Trying new technology

Having had such a huge success with touchdraw for my ipad, i thought i would try a couple more apps. First blogpress for inserting photos and writing my blogposts. That went well.




I can't say that the dragon dictation was quite so successful. Here's what it thought I said. Literally copied and pasted from the app. You can kind of get the gist of what I was saying but I'm not sure my blog is going to be enhanced by this kind of gibberish. Or maybe it would be?

Okay Summerfields entrancingly technology flowable my blog festival I'm going to try out DragonDictate shouldn't circum-sitting in bed dictating my blog post and Ermintrudes try to blog plasticine trachytic photo from my Apple mobile device and put it into my perplexed.

  2. Ah I see Dragon is related to Siri, apparently they both get better or is that funnier over time!

  9. Ah, I've actually tested Dragon for use by people with RSI in offices, you actually have to do all the learning things with it before you use it, you can't skip that part!!! There should be a bunch of texts for you to read to it (IIRC Alice in Wonderland is one of the options) That's how it recognises how you say certain words, and then uses it going forward. It's time consuming setting it up, but after you've done that it's much better.

  20. I tried Dragon Dictation at work a few years ago. Even though I did the tutorials and kept at it for several weeks, it never gave me anything but gibberish. Too bad it's a great idea. When I was young I wanted to invent a machine that would write down your thoughts for you. Then you wouldn't even have to talk!
