Whoopee, here I am up and running at long last!
my software arrived this morning, and I just got it up and running. As promised, I'm dictating directly without correction, to let you see how well or not it performs. I am giving it voice commands to delete certain Miss-heard words, which seems an instinctive and easy action to use. Capitals and punctuation, i.e., spacing, etc I'm sure I will get the hang of eventually, spacing generally tends to be included automatically, but then for no reason it'll join the odd word, and another together - but it's what did you love not enough for me to get my knickers in a knot over.
Ha ha, " did you love?" wasn't meant to be in their, I was responding to Sam, he interrupted me as I was dictating. I forgot to tell the microphone to go to sleep. It also does seem to get confused with the correct spelling of words such as their and their - sheesh, see what I mean? well, it's not a big problem, I'm sure I can fix it given time.
I'm just getting to know this thing, but I have to say so far so good, it seems to recognise my voice pretty well. Not sure about how to add punctuation, or how to put Capitals in yet, but I have a feeling it ain't going to be too bad.
It certainly beats the Windows 7 version of voice recognition, that thingthis drove me demented! No, I have to say I'm pretty impressed so far, it seems to recognise my voice fairly well, and isn't throwing too many hissy fits.
(Wow, I can't believe it recognised hissy fits..)
Eeeee, it didn't recognise this bit (Eeeee), I had to dictate it by spelling it out. It's easy to cancel something it lists-types. Ugh, spot the deliberate typo? No, that wasn't me. This dragon has a mind of its own, guess we are going to fall out now and then. Still, all said and done,I'm pretty thrilled the way things are going, and I don't really expect for it to type everything up in a format that I can readily publish without doing any proof-reading. No, the idea is simply for me to get things down in a hurry, and then to go back to it at my leisure fbutor correction.
So what you see here is my first efforts totally uncorrected and typed as I speak. Admittedly this should not have been an S at the "end of effort". And again, this should have read their. There should have been the last word on that sentence (sigh). yeah, it's far from perfect, but for the purpose that I want to use it, it seems fine. since I'm happy to go back and read and correct, as and when I might need to.
I'm telling you kids, this is the bees knees, works for me! Okay, this is shrinky signing over and out.
(Skipping over to hit the publish button, with a big wide cheesy grin on my face..)
