No Carpal Tunnel Syndrome For Me


I’m “writing” this blog entry using my new software called MacSpeech Dictate. By just speaking normally into the microphone headset, the software turns my speech into text for use in just about any application I can use on my Mac. So I can use it to write blog posts, answer e-mail, dictate letters, draft teacher reports, or just about anything else I can imagine without using the keyboard. I can also use the microphone to give the computer commands such as “open Microsoft Word” or “copy selection” or “quit this application.” The software accurately recognizes about 99% of words spoken. This is pretty cool!

Microsoft has had this software and it is already included on xp free of charge.
