My Fingers Are Jinxed
Only a few days ago I was cutting a slice of bread and got a
little close to my left index finger and , cue large bandage on my finger and a
sudden loss of typing skills!
Then today I was the pots when one broke and sliced my right index
finger, roll out another bandage.
It is times like this that I am very glad I have, and use, Dragon
Naturally Speaking! If you have not used text to speech software for a number
of years it might be worth giving it a try. For those people who can’t type
quickly it can speed up your article writing many times over.
I actually type pretty quick, hence all the errors on my forum
posts, but I still like to use Dragon now and then. It great advantage is I can
lean back in my chair, close my eyes and just speak an article out. I find
typing while leaning back with my eyes shut hard.
If you ever give it a go then do get a decent microphone, pick one
that is on their compatibility chart. It does not have to be expensive, but
there are lots of mics out there whose quality is too low to work properly for
such dictation software.
You will find a list of compatible mics here:
