My brother knows that my arms, shoulders, neck, back, and everything else hurts and it's hard for me to type all day, etc. and sent me the following email (which I copied to post here) about some new software that he just got--he is a doctor and has a lot of reports that he has to write, and notes on his patients' files, etc. Here is what he wrote to me, it may help you in your writing .... Along comes a great piece of software. This software is called Dragon Naturally Speaking. This is a voice recognition technology that simply types, in English, everything I say into the microphone. It can be used with word processors, e-mail, and just about any other document that requires several paragraphs. One of my patients recommended it and I can say that it's fantastic. It's available through Amazon for about $43, plus free shipping. The package includes the voice recognition technology software as well as a complete headset. Once installed, you simply place the cursor in the location you wish to dictate, then speak away. This entire e-mail was written using the voice recognition technology. Since many of you in the family are students and frequently write papers, I thought this may be of interest to you. It would be especially helpful if you hate typing. It also provides its own spell check. This just actually unbelievable. Well, a routine report often takes me 70 minutes to complete, I can now dictate a complete report in about 15 minutes. If you're interested, the product is located on Amazon and is currently on sale. For those of you with the iPhone's, there is also a voice recognition application that you can download for free and experiment with the technology. Just search for Dragon in the iPhone applications section. The software is at least 98% accurate. In this entire e-mail I’ve made 2 corrections. I sure wish I had this technology when I was in school. *End of his email.
