I completely understand what you're saying. This not having to use my hands, is a great way to multitask, because even as brain dead as I am, I still think that I did watch TV and talk at the same time.
I am using the audio to text program right now as I watch big brother 11 through realplayer. I finally broke down after watching Showtime's 3 hour show last night after dark, I miss the fights that you don't get to see unless you have live feed.
So far, all I have had to do is change one word, which most likely I said improper anyway. I think this thing I like most about this program, is that it does allow me to speak as quickly as I'd tend to speak, and no sooner telephony saying the things I say it appears on the screen as one big paragraph.
I tend to agree to where technology is going. If I had the option of a little eyeball camera which would read my retinas, and if I had to do was blank in order to click a link, then most likely all I would do is there to screen all day like a zombie.
The only thing I haven't done so far, is to relentlessly right incredibly long sentences, exacerbate all my ability to communicate in the way I normally do-which is too deeply breathe as much as I can it continue one like the whippoorwill for 5 hours. But who's to say that this isn't the first conversation all have in such a manner?
Honestly, I'm not even checking for spelling errors. Where should I say grammatical errors. Or better yet should I say for improper word usage!
Everything I have said here is that my normal 600,000 words per minute, and to be honest I am actually speaking faster than I normally do.
So I wonder if the evolution of man himself will change, I wonder if we will evolve into new creatures with different heads that serve different purposes? As I sit here I read with my years, I typed with my mouth, very likely in 10 years no longer use my butt as a place to keep my head or my mouth as a place to keep my foot...
Finally, I finished with this post. I have been watching the clock is been roughly 6 minutes, I did correct one word, I will be honest about that, but that is the good thing about this program, it just allows you to make simple corrections as quickly as you speak sentences.
And finally I figure in roughly 10,000 years my arms should fall off completely. That of course is if I am and not me, I think my arms will probably fall off the bone in about 20 years or so.
So this has been a study of voice recognition. With few flaws and all your learning curve of terminology to help the software know what you wanted to do, it really has come a long way from programs I remember using just a few years ago. Even when I speak as fast as I can the accuracy is incredible. Surely this will save me a lot of time in writing extremely long posts, and even a fight on troubleshooting for words that are being correctly placed in the sentences, I'm sure that most people would wonder why it says mouths instead of mouse. Given my own history of such things, it's very likely I would've made the same mistake myself :-) talks soon my friend.
See you in chat!
After rereading this - I type
Mick: I just actually read this post, and all in all I am pleased that the wording and phrasing was fairly good. I got "right" instead of "write" I think I need to pronounce my "WH" sound a tad better to let it know the difference as I continue to teach it to type for me. I don't mind errors at all, it is likely to make less spelling errors than I ever would and as this technology improves with features, right now it opens and closes, maximizes and minimizes, opens any link on any web page by reading the link title. It plays Youtube videos (although it cannot full-screen or pause or stop videos - at least I can't get it to yet. Even as I type this, I had to make 5 spelling corrections - lol.
I may not post perfectly spoken sentences, so the MICROSOFT'S SPEECH RECOGNITION SOFTWARE may never see 100%, but then again - I doubt I hit 90% myself much of the time.
