Mountain Lion Dictation

Are you getting the AssistantServices.framework bouncing in your dashboard when trying to use dictation in OS X Mountain Lion? This simple fix will get the framework to stop bouncing and for you to see the cool dictation box popup properly.

Edit :  

sudo vi /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AssistantServices.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Info.plist

Insert the following between row 4 and 5 (right after <dict>)  : 

<key>NSUIElement</key>
<string>1</string>

Save the file down and you’re all set; double click your fn button and dictate away.
