I recently purchased Dragon NaturallySpeaking, and I decided… That I would review it by using it to write the review, I am speaking this post. So from here on out I will not be using anything other than Dragon NaturallySpeaking to write this post. (Unedited, so yes I know there are mistakes, just wanted you to see how accurate it is)
Dragon was relatively easy to install and train to my voice. It took approximately 30 min. for the whole thing to get up and ready for me to write this post, and I’m doing it all simply by speaking into a microphone on my desktop. I can imagine that getting used to speaking the punctuation, will be something that will trip me up from time to time but to be honest it is extremely fast to speak instead of type. I use the trainer that comes with it to learn my voice it took about 5 min. I read a bunch of sentences and for the most part it was very very easy. I think that after I read this post I will most likely choose to do another training session with more difficult vocabulary and give the computer extra time to learn my voice.
One thing that I’m really happy about is the ability to write and speak and think without having to spend so much time punching keys it’s been exciting to see the words come out as fast as I can think them. So if you been thinking about giving Dragon NaturallySpeaking a try, if you spend a lot of time writing, or you just a kind of a nerd about technology. And you can see this on edited piece of writing is indeed not so far off from what I meant to write. After only 30 min. I’m able to just speak this out and it ends up right here for you to read.
So without further ado here’s an Amazon affiliate link if you are thinking about buying it:
