computer dictation

  rupie 29 Jun 08

I am looking for a piece of software that can convert my speech to words, as i dictate. I have recording software and can create many formats of audio file but I want to conver it to a document such as word, that just needs proofing afterwards ???

click here produce software that converts speech to text if you check their site I think you could find what you are seeking.

I used to use Dragon Naturally Speaking which was ok but there was a learning period in terms of how you speak, speed etc.

They also used to sell the software with a mike headset included which is needed for dictation.

you'll have speech recognition capabilities. You can use it to dictate text to Wordpad, or to give commands to the operating system.

I haven't used it myself, so I can't comment on its effectiveness. You'll find a speech recognition icon in the Control panel - click on it and take it from there; you'll need a microphone before you start.

and let us know how you get on?

Voice recognition was discontinued when Office 2007 came along, and I can't help feeling there was a good reason for that.
