OS X 10.8 comes with Dictation. However, it does not work well in a multilingual environment because it can only set one language. Then OS X 10.9 comes out with the support of multiple dictation languages, but you still cannot switch between different languages on keyboard easily.

Dictation Language goes with Input Method Language
It is simple. The small application just watches for changes of input methods then switches the dictation languages on the fly.
- Enable OS X Dictaton in System Preferences.
- Install this application and make it open at login.
- Set the accents that you prefer.
- Done! The dictation language is going with your input method now.
