There Be Dragons Here

February 28, 2017 Leave a comment

So, I am in the new house, for a few months now. Finally, I have a new computer and I have put Dragon voice or Dragon NaturallySpeaking on it, to help me compose. This will take some getting used to. When I used Microsoft’s voice system, it didn’t work as well as I had hoped. Here is to better listening.

So far, it seems to be doing what I say. I am hoping this little tool will help me along the way to further authorship. It might. As I say, it takes some getting used to.

I have noticed some authors getting into a lot of trouble with this kind of tool. It isn’t that the tool doesn’t work, just that they don’t go into the text afterwards and look for mistakes. Now that’s one thing on a daily blog, but quite another when you’re writing a novel for sale. (Just so you know, it knew which version of “your” to put in there)

To add to the hilarity, WordPress has changed its menu system, so it took me a while to figure out how to make a new post. But, as they say, live and learn.

Anyhow, enough for quick blog post. It is after 11, and the dogs are looking at me to go to bed. So I will just get this thing published, then go to bed.

Good night world!
