Re: talking Desktop Voice recognition Software

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I know Dragon has been around a LONG time, used to be standard on IBM desktops. If I were choosing I think that's what I'd pick.

Shouldn't these have free demos and/or free trial period available?

I had an accident two weeks ago resulting in a broken right arm at the shoulder. I will be unable t use the arn far a few months as it sets, and may not be back to full capacity for about six months. This is a pain as I am right handed and typing this with my left  hand (hunt and peck). I recently purchased a

Logitech PC151 wireless USB noise canceling headset that works great, but Vista’s voice recognition software does not work well in Outlook 2007. I am also seeking voice controls for AutoCAD Architecture 2008. Dragon Naturally Speaking offers no advantage worthwhile to me to justify the cost. I found another called “Talking Desktop” at . If I download it the price drops to $79.00.


Doesanyone know of or have experience with this product, IBM used to have a software to Dragon with a command learning feature. This is what I hope to find.
