Happy New Year!
My favorite Star Trek is IV - The Voyage Home. In it there’s a scene where Scotty tries to talk to the computer, which of course was impossible in 1986.
I love this program! Put on the microphone, run through the set up, and you are ready to roll.
What does Dragon do?
“Dictate documents, send email and instant messages, search and surf the Web, and more -- using just your voice. Dragon adapts to your voice and the words you use. You can even personalize Dragon with your own word lists of acronyms, proper names and other unique phrases.”
Nuance and Staples, but there are many different packages. There is even an app in iTunes.
Now Scotty can talk to the computer!
Have you ever tried the Dragon software?
It sounds Marvellous, will see if I can get it at Staples here in the UK.
In answer to your question how many times have I been to a Daniel concert well being a follower (not groupie) over 13 years I have lost count. Next time will be in my home town in April, as he is cutting down on touring that will be it for this year.
Happy New Year to you.
Crap, I need one of those!
This sounds so cool, Diane. I will definitely check it out. Glad you are inspired to write again. Woo Hoo!
I want one of them you are too nice.
I've looked at Dragon but couldn't visualize writing that way. Maybe I should re-think that.
I have not but can see how useful it could be. I'll check out the app and see if it works for an iPad. Have a happy and most successful New Year!
That's my favorite Star Trek movie too! I remember thinking it was really funny as a kid. I recently rented it because my husband had never seen it, and it is just as good now as it was then!
My mom was talking to me about Dragon the other day. It sounds cool!
What a great gift, Diane.
I used one in college when I had to have carpal tunnel surgery. It took a bit to get the program used to me and the way I spoke. It was the older version. This one sounds wonderful.
The Scotty scene was one of my favorites too.

I've heard of these types of programs and can see where they might be useful. I don't know how well it would work for me as far as my actual writing but I guess I could get use to it. You'll have to give updates on how you do with it and how one can use it most effectively.

Nice gift, Diane! The software I support for work used to use Dragon Naturally. Currently I'm still learning how to do text-talking on my smart-phone. Maybe when I master that I will upgrade to Dragon Naturally!
I haven't tried it but it sounds really cool!
That is some software for sure.
Have a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
Sounds like a great program. I'll check it out.
So far I am really loving this program! Edited another three chapters last night. So much fun.
I've used the program at school to teach the kids how to use it. Every year there are several students who find life so much easier if they use it. Great program :)
We're catching up to STAR TREK. Can transporters be far behind? LOL. If only -- it would make my work as a rare blood courier so much easier -- and safer!! Thanks for following my blog. I hope you enjoy THE LEGEND OF VICTOR STANDISH, Roland
That sounds really cool. The price sounds reasonable but I wouldn't put it on my old computer.
I've heard of the the Dragon software, but have never tried it. I think you're the first person who's tried it that I know.
I was just thinking about something like this...I'm getting carpal tunnel syndrome in one of my arms and this sounds like just the key!
OMG! That is so cool. I need me one of those.
My gosh, you're just getting so techy. Does it make lots to typos in your e-mails? Oh, well. So do I. (-:
I've heard of this but haven't used it. It sounds great! Thanks for the info. :)
I also love the Scotty scene..."a keyboard, how quaint". :)
I've heard Dragon is pretty good. I tried some voice recognition stuff a few years ago and it still wasn't quite where it needed to be. Glad to hear that this one is working for you. :)
Now that would be nice.
I have the iPhone and iPad apps. LOVE IT!!!!! :)
It sounds awesome! There are definitely times when my fingers can't type fast enough to keep up with my thoughts so it would be nice to just say everything out loud and have it typed for me. :)
I've been wanting this forever, but I've heard mixed results. How long was your learning curve? Did it seem to understand you easily?
I'll be interested to hearing more about it.
Your training period sounded relatively short. I worry about my New Zealand accent. Voice recognition things don't tend to like me!
Well heavens to Betsy, I have to have this one! I would write more too if I only had to talk. :)
Sorry I'm late but I'm SO glad I made it. Thanks for posting about Dragon. :)
