I bought new voice recognition software this week and spent the morning setting it up. I used to have an older version on my laptop, but no longer have the laptop.
It’s the newest version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I wrote about the software at Blogging Made Easy…Dragon Naturally Speaking.
I debated on getting it for my desktop, but realized how spoiled I am. I’d much rather talk, then type. As my iPhone and my Kindle Fire both have the talk-to-type feature, I decided my desktop needed it too.
Five years ago if you had told me I’d have more than a desktop computer, I would have told you, “No way.” However, today I not only have my desktop, I also have a laptop, a Kindle Touch, a Kindle Fire, and an IPhone.
I added the IPhone this week. I have to laugh because five years ago I was adamant that I didn’t want (and didn’t need) a cellphone. I refused to be “so accessible.”
When I got my first cellphone, I was hooked. It was a basic phone that I could text, go online and, of course, make phone calls with. I was content with those features. My reason for getting it was because I wanted my own “private” phone; I had moved in with Greg and his mother and shared the house phone.
