I’ve been having great difficulty typing lately because I have limited use of my left hand. So I did some research online and discovered that there are several software applications available with speech recognition capabilities, including a free Windows application.
For me, this is a godsend!
I am using the Windows application now to create this post. Fantastic!
I haven’t figured out how to use the application in WordPress, so I am dictating in Wordpad and copying to WordPress. It is a slightly slower process at the moment, but it is much easier than typing and lots of fun! I feel like a kid in a candy shop!
Here is a link to a website that provides a good analysis of the various speech recognition applications. To check out Windows Speech Recognition, go to your Start menu and in the search box at the bottom, type ‘
speech recognition.’ Then click on Start speech recognition and follow the instructions.
Windows has a very good online tutorial that is easy to follow and I would recommend using it to get started.
Now, if I could just figure out how to get this app to clean my house!
Have an awesomely speech-filled day!
