Voice recording/transcribing with iPod?

I'd like to use my 4G for recording voice memos, letters, etc. The Belkin mic seems good, but will any mic work?

Does anyone know if voice recognition/transcription software like Dragon can be used with this setup (to convert voice files to text on the pc)?

You need to use the Belkin mic as it contains special hardware that enables the recording mode on the iPod. Just plugging in an ordinary mic will do nothing.

As for the converting to text, I'm not sure! Does your software support the importing of audio files? If it does then you could probably get it to work. Or you could plug the output of your iPod into the mic input on your computer and play through the audio into the software, that would probably work.
