It’s time for a Dragon.

Not this kind;

THIS kind.

I’ve just purchased Dragon Home software, as well as a compatible headset and a how-to book. My confidence in voice-to-text software is now very high after a year of speaking my text messages into my phone. Hopefully, this will allow me to write much more quickly. I am a dyslexic typist and constantly lose my train of thought when writing because there are as many as three to seven typos per┬ásentence that I need to go back and fix due to switching the characters, sometimes several times in one long word.

Also, the price of the has come WAY down. Moore’s Law, dontcha know.

So I will keep you all posted on how this experiment goes, but some of my writer buddies say it’s been an enormous productivity booster for them. I hope to have similar results.

  1. I’ve always been afraid of using Dragon or other TTS software because words aren’t concrete for me unless I see them, and I always type ahead of my thoughts — these fingers are fast! Still, I’m facing a time when I won’t be able to type for up to 2 months, so I might need to buy it!

  2. I will let you know how it goes. The software and the headset will be here Tuesday, Jan 8.
