Loving the Dragon!

Just got a copy of Dragon NaturallySpeaking Home, Version 11! I have to say, so far I am loving it! I am actually dictating this post! I think this software is going to be huge boon to my blogging. It honestly was not difficult at all to train the software. I think I dictated for it a grand total of about 4 minutes. I’ve already done some homework and I would say accuracy was at least 80% I’m thinking even better. I keep thinking about all the times I wake up in the middle of the night with some crazy ideas in my head and I try to write them down in a notebook I keep near my bed. Seriously how much more effort would it be to get up and walk to the computer and ramble for 20 minutes and actually be able to know what what I was thinking instead of trying to transcribe my crappy writing the next day.
I also experimented with using the mouse and window control commands. That has a bit of a learning curve, I think it works pretty well it’s just a matter of training myself what the vocal cues are. I found that using commands with in Microsoft Word worked fairly well, I was able to save my document and open a new one. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the product!
If you have the extra cash and you do a lot of word processing, blogging, just any kind of data entry I would seriously recommend this product. I absolutely hate typing but I love writing and this is going to just help me do so much more of that!
