I am writing this with the new app Dragon Dictate for Macintosh. This is going surprisingly well.
My long-term readers will be aware that I have had many problems in this area. And there are still a few. For example, when I wrote “long-term readers”, Dragon Dictate wrote "long-term weakness”. Pretty funny, I think. Of course I have some training to do and yet, but already I can correct most of the mistakes with speech instead of using the keyboard. This is definitely a step up.
I tried first with a couple of different headset,s but none of them worked. I heard the sound recorded from the first one, and it sounded like I was speaking from under 2 I'm doints [20 blankets]. I cannot believe how bad that sound was, and I can't blame the program for not being able to work with it.
I am now using the blue Snowball, ambiguously microphone. That should have bene [been] a big USB microphone.
There are also some issues wiht some of Ms. tidings, I mean but missed five things, I mean I'm Ms. tidings of, I mean some misprints. And the computer little confusing. I meant it can be a little confusing.
So I guess instead of sayign “surprisingly well”, I should say “reasonably well”. And I don't know wh go to end of document areu can't spell saying unto symptom to a
I guess I will try to dictate into
Dragon Dictate's own notepad
Perhaps Dragon Dictate's own notepad is more precise. I'm not sure why this should be, but it might be, so I'm trying it.
An issue issue is that I can't even sigh or make any other noises without Dragon Dictate typing in some kind of word.
But I think it's going better than the multiple of different machines apps and solutions and microphones I have tried in the past.
If I get it going really well, you will hear about it.
Update 28 Oct:
Well, it did not continue to go so well for me as it did right in the beginning. It still bogs down at a level where I have to stop and do corrections all the time. Sigh.
