Comedy-of-Errors

The other day I decided to reformat my computer. It had been acting funky and was in need of help. The first error occurred in backing up my files when I over wrote valuable files on a thumb drive. Instead of saving my files in a separate location, I over wrote the existing files on the [...]

Scribe

If it aint broke, don’t fix it, right?  But what about trying to tweak it just a bit? I enjoy the functionality of using the Dragon NaturallySpeaking app on my Smartphone to dictate work to my computer. The downside to the setup, however, is that I have to hold the phone in order to dictate. [...]

Dragon-Remote

After using the dictation app that came with the Samsung Galaxy, I decided to try remote dictation with Dragon’s NaturallySpeaking. After all, if I can write one article on two separate devices at the same time using Android’s default dictation software, imagine what I can do with NaturallySpeaking. To use Dragon’s remote microphone feature you’ve [...]

Platronics Audio 995

I use Dragon Deluxe NaturallySpeaking software to dictate a lot of my work. In order for the software to hear my instructions and dictation, I’ve got to use a compatible headset. I’ve used both the Logitech and Microsoft LifeChat USB wired headset in the past. They both had their pros and cons, but one thing [...]

Microsoft-Life-Chat

A few months ago I purchased a Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 USB headset. I needed to replace my old Logitech headset which crapped out on me. I used the headset with my voice recognition software. The old Logitech headphones worked okay in the beginning but after a while, I noticed that I had to do more [...]

Dragon Naturally Speaking

I recently upgraded from Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 9 to version 11. I’ve got to say that version 11 soars leaps and bounds above version 9. It’s hard to compare and 9 to 11 because they’re almost like two entirely different animals. Many moons ago when I purchased Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 9, I spent quite a bit [...]

Word 2003

There are times when you need to perform a simple mathematical equation in Word, but you just don’t want to get up from your computer to locate your calculator. Even worse, you don’t want to take the time to search through your desktop for the Calculator software program. Fortunately, Word 2003 has a simple and [...]

Dragon Icon

Dragon NaturallySpeaking voice recognition program is a tool that will enhance any writer’s productivity. While it is not an absolutely necessary writing tool to become successful as a writer, it sure is nice to have. I’ve found as a freelance writer, the more you write, the more you get paid. Yes I do write because [...]

Voice Recognition Software

Windows Vista or NaturallySpeaking voice recognition software can really catapult a freelance writer’s productivity by leaps and bounds. It’s similar to the way that computers increased writing productivity from writing with pen and paper. Think about it for a moment. In the old days, research had to be done at a library or other information [...]
