Technology comes of age
For 30 years now, I have been a computer geek utilizing computers both at home and at work. I came across this image on Facebook today which shows you how to use the alternate key along with a numerical command to generate the various symbols.
Because I am such a computer geek I am now starting a new phase in my blogging starting today I will be using Dragon naturally speaking version 12.5. Everything you see here is dictated as I spoke it without correction. The program is doing an amazing job.
Are any of you using speech recognition software? If so, I would like to know your impressions of it. I just cannot believe that this stick Tatian is without errors. Well it finally made a mistake. It did not recognize the word dictation. That’s better.
I have some journals and/or diaries that I would like to put in my blogs. It would be very time-consuming and laborious to type them in manually; therefore, I would like to dictate or that is, read the diaries directly into Microsoft Word. That would be so much faster and easier.
There must be some professionals among you, such as doctors or lawyers, who are already using dictation software. Please comment below how you feel about voice recognition, and how accurate it is for you.
