Voice Recognition Software – or Not?

I’ve been looking at voice recognition software for the last few days – there’s only really one player out there and that’s Nuance with Dragon Naturally Speaking.

I tried Dragon several years ago and I’ll be honest, hated it. But after Friday when I wrote five paragraphs where my brain was working quicker than my fingers I think I’ve got to give it valid consideration!!

That was until I found out with a product costing over £100 they don’t have a demo/trial version for me to have a play with. They simply say:

“We have invested greatly in Dragon 11. You can buy it at www.dragon.co.uk with a 30 day money back guarantee.”

Fortunately I don’t have a Scottish accent… See video below 🙂

On the other hand if you’ve got good or bad things to say about voice recognition software I’d love to hear about it before I spend hard earned cash!!
