Nuance released version 11 of Dragon Naturally Speaking, their voice recognition / dictation software. Below is a rather unusual review by David Pogue of The New York Times:
On a more serious note – I’m a really poor typist, my blogging is hampered by the slowness of typing, and there are all those situations when I have the quick idea, am already mentally formulating a post,, but don’t get close to a computer for a while… a digital recorder would come handy, and Dragon could transcribe the voice file later. Of course it still does not help while swimming laps, and that’s where my best ideas typically come
Anyway, if you do have experience with Dragon, or dictation / transcription software in general, please share your experience.
