And since I presume it doesn't "learn" how one speaks, guess it would involve my having to alter things to suit it, rather than the other way around, which is presumably (again!) what Dragon will allow for...

I haven't used it much; I have too many verbal ticks to make dictation an efficient way to operate my computer vs. my decades of keyboarding. Also of note, the above quote is about enhanced dictation, which comes with Mavericks only (so far) and requires a download. More info at the link above.
