What Voice Recognition software would you recomind?
« on: February 28, 2005, 04:36:37 pm »
due to a Personal situation, I'm looking for a good Voice Recog software. I thought I had a copy of Dragon Naturaly But I can't find It. What is the state of these Programs now?

It would be mostly for letters, a few post's etc.

Office 2003 includes voice recgonition software, and I believe you can change what reconition engine it uses too:

Thanks Bonk. Man I don't remember Naturaly Speaking being so Expensive. I remember I got an older copy from AoHell along time ago, But  Ididn't think I paid that much for It. I guess I better find my old copy or Sell a few Cows.

I told you that doing that all the time would make you go blind and wind up needing voice recognition software.


NPR is a lot like NASCAR.  Two hundred miles an hour in a circle, and you end up right back where you started with nothing but lost time for the effort.

I experimented with that stuff 4 years ago...I really cannot recommend the lead product now because i dont know where the state of the art is at this moment.

I didn't like it then. 

Naturally speaking, in the past, had a somewhat tedious reading drill it used to get used to your voice.  So of all the other products it did better but dictating to it felt cumbersome.

Actually, the best one that I have used personally is L&H Voice Express Professional.. it is by the same makers of Dragon, but a much more improved and integrated engine.. you can even surf the web by voice command.. you could (if you have the money to wire your house) make your whole house voice activated under Voice Express.. Last time I got it , it was 3 years ago for $120.. and I got it at Comp USA..
