I just bought the latest Palm version of Dragon naturally speaking. I’m going to try to compose this blog post with just the software. I am not correcting any errors. For instance, the word Palm should have been the word home so it’s not perfect. Eventually, I hope for it to type my punctuation, at least in part, all on its own. Right now I have to say the words to get punctuation. I wonder if I can get it to type the word.. I guess not.

All in all, it doesn’t seem to be too bad. It’s kind of neat. I’m sure I’ll have to do some correcting, but I hope to do some writing with this. It keeps trying to make words out of my breathing. I suspect that’s related to the microphone or my positioning of it. I’ll figure it out. Or maybe I should stop breathing altogether.

If you have experience with Dragon voice recognition software and you have some tips, post them here. I really like how I can undo things. Oh look, it types the word quote undo. HMM… I’ll have to figure out how to do”. Scratch that, I guess I’ve got it now. Looks like the learning curve on this one is going to be a lot of fun.

Full disclosure, I dictated this in Word first and copied it into this blog post. This is really the first thing I’ve done with it. I suspect some corrections will be easier to do by hand, while speaking others will be just fine. Before I go, let me try something just for fun:

 

& plus + — – –-?\Parentheses ()**pound #act@!! Exclamation free the re-three (ah, there’s the three) number three 3 that did it = words = $% ^’ Sam; 🙂 oh suite, that worked. Okay enough of that. Watch for the Dragon tag on my posts to see how this goes.

    Hmm, not sure what happened with the repetition in the end.
