Speak and let Dictation Pro type for you. Prepare your letters, reports, e-mails just by speaking into your microphone. Type documents with minimum keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can input text three times faster by speaking than typing. Dictation Pro includes commands for formatting, deleting, and copying words and passages. The commands are easy to remember and designed to simplify and speed up editing by voice. Instead of using the mouse to select or a keyboard to type shortcuts, just speak the command and Dictation Pro executes it for you.
It puts you through "practice" to let the computer get used to your voice.
The practice takes FOREVER. Then, on my first try, the printed words were so far from what I said that there was NO way to even come close to understanding what I said unless you heard it yourself. COMPLETELY USELESS for dictation.
Sadly I'm to blame for not noticing that you need Vista for this program. I have no idea if the program is any good. But the two programs that hitched a ride on it are malicious, at least on an XP system. Along without learning that my system was not compatible until after the installation was (incomplete), GetSavin and InfoAtoms also downloaded. CNET did not warn me this was happening during the install. Those two (some may think Virus) snoopers caused repeated crashes until 'Advanced System Care' from IObit got rid of them. I'm not endorsing IObit, but I'm at about 99%. If you have these critters on your computer get ASC directly from IOBit, not through CNET. CNET most likely is an unwitting partner, but there download helper needs major work. ... continue in Summery below...
Had the load helper checked my system and there database up front they could have warned me that the program was incompatible and strongly warned against continuing. Oh Boo Hoo, but consider how many times you forgot something and regret it. Malware after all counts on it. The (CNET) program once written never forgets. I'll be writing a lot more about this in the general discussion form. In Summery Look for and delete GetSavin and InfoAtoms if you find them. They don't show up in Windows list of programs. You'll need to up your game to locate them. Both have been flagged as Malware on the Net. CNET should have known this and warned down-loaders when they were trying to hitch a ride.
Does not recognize proper names or unusual words. Has a training routine that doesn't work. No matter how many times you add a word, it still translates it as wrong.
If you need a clean document it's pretty much useless - you can write it by hand quicker than you can go back and correct all the mistakes - but if you are just making notes, the text is mostly decipherable.
