I wish I could just dictate and my computer will type the words I say

I have heard of this feature as well but it is not that accurate and satisfying as typing yourself and the time taken to correct the wrong; by the time you would have wasted a bit of a precious time already. I recommend you sticking to the traditional typing, sweetie. It is more faster this way and time efficient.

I also have that kind of idea, because sometimes my hand get tired of typing and how i wish i have a microphone and i will just dictate what words i wanted my compute to type. You know it is possible since some people created a robot and cellphone with television, why not this?

it would be a lot faster, easier and comfortble typing it in. just imagie if stat blabbering and you want to edit your words then you will have ot memorize a lot of commands and all just to edit a word , what if it was a phrase. so you have to keep track of it's position. i do not think it would work. the computer still does not have the complexity of the human brain.have a nice day! nice one.

Yes, the Microsoft version is complicated but not sophisticated. It uses American English of course and you have to maintain a low voice which makes it very complicated. Well, many internet users around the globe haven't really discovered the advantanges of this feature but I hope Microsoft will introduce it to the public and make people aware. And yes, offer it free.

you are not only a hardworker but also a dreamer. LOL. the technology is always updating. Innovation is very common. all discovery now we think it the past as impossible but now we own one of it. We don't know yet if you wish will be granted. Hopefully it will.

OH! What an interesting wishful thinking. I also wish like you that I could just dictate and my computer could type my spoken words. How easy and fast it would be, once the computer starts taking dictation from us....LOL! But till such time, it happens, we will have to make do with the current arrangements, we will have to think the responses and would need to type those with our own hands.

There are talk / text programs, my last computer came with the software already installed but it was never accurate. I spent more time proof reading and changing incorrect words than actually reading the text. It might sound like a great idea if you can get it to recognize your voice and do an accurate transcription but it is time consuming to proof read, add HTML etc.
