OS X Mountain Lion may have come with its own Siri dictation feature, but it’s not perfect and other companies are exploiting its imperfections by offering better software for the Mac. A competing software called Dragon Dictation by Nuance is also an application capable of understanding your voice and putting it into text on your screen. Nuance has, just today, announced Dragon Dictation 3, which is the newest version of the application.

The downside to the application is of course, the price. New users can pre-order Dragon Dictate 3 for the heft price tag of $199.99 and existing users can upgrade for the still-hefty price of $149.99. Comparatively, Siri Dictation ships with every $19.99 purchase of OS X Mountain Lion and gets close to the same job done even though it lacks many features. Dragon Dictation 3 will be officially available on September 13 of this year.
