The 7 Minute Post...
DragonDictate for Mac and NaturallySpeaking for PC are two speech-to-text applications that have been around for quite some time. Long been a techie, I tried out the earlier versions of NaturallySpeaking in an attempt to expedite my report writing and take the business to another level. Needless to say, I was rather disenfranchised with the product as it seemed to make more errors than anything else.
I finally ditched the product after numerous hours of training and frustration. On a side note though, if you were looking for a good laugh, it was a pretty cheap investment and it would provide hours of fun.
After reading several reviews on the newer version, I decided to give it a whirl once again. So far, so good. I have been quite impressed at the speed and accuracy of the newer version. In fact, I am typing this entire blog and all of my comments today using DragonDictate for Mac.
On a side note, it is taken me all of 3 minutes to ( type ) this out using the speech recognition application with minimal keyboard input. Perfect? No! But for those who are keyboard challenged; looking for a way to expedite writing their posts; "type” with better accuracy with less spelling errors; or just like fooling around with technology, may find this to be the cat's meow.
So who says that you need to spend hours laboriously pecking at the keyboard to write a blog and formulate your thoughts to paper? I didn't, and neither do you…
