Welcome to Laugh Out Loud Monday (aka LOL Monday): because, like my favorite fat cat, I hate Mondays, I thought, “What better way to start the week than with a laugh?”
As I continue to snatch time to write my new novel, I find myself scribbling scenes in a spiral notebook — one of my favorite ways to write. Unfortunately that means I have to go back later and type what I’ve written. That can be very time-consuming.
I’ve tried using Windows 7 speech recognition software to speed up the process with some strange results. Apparently, I’m not alone in that.
Although the video was made sometime in 2006, I have to say from personal experience that the speech recognition software is still buggy.
I’m curious to know, is there any writer out there who thinks voice recognition software is the greatest thing since sliced bread? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject. Is this the next step from pen to typewriter to computer to speech?
