Blown Away by NaturallySpeaking
Against my better judgment I bought Dragon NaturallySpeaking 9 from Amazon. Over the years I've tried lots of dictation software and have been uniformly disappointed. The new NaturallySpeaking says that it achieves a high level of accuracy out of the box without extensive user training. Many people say that "Gee, if you just invest the time in training, a few weeks or so," the voice accuracy a level which is very practical but I've never had that patience.
Since being able to work with dictation would be such an incredible boon to me as a writer I bought the latest version of NaturallySpeaking. I also wanted to show exactly what NaturallySpeaking gave for an out of box experience and so I recorded screencasts of my very initial dictation with NaturallySpeaking. You can judge for yourself.
Oh, and naturally, I dictated this blog entry.
