Do you need voice recognition software?

Editing_and_proofreading_blog_286I tried voice recognition years ago, & gave up with it. To be fair, the problem was really down to the material. I was doing some research at the time, & transcribing old documents. It was useful to keep my eye on the text, rather than losing my place every time I looked away to type. The documents were full of old legal terms, so training the software was an uphill task.

I intended to give the idea another go on something easier, but I never found the need for it.

As with everything else, the technology has moved on rapidly in recent years. I have been meaning to give it another go.

Perhaps now is the time. Here is a post about using voice recognition software.
