OS X Mountain Lion has a useful new feature: Dictation. However, if you write a lot in different languages, switching between them is quite tedious, because the setting is buried in System Preferences.

DictationSwitcher is a little utility that sits in your Mac's menu bar and makes using Dictation even easier. Its main functions:

Quick language switch
Quickly switch between dictation languages, without the need of going through System Preferences.

Global Hot Key
Use the global hot key (set by you) to quickly switch between two predefined languages.

Turn Dictation on/off
Deactivate Dictation when you don't need it and activate it with a click.

Changes in Version 1.1.1:

- Added cycling option for the hotkey

Changes in Version 1.1:

- Support for the new languages added in 10.8.2
- Global hot key setting

DictationSwitcher is Developer ID signed and requires OS X 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion).
