    So after writing a couple hundred thousand words by hand over the past months I finally decided to give dragon naturally speaking a try. Cranked out about 14 articles in an hour. No more paying for content or writing for me! I suggest you all try it out if you have not already!

    Cheers

    I don't know, I type around 67 words a minute and I delete and change my mind alot. Is it hard to delete and what about grammar and comma's and so on?

    I type around 100 words a minute if I am very focused. Extremely easy to delete just by saying the word and saying delete. Grammar gets better when you use it for a while and teach it what words and you can teach it how to spell things. Commas are also easy as you just say comma. I am using it for writing articles for my massive T1.

    I generally write an article of 500 words in 15 minutes. I tried dragon naturally speaking for a month, but was not satisfied particularly because it didn't understand me. I have a habit of speaking damn fast, so I suppose it's difficult for the software to understand me. There's plenty of typos due to this and I end up spending a majority of time correcting the sentences rather than writing new ones. Therefore, as of now, I am sticking with writing articles without any use of software. Moreover, I hired couple of high quality writers who do the job for me. It's easier and cheaper. Everyone has their own preferences. :)

    I use a similar method, maybe I should try out dragon. I found it hard to write content randomly from my mind so I carry a voice recorder with me and when I get an idea to write about, I turn on the recorded and start talking. When I get back to the house I transcribe the recording into an article. Is there a way I could play my recordings to dragon and it would accomplish the transcribing part? If so, I will have to give it a try.

    I would imagine this is very easy? Press play instead of starting to talk?

    You would think so, but I've used the software in the past (few years ago) and sometimes you had to repeat things, or slow down... Not sure if they have upgraded it since then.
