Speech Recognition Software

I’ve been playing with speech recognition on my computer today. For the Macintosh there’s a program called iListen and it works pretty well. After doing a bit of training with my voice I am now able to speak rather than writing when putting thoughts into words.

There are still some glitches; however with more training I think that I will be able to get pretty accurate results out of the program.

For Windows machines there is a program called ViaVoice from IBM. It’s supposed be good too but I haven’t actually tried yet.

In this post I only had to edit five words (until this last sentence :-).
