We have been using Voice Control since it was released in beta, about 6 months ago, on our iPhone and iPad. While it doesn't compare to Dragon, considering that it's free, it's actually impressive. Because we are a Dragon reseller, we get the group version of Dragon Anywhere at no cost but like Voice Control a little more and recommend it to anyone with an iPad/iPhone. However, Apple could have made it considerably easier to turn on. Many iPhone users probably don't even realize they have it. In our opinion, this feature is more important than anything on an android system. If you are unfamiliar with the process click Settings/Accessibility/Voice Control/ (click the slider to turn it on) and additionally click the slider on Show Hints. Memorize these steps because for unknown reasons, your iPhone may turn it off automatically in a few days. We experienced the same problem in beta.

Once you've activated voice control you can turn it on by saying "Hey Siri, turn on voice control". I believe you can also add a toggle to control center through the Settings panel.

After many years of waiting, the Mac has *potential* to become a viable platform for speech recognition. It has decent quality and the ability to add words and commands. That said, these are my concerns:

* features
	* doesn't work in Thunderbird, Sublime Text, and other non-Apple/MS
	  apps
	* can only import one word at a time
	* no spell mode when dictating - perhaps use VirtualKeyboard?
	* no way to use spelling when correcting
* comnands
	* working
		* replace with
		* captialize
		* capitalize that
	* missing
		* no space
		* resume with

BTW: I don't know why the list above doesn't work, I can see it in the editor.
