Voice Recognition Test

This is a test post written using Microsoft Voice Recognition.  I’ll tell you what I’m having a lot of fun with this.

It takes some getting used to.  I’m also having a lot of trouble with Google Chrome.  It seems Chrome uses some other voice recognition scheme.  It seems to not be compatible with Microsoft’s voice recognition scheme.  It doesn’t look like an issue that training that will remedy either.  It seems that Google Chrome doesn’t refer to the Microsoft voice recognition API and will never get what Microsoft is sending it.

That’s why I’m using Internet Explorer to post this.  While the WordPress admin screen will not let me jump directly to the text input form, I’m only one mouse click away from a speaking everything you see here directly into my blog.  Naturally there is a lot of correction to be done.  You may notice I’m not using much punctuation.  You do have to speak all of your punctuation, which is cumbersome not actually to perform a but to go back and locate the cursor to insert punctuation in the right place.  That is a pain in the butt. 

Just now I get to a point where I had to edit things by hand.  You would not believe the trouble you get into trying to refer to the Italics button while adding text.  I have a secret devious plan you see I would like to record blog posts and post them from afar.  And as text recognition stuff is going to be T.  I like the Microsoft approach because it does not rely on anything that external to this machine–no Internet connection, no online service–to do a text recognition.

As I get better at this–even in the course of a single blog post–I find the navigation within text to be rapidly increasing in ease.  Also you may notice my diction that becomes a bit strained.  It is a very different process than writing to begin speaking and have your words taken down verbatim.  If you like I think as you speak you realize that you’re already committed to the beginning of the sentence by the time you’re about halfway through it.  So I imagine this will result in some clumsy constructions toward the end of sentences, for obvious reasons. 

Well, that’s enough for this blog post.  As an aside I was able to say that by saying well comma that’s enough for this blog post period.  And I was able to say that by saying a well literal comma that’s enough for this blog post literal period.
