Thread: Getting ready to bug you again

    Getting ready to bug you again

    For my birthday, the kids bought me voice recognition software called Dragon so I can speak and let it type for me. So, beware, I may send be posting responses as soon as I learn how to use it.

    It's been a long time since I've posted and just of late have I been lurking. Hope I don't wear out my welcome.

    I hope that you and "The Dragon Lady*" get along well.

    I used to be one heck of a typist. My military typing test taking code was 102.2 wpm for 10 min with no errors.

    Now I feel lucky if I can hit 40 wpm for two minutes straight and in English. So the Dragon Lady may be coming to my house. I am interested in seeing how you get along with the Lady.

    You can put a little footnote, like the cellphone members, "Typed by my little ole Dragon Lady on my Dell PC."


    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    Good deal, Bill. Your input is always valued, so I'm glad to see the Dragon Lady will be typing for you now.

    I had word recognition on my phone but it made to made mistakes or it could not understand lazy
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Bill that dragon software has come along way. I am keen on seeing how it works out for you. Please let us know progress and its good to hear you making a plan to stick around. I believe you have much of value to pass on so we need you here to keep guys like me on the straight and narrow.

    Bug away Bill. Would be good to have you back on a more regular basis.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Bill, I'm very happy to see you posting again.
    And if we can understand Larry's typing, I'm sure we'll get what the dragon lady gives us.
