    .Hey, thought I'd share a shortcut... or faster way I write stuff for blogs articles, etc....

    To be perfectly honest, I tend to rewrite stiff from the article sites.... but I don't type.... I find that typing slows my thought process down...i don't know...it's like my hands get stuck at the keys...and while i'm a pretty fast typer i tend to make lots of typos which totally ruin my train of thought.

    Voice recognition software doesn't wonk for me either.... It's like I get speechless... I spend hours going," AH... uh..... Not only that; but voice rec. software tends to be lame..." How to make Money online " comes out " Fake Honey by 5".... Drives me nuts!

    I've found that the best thing for me is to write my stuff using a pen tablet. Windows Vista does a better job recognizing my handwriting than it does my voice.... I basically scribble my words...typos are no big deal... and while the handwriting analyzer. isn't perfect its a million times better than DNS. I mean, I've got really really sloppy handwriting --- and VISTA Does and good job of translating my scribes... :)

    I don't know why it's easier to write this way... but it is. Maybe its coz I'm right handed... and writing with my right hand' is natural.... I can come up with words and sentences to write or rewrite faster. I just think better when I writes guess.

    You can get a small cheapie wacom tablet from best buy or somewhere un line for like $60. I use an intous....it's pricey put me out about $400... but I use mine for oh stuff... like digital art and stuff...i tried it one day for articles and word stuff and i was hooked.

    Try it.... :)

    Typing works just fine for me! I can type real quick. 500word articles doesnt take more then 10 minutes for me to rewrite. So i don't really see the reason why i would want to go out and get a pen when i can just use my keyboard!

    Secondly, ive tried voice recognition and this handwriting tool you just mentioned in the past. I dont think that the software is that good.

    It takes my h as a or mistakes my e as an o.

    I dont think its my handwriting. But who knows!

    if you go through the handwriting recognition set up in vista, it should learn your handwriting......i literally scribble and it is pretty acurate...

    Can it pick up cursive writing? Or does it just pick up letters written alone?

    I have a cursive writing style, italic. Would it pick that up?

    I think this would slow me down tremendously, but good on you if you can rock a tablet for article writing.

    yes, it can pick up cursive.....i combine both cursive + script...

    when you write, vista will do word recogntion as you write....kinda like when you text w/your mobile...when you write a word, it'll come up with a match....

    there have been times i scribble the word 'ask' and windows will pick it up as 'all'.....i put my pen back to the work 'ask...and right a 'k' at the end....then windows will automatically realize i meant 'ask' instead of 'all'

    if i want to scratch out a sentence or a word....all i have to do is put a line through the word....and it's gone. i don't have to arrow to the word, or backspace, or anything like that.

    i find re-writing articles with the tablet much faster....sure the translater doesn't get 100....at least when i was growing up 100 of my writing was done with a pen and paper....i can type...and i can type fast...but i find that using the pen pad helps get those brain cells fired up better.

    sounds pretty good... i think you have a point about writing as opposed to typing... it's much more natural, our brain is more trained that way... no distraction of finding keys or remembering where they are, just a natural flow

    I can type faster than I write. Good tip though, I could have sworn you were going to say voice recognition software.
