    Default Dragon!

    I'm breaking in my dragon speech recognition system. I like it a lot, but I still have a lot to figure out about using it. Like all those punctiation marks. I think there's automatic commas and periods, but I think I have to say all the rest.
    Kind of funny, I got a call while I was working and forgot to put the mic to sleep. I did take the head set off, though, so I didn't think it would hear me. It did. It typed my whole conversation with my kid.
    That's kind of inspiring, though. That means I don't have to be sitting here with the headset on.
    Pretty cool. I can be writing and sewing tabi at the same time. Or painting. I like it.

    Anybody else got this thing?

    I got this as a Christmas gift and have yet to install it. Looking forward to seeing what you think of it Lepp.

    My thoughts on Dragon... I used version 11.5 for a few things, and it helped for those things, but I hated it. I reinstalled the blasted thing half a dozen times last year because it kept crashing to desktop and corrupting my savestates, and even the backup saves couldn't restore it. Which meant that I had to re-train it half a dozen times.

    Finally, I said Screw it and pirated version 10 (several versions old), and it not only lets me add or remove any word or phrase I want (the new versions won't), but runs much faster. And, while it has crashed a few times, it hasn't yet corrupted my saved data.

    Oh, and Dragon can conflict with Windows' CTFMON, as well.

    I can already tell you I love it. It hasn't crashed on me (knock wood) and it does let me add whatever words and phrases I want. It's kind of weird to have to say punctuation (comma) but otherwise, I have no complaints. I say "save document" and it does. I do go behind it after a few paragraphs and save manually, just in case. But so far, it hasn't done anything twitchy.
    Then again, the only thing I use it for, the only reason I got it, is to type in my Word document (my book) while I speak. I don't use it for email or anything else.
    Well, I did post to FB with it once. Worked fine.
    I just wanted to free up my hands so I can do two things at once, and it does exactly that.
    So far, so good.

    Maybe you can teach it the punctuation like this man uses?
