Just read what I posted and there are a few errors. Some simple editing and this is a solid post. Check out the app, dragon dictation.

If I remember correctly, you can speak your punctuation.
To get this:
That was killer, grandpa
you'd say "that was killer comma grandpa"
Otherwise, you'll end up with:
That was killer grandpa
...which is totally different.

^ Thanks for the tip, TC. I will try adding punctuation.

I find that the dictation (whether Dragon or the native dictation on Mac/iPhone) works very well if you do one sentence at a time and then check it for stuff like punctuation, etc.
Doing paragraphs (like Greg's post above) usually end up with more errors or a stream-of-consciousness run of words without breaks, making it very difficult for the reader to parse.
