Does anybody out there have a detailed review of, or had significant experience with macOS Catalina dictation and voice control?  From their demonstrations it looks like they made some significant headway especially with things like show numbers and show grid. I also read somewhere that they replaced their dictation engine with whatever was powering Siri at least for US English? I'm curious if anyone has had first-hand experience with this?

I have tried it but ultimately chose to use Dragon Professional on Parallels instead. The voice control works well. But with regard to the dictation, there is very limited ability to set a custom dictionary and there is no ability to edit except manually through the keyboard - so it works for short phrases or text messages but does not work well for serious document production via dictation.
