I didn't know that the Microsoft Office Suite included Speech Recognition until my nephew told me. He writes these long essays for school which is why he found it. (I always thought his paper's seemed like free association, now I know why-they are).
Anyway, I installed it and I've been playing with it. To really tune it in to your speech patterns takes about an hour. Since I wear dentures some of my articulation isn't very good. Still, it does an adequate job. It's funny how some of the words come out. When I say "high" it writes "five".
However, I transferred an essay from paper to Word in about half the time that it would take to type, even going back for corrections.

To do this I bought a headset microphone. It reminded me of a forum that I used to be part of. It was called "Paltalk" and it was lot's of fun. You could even go to a video forum, which was even more fun. However that was back in the day with Dialup or DSL and it took a LOT of memory. It would be nice to find something like that again, (as long as it's not like Facebook).

I use MS Outlook as my email program, which by default also uses MS Word, so I can write emails like talking on the phone- well, kinda.
The program is good for someone like me because I am a writer. I write a lot of essays on paper first and then edit them after I put them on the computer. I am a VERY bad typist so this should cut down my editing time.
P.S. I found that PalTalk still exists.
P.P.S. I used SR to write this then copied and pasted it here. I only had to make about 6 corrections. Pretty cool, hug? Wink
