   Not really related to Fedora itself... but if you really like Dragon, it
apparently works through Wine.  There are apparently some issues with it
under Wine but you could certainly give that a try.  I don't think any of
the Linux speech packages are anywhere close to what Dragon can do.
However, that's a good opportunity to help your favourite package out.
