the broadcast that I want, its driving me and my mississ mad.

I would like be able to install a program that will convert the MP3 file, or the live radio broadcast into text. It does not have to be perfect because I can fix it up later.

Is there any suitable speech-to-text program for doing this?

I have watched quite a few tutorials on how to use google docs and other on-line programs to convert speech into text but I can never get them to
work so I am now looking for a windows program that will do the job.

my computer specs are:

ASRock Z68 Pro3-M
Operating System - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
Processor - Intel® Pentium® CPU G840 @ 2.80GHz
Chipset - Intel® 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family
Graphics - Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
Audio - ASUS Xonar Essence STX Audio Device
• Driver Provider ASUSTeK
• Driver Version
• Driver Date 3/10/2011

• Device Id PCIVEN_13F6&DEV_8788&SUBSYS_835C1043&REV_005&328E2617&0&2000E1
Networking and I/O
Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
Memory - 8 GB
Storage - WDC WD10EZEX-60ZF5A0 ATA Device

All suggestions valued, thank you.

Dragon is supposed to be pretty good, and reasonably priced from what I saw.

Here's a link to what I read about reviews.

It looks like Dragon Naturally Speaking Professional version supports transcribing Podcasts.

One feature listed for the Pro version:
Transcribe any single speaker’s voice into text from pre-recorded audio files or from podcasts.

It's $300.00. But it looks like it meets your requirements.

As has been said, Dragon is very good ... but ... you need to train it first.

Training for your voice is easy, training for someone else's voice will be a lot harder.

Purchase dragon dictaphone edition.
You might be able to purchase the software without the dictaphone.

Transcribes mp3’s to text natively.
