Wondering about the current state of more-or-less free VOICE RECOGNITION software and websites. Anywhere you can upload an MP3 to get a transcription?

Since this AskMeFi post
was written, there has been two years worth of progress in iPhone development, SIRI, Android development, Google Voice (Grand Central) accounts, Windows 7, Mac OS Mountain Lion API, etcetera.
What I would really like to do is upload an MP3 of spoken-word audio and get a good-enough transcription. I could call my own Google Voice phone number and leave myself voicemail messages in three-minute increments, but that seems quite labor-intensive.
Probably I should just buy the cheap Dragon Dictate NaturallySpeaking Basic retail box for $40, but I thought I would ask here about my options for getting some audio transcribed.
