Howdy everyone! This blog post is an experiment before we leave my wife’s aunt’s house. I wanted to experiment with my new Dragon NaturallySpeaking software. This blog post is that experiment! I am writing it completely using my voice. It is my hope that using the software will help me to churn out more articles, as well as scripts, in quicker amounts of time. I was able to play with this software a little bit yesterday and the time that I spent seems to have been profitable as it does seem to be doing a better job of recognizing my voice than it was doing yesterday. I have had to go back and change a few words and punctuation marks (which I was able to do using the voice commands), but overall, the vast majority of this paragraph has been entered purely through my dictation.
I’m really not certain whether or not this will be able to help me be more productive, but it is something that I’ve wanted to try for a long time and I’m looking forward to giving it a shot. In particular, it is my hope that this will help me to produce scripts in a quicker amount of time. The reason my hopes are higher for scripts is because I try to write the way I speak when I create them and if my computer will actually take dictation and do so successfully without the need for many edits it seems to me that would be a great help!
I hope to write another post soon about my trip to Charlotte. As usual it was a wonderful trip, and I’m so appreciative of the fantastic staff that we have there. God has assembled a remarkable team to do His work — and I’m appreciative, as well, that I have the opportunity to work with them.
Gotta go! Hope to post again soon…
