hi, does anyone know the name of the clever computer software that enables your pc to type what you speak? I believe it had a funny name like giraffe or something like that,, also, is it very expensive?

There is a piece of software called Dragon Naturally Speaking. There are various versions, ranging in price from about £20 to over £100. You could find a used version on eBay, or other auction website.

Are you using a PC, as I haven't seen a version of Dragon for a Mac.

I haven't any experience of the software but others here may.
