#1: oral output for homework/exams. Basically this is just dictation (via tape recorder).

[Since 2002, my University has allowed students to use Laptops/keyboards in exams; although the idiot disability lady forgot to tell me during my annual service signup... thanks witch :X]

#2: Dragon NS. I have found this difficult to use when i play back my mini tape recorder into the mike, though.

#3: Another tool that is underrated is the lowly rubber Pencil Grip.

I like dictation b/c i can talk at 150 wpm, but can only write at 20 wpm, or type at 35 wpm. ThEREFORE, the Memory problems of ADD go to work and i lose my amazing thoughts for Essay Questions, or can't remember the ends of long written answers during exams, etc.!!

Using a pencil/pen means that my words and ideas will -=* bottleneck*=- at my hand.

Try using a cord like this one http://www.sparco.com/cgi-bin/wfind2?spn=A590195. It will allow you to plug one end into the headphone jack of your recorder and the other end into the computer's microphone jack. When you press play you may not hear anything but the computer will get a much better signal this way than how you were doing try to record.

Its only about 3 bucks, and you can probably find it at your local Radio Shack. If it doesn't work you won't be out too much money, but it should work much better than what you're doing now.
