I Don't Sound Like a Robot!



Talk about 1984 ... below is what I dictated into Microsoft Word using MacSpeech Dictate.

"Hey everybody! I'm dictating using this amazing MacSpeech dictate to create this blog entry and I am totally blown away at how accurate it is. I just received it from Amazon.com and I spent about five minutes reading a little story into the computer so it trains the software program to be able to detect my words and here it is.  It is pretty darn accurate.  This is totally awesome! Goodbye now I have to play with my new toy!"

I can't wait to spend time with my computer and this program in my studio.  My intent is to use Dictate to record all of my movements when making jewelry!  Woohoo!

Amazing! What a time saver while you create things that you want a record of. You know, I talk in my head all of the time when I'm writing things. This is just so great!

Hmmm, I don't "talk in my head" I yack away to myself! (well, under the guise of discussing it with the pup)

Yes - it is awesome. And a bit scary. But I am sure it will be a great help while writing your book. Like having a secretary taking notes. Now you just have to teach the computer to make coffee... LOL

Barbara, thanks for this fabulous idea! I didn't know this software existed-- the older versions were very kludge-y. When I work on jewelry, I usually have a little blog dialog going in my head about my process or how I fabricate the thing so then I have to get up and get into the program, and type it in, etc. etc. I've thought about a tape recorder but then I'd have to transcribe. This would solve that problem. I assume you need to have a microphone on your bench? You are the Art Technology Queen!
