In an attempt to reconcile myself with the functionality of my body and my need to produce documents, I have obtained a well known voice recognition software program. This is proof that it really does work pretty well.
On the advice of Disability Services at the University where I am scheduled for comps, I was exploring the software options before the most recent arthritis concern. Just in case. Now, I think that was pretty good advice. The software package came with a wired microphone headset that seems to work well. However, if I upgrade to a Bluetooth headset microphone, I can even wander around while writing.
I guess the next thing to do is to write my sermons with this program. So then I will get used to it before I have to take comps.
The most awkward thing so far is actually speaking my thoughts out loud. I’m so used to typing my thoughts that speaking them is odd.
And then there’s the editing, I don’t have it completely figured out yet. But a few mouse movements and keyboard strokes go a long way.
