To give my wrists an occasional break from the keyboard, sometimes I use speech recognition software — Dragon Dictation.

It’s pretty easy to use. I put on a bluetooth headset with a mic, I talk, and it types.

If I say “The presentation is done comma and I look forward to meeting with you on Friday exclamation point“, Dragon types “The presentation is done, and I look forward to meeting with you on Friday!”

It’s surprisingly accurate… most of the time. Today, I think it was just fucking with me.

  1. *laugh* Oh god. Totally fucking with you!!

    “Russian fart”

    *laugh*

  2. I am laughing so much that my dog is giving me a funny look! The Husband has horrible issues with his smartphone & his car. Neither voice recognition system seems to understand him, yet he just keeps trying. (I always try not to giggle or snigger because it’s funny but he gets quite annoyed.)

      Ha! On the rare occasions that I do have verbal altercations with my speech recognition apps, when it gets to the point of ridiculousness, I often find myself laughing… all alone (except for Siri, or Dragon, or whatever other robot I’m talking to). :)

  3. Oh my god, you made me laugh so hard! I’ve had conversations like that with Siri. Voice recognition is awesome, except when it’s not. :)

  4. Hi DD:

    That is hysterical!! I work in IT and happened to spy that software on a user’s computer only yesterday. Now I know what it does! Technology is great when it works. Now if only we could fix similar communication problems between humans…

    Best

    hmp

    • Now if only we could fix similar communication problems between humans…

      Exactly! Do what I say when I say it, and if I haven’t been clear, I’d like you to figure it out. Is that so much to ask? :)

  5. lol that’s awesomely frustrating. It’s totally messing with you.

  6. I love Dragon and HATE that I can’t use it on my Chromebook (only comp I could afford when the last one broke). When it works, it’s beautiful, but i have so had days like that!

      I know, right? When it works, it’s the best! But…

      Every time I finally find workarounds for its various quirks (fixes for wonky commands, it’s inability to play nice with some word processors), Dragon releases a new version. I get all excited that the new version will fix the sins of the old version, I fork out $150 bucks (no free upgrades), and just end up with a new set of problems.

      But still! Even with all of that, it’s amazing, it’s worth it, and I will buy every new release as soon as it’s out. I am a sucker for anything that makes my life even slightly more convenient.

  7. That is hilarious. Maybe you need a person to take dictation for you. Errors are still possible, but punching a stupid person is less likely to hurt your hand than punching a stupid computer.

    • Maybe you need a person to take dictation for you. Errors are still possible, but punching a stupid person is less likely to hurt your hand than punching a stupid computer.

      Hmmm…. while you’re right that punching a person might hurt less, I’m not sure whether machine errors or human errors would be more frustrating in the long run. I lose my patience with people far quicker than I do with machines. :)
