So, basically, I suck and I suck. I read three items: two books and a magazine. And I gained six tenths of a pound. But I also had the flu for 10 days and worked 16 hours a day anyway. I am so stinking tired! I want to sleep! I want to spend time with my kids! I want to blog! You know what I need? A wife. And if I can’t have a wife, I need Dragon Naturally Speaking 10, as recommended by Lisa.
Brett likes it, too. Check this out:
Here is another great video review by Lisa, who coincidently writes the blog Lisa Reviews. She writes about how she can write at 150 words per minute with Dragon NaturallySpeaking.
I think one of the key takeaways from her video, the key insight that is, is that she is able to write a lot more in those spare moments of time that she has while she’s doing other things. Sometimes it’s great to multitask, but it’s even more important to be able to accomplish useful goals in those spare two or three or four minute pockets of time that we all experience throughout the day.
With Dragon NaturallySpeaking a four minute pocket of time can translate into 600 words! That could be three or four e-mails or one or two long blog articles if you’re a blogger like Lisa.
I have been writing about Dragon NaturallySpeaking for almost 2 years now. I have been able to type at rates of up to 167 words per minute with Dragon NaturallySpeaking. That speed was clocked while I was taking a typing test, but even in practical situations when I factor in not only the time it takes to type, but the time that it also takes to edit the words I typed, the end result is that I can still achieve about 100 words a minute, INCLUDING editing time! J
That is extremely fast, and the inclusion of editing time, speaks to the advances that you can see in version 10 as compared to older versions such as version 8 or version 9. It’s a lot easier to edit on the fly with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10.
So if you’re looking for a practical tool for your home office, for your writing or blog work, or even just to keep up with e-mail in your spare time, Dragon NaturallySpeaking can give you the power to write at 150 words a minute for a price that starts at $99. Heck, I think I paid that much almost for my last keyboard so that I wouldn’t pound my fingers to death. 🙂
PS this article includes about 376 words that I wrote with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10. It took me about 3 1/2 minutes to write and edit this article, which is just a little bit better than 100 words per minute and that includes editing time.
Man, he’s wordy, isn’t he? And to think that I sat here and typed those long posts I wrote this week. Obviously, I need to get with the program. If I could blog in my spare minutes….man, I could dictate my blog posts in the morning in odd pockets of time between this and that student/chore/distraction while my mind is still working and then edit/publish them in the afternoon during quiet time, and I wouldn’t be sitting here at ..what time is it??…. 8:20pm while my family is watching Bedknobs and Broomsticks without me. 😡
Cause in the morning, when I am still smart, I say twitter stuff like this:
Dear Blog, I want to come into your inner, secret areas and leave a deposit of warm words on your public face. Why have you locked me out?
But now? All I have are memories of wit, and pitiful tweets like this:
just can’t make my brain work
