voice-recognition software

Fellow writers and computer users: Can you recommend voice-recognition software? For a number of reasons - including freedom, avoiding wrist & other pains, portability, and so on - I want to try writing without using a keyboard.

Do you use something that you would recommend? Because I plan to use this for fiction-writing, I don't care if it integrates well with spreadsheets, special codes, and so on, but it needs to be good at understanding my voice and making sentences magically appear on the computer as I talk to it. Accurate ones, ones that don't require a lot of correction via mouse and keyboard.

And if there's a demo version I can download to see what I think of it, that would be perfect.

Thank you!
Chris
