Writing by voice not thumbsPosted Wednesday, October 19, 2011, at 7:31 AM
Did you know that windows 7 has a built-in voice recognition program? It is really quite interesting, but requires some getting used to.
That is how this post is being written.
Going through the tutorial helps the program learn your voice and remembering the exact command words requires a cheat sheet, at least for me. I presume the more you use it and correct it using verbal commands, the more accurately it interprets your voice.
However, the typing accuracy is better than my thumbs, unless of course, it does not recognize what I said.
I can use it to give commands to the computer as well as writing in most software programs I have today. I can also correct it by keyboard at any time.
Maybe someone here can give us more information?
I started looking because of a new application on a work cohort's cell phone. He able to write emails to me using voice only which is a real blessing since I would not get information from him otherwise.
