I work with people who have ALS that often try to use speech recognition as an interim acess solution.  DPI is great in the Windows o/s.  Some are MAC users, and I wonder if hands-free control is a viable option at all.

Yes, although I'll sing the praises of Dragon's, it's definitely not a beginner's program. The free options (i.e. iOS dictation, Siri, Cortana, and Google Docs) will still allow you to do whatever you want, but you will just have to switch between them a little more. ??

If your Mac users need to be hands-free, they will simply not be able to do this on a Mac. They will need to adjust to Windows and work with Dragon and KnowBrainer (which is free to those with permanent physical disabilities). Attempting to achieve these results on a Mac will simply be an act of frustration.
