About a week ago, a friend was telling me about a new dictation program for the Mac that is supposed to be the best on the market. So being the daring individual that I am, I ordered it. I’ve been trying it out for the last several days and have had problems. What else is new? I’ve been on the phone with tech support, and they’ve been pretty good at getting me to follow instructions. As a result, I’ve been using the dictation for the past few days, and I’m getting fairly good at it.
All of the text on this page has been written in dictation, and I must admit it’s quicker than my one-handed typing. Every now and then the program does something peculiar, and I go back and fix it on the keyboard. Now before I posted this, I proofread it, but you may find an interesting word here or there and you can tell me about it if you like.
At any rate, it’s a fascinating experience. I’ll try to keep you up-to-date.
