Re: Windows Speech Recognition and JAWS


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

I have heard of people using the default Windows 7 speech recognition engine. I've heard it is not quite as good as Naturally Speaking 10.
I have Dragon Naturally Speaking 10, and intend to install Version 11 tomorrow.
I'm told it is the same engine that Siri uses on the iPhone. If so, then I wouldn't settle for anything less.
On my iPhone, Siri has made a total of 2 mistakes in the 5 weeks since I've had her. Vastly, vastly, vastly, vastly, vastly better than Dragon Naturally Speaking 10.
I'll let you know after installation.
Your friend will need a headset microphone, but she gets one for free with the Pro version (perhaps Preferred too).
Allegedly, no training is needed for Version 11. The training was the main reason for J-SAY.
I used to use J-SAY, but the security settings in my law firm made it impossible successfully to install J-SAY. So, I bought it for nothing, and haven't tried it for at least 3 years. Naturally Speaking works just fine without J-SAY.

Subject: Windows Speech Recognition and JAWS

Hello All,



I have a friend who recently hurt her hand and wants to use speech
recognition to enter text into a Word 2010 document. Using the traditional
keyboard is making her hand hurt a lot and she thought the speech
recognition software that comes automatically loaded with Windows 7 would
help her. Does anyone know if she will be able to use speech recognition to
enter the text and JAWS to review it to ensure it is working. My friend is
another college student and it is very important for her to get the
information correct that the computer types and she wants to make sure to
review it for accuracy.
