The following information is target specific. I am not one of the targets, sadly.
For users of the iPhone, there is a new (free, always a good thing) app called Dragon Dictaton. I just saw it demonstrated by David Pogue who is, among other things, the New York Times technology columnist.
He called up the app and spoke into his iPhone inserting punctuation as he did so by saying the words comma, period, etc. His voice was turned into a perfectly spelled and punctuated TEXT message. Honestly.
And this is free? It is made by the Dragon, Naturally Speaking people who make speech recognition software. Free! Did I mention that?
Now, I don't have an iPhone or even a 3G phone at all. Being retired, I have access to the internet most of the day, anyway, from home. (That's my rationale for being cheap). So if I am so excited by the demonstration I witnessed, imagine what the iPhone user will be like.
Just had to share. Consider this a public service announcement . . .
