View Full Version : Voice engines and recognition
Nov 13th, 2006, 08:56 AM
There is just some stuff that doesn't fit into any existing thread without interrupting that thread.
Does anyone here have experience with voice engines and recognition who can comment on advantages of Dragon vs. MS XP or the new Vista thing???

Voice to text and commands, please. Playing with text to voice now and it works great. It's a blast. Since I will be getting Vista, and I think it's included free, I am wondering if anyone has tried it in Vista Beta (or another program) and if it works OK....or just general info about voice to text would be helpful.....that is the part is new to me....

When you say voice - text.. I presume you mean you wanna be able to speak into Microsoft Word, and have the words appear on screen? Or run commands and programs by speaking to the computer.
I have a "little" experience with Dragon, but Vista has it built in
see here (http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/50c5dd28-9f8a-429e-9669-a42a292cea231033.mspx)
Let me know what you need....

Thanks Bruce (will finished reading Vista thing tomorrow--It's real long). So what dragon do you have and please describe how well it does or does not work please...They make Dragon 9 Preferred look so tempting...I would like it for a Thanksgiving present, or is that a Christmas thing....?LOL. Oh yeh and now the latest version is $20. off...such a deal...

If your getting Vista soon... Don't pay for Dragon.. Spend the money on a really good headset with mike and speakers instead. It'll pay for itself in weeks.

Thanks, Yeh I noticed that most of the serious "voice to text" peeps use a good head set mike (which I have never done before) vs. desk top mike. The tutorial says it keeps out extraneous noise that could confuse the computer....
