this is my first post using Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5.
I’m going to see how accurate the dictation software is and I’m not trying to trick it up I’m actually trying to speak clearly and use all the words I normally would in the course of a regular conversation.
I will not go back and correct any of the mistakes that Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5 makes but rather continue dictating and allow Dragon to either demonstrate how effective it is or allow you to see how effective it is at recognizing what I have to say.
So far it does seem like this would be far faster than typing. My typing skills are approximately average to maybe a little above average but I don’t think I could even compete closely with how well Dragon 11.5 is typing up what I dictate so far. Although I haven’t gone and reread anything it does not look like they’re too many mistakes at this point and although I’m tempted to take my time and speak even more clearly I need to learn to trust the dictation software and believe that it will be effective. This will indeed make blogging and typing letters much quicker and I suppose I can even use it for e-mail correspondence.
I do not care for the navigation functions so far I’ve not figured out how to get it to select the proper icons or drop-down menus that I would like its to select. Perhaps that’s something I need to learn and spend some time with the training video on. When I received the software it did come with a free training video so perhaps I could spend some time watching that video learning what I can do better.
In a matter of just a few minutes I believe the hype well over 300 words that is substantially faster than I would be able to type using my hands. I suppose that Dragon naturally speaking version 11.5 Artie has some where in their marketing software that you can type with your voice. It also is a little cumbersome or maybe just uncomfortable is a new experience, to be dictating punctuation as well. I used to dictate into a dictation machine and have secretary transcribe things. When I was doing that it was easy to leave a quick note for the secretary to understand the formatting or how you wanted the sentence structure to work and just simply by the tone of voice the secretary could tell when it was something to be dictated versus something to be considered a note to her.
Now for paragraph of me testing talking a little bit faster. Thank close my eyes and therefore be up to speak much faster and not be distracted watching the trans-dictation process. I’m going to start talking as fast as I can and see if Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 11.5 can keep up with me or if it’s been a stumble and be confused when my voice accelerates rapidly. I should also try using some longer words that if perhaps may have less familiarity with. I also could use some information like our website address name searchable..com and see if it can recognize it as a domain name or if it types up the individual words.
That was pretty impressive I am at already over 550 words.
I started using Dragon NaturallySpeaking when it had version 5 I believe many years ago and that version was very ineffective.
I’m testing my new software that will dictate that I can dictate to and it’ll type everything that I’m saying right now as long as it doesn’t confuse your voice with my it might be confused if you start talking and it hears you. Otherwise it’s actually been doing pretty good. I’ve been able to speak fairly fast and although it has some lag time and it eventually types everything I’ve been saying.
My son Josh would just walked in the room. He has not gotten to see how amazing Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 11.5 is. Although I’ve trained Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5 with my own voice him and put him on the microphone allow him to dictate a couple sentences and see if it can recognize his voice even though it’ll be using my voice profile.
Can you hear is testing the KDE is here and I’m glad
okay as you can tell that was very ineffective. Obviously the voice profile is very important. I suppose if we could set my son Josh up with his own profile, Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 11.5 would recognize his voice as effectively as it’s been recognizing mine.
