New speech recognition said to be 99% accurate

Be prepared, improvements are starting.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 has just been released and is said to be able to produce 160 words a minute and be up to 99% accurate, this compares to the test base of 40 words per minute with an accuracy of only 58%.

Not sure about the 40 words per minute part, but the accuracy of 58% sounds about right for the speech recognition I'm working with now. I'm all for advancements, but I'm hoping things stay at least a little messed up for the sake of my job.
