Question Headset for typing?

Or whatever they are called. Was at the docs this evening and he was using a headset which he spoke into and his words came up in MS Word on his computer.

What exactly are they , where do I get them and is any additional software required?

Be handy for mother with her creepy arthritic hands.

thought you meant one of those with a stylus on a headband when you've got no arms/ are otherwise unable to use hands

We had Dragon in our office for a while. Think it's one of the better known ones but never used it myself.

Phwoarrrr! look at the bird on that site's hompage. I'd seriously give her a bit of dicktation, etc, etc, etc.....

Anyway, the looks exactly like the setup he was using. Is it just a CD in a box? Or do I need to buy the headset seperately?
