WriteMonkey should have no such problem, even on Windows 8, as it uses the latest version of the .NET framework. I’ve used it in my Win7 64bit laptop with no problem.

I don’t know if you’d be able to use the add-ons in the Writespace environment. Unfortunately I also have Word 2010 so cannot test it anymore.

Dragon dictation might work in WriteMonkey and such. For Endnote, I had the impression that there is a special URL for each reference, which one can integrate in plain text files and have them be updated by the relevant info through the Word Endnote add-on, but I may be confused with another bibliographic tool (I seem to have done this mistake before actually).

There is always the possibility of selecting a text and using Text Editor Anywhere to zap you to your favourite plain text environment and back again, but you’d be losing any existing formatting along the way.
