Now we all know that the movie industry takes a lot of artistic licensee when they show technology on TV. Anyone who has watched an episode of Criminal Minds and seen the miracles that the research tec manages to glean from the world of databases will know what I mean. "Garcia? see if the Unsubs next door neighbor was getting a copy of the new york times on a Wednesday?" 5 seconds later "He was? and it was delivered to his back door? Ok Thanks"

All that aside

A friend showed me how good dragon dictate was now and I regularly use Google now. So we know they have made great strides in voice recognition.

My question (Damm he goes on !)

Does sanyone use a dictaphone type device that after dictation they holster in a desktop mount or it seamlessly transfers by wireless or Bluetooth the recording. That then opens text pad that transposes the spoken word to the text pad. Without reinventing the wheel.

Are we there yet?

It appears we have come quite a way

It appears we apparently have come quite a widely with the voice recorder to the printed word on the computer screen I'm using a small Sony device and after several Mark Frost bows almost an hour of setting up Dragon naturally speaking and also a program called sound organiser for the Sony device calibrating then teaching the software my voice I was able to produce this recording which then transcribes into the words you see here

The above text was created after as I say about an hour of setup and only 4-5minutes of training . Ther are some mistakes as you see "Mark Frost  bows"?? Also I have not put in any punctuation or new lines. But the result in general is really quite useable. My gear was

Sony ICD-AX412F
and Dragon Naturally Speaking

You are English (according to your signature).
Did you use the UK version of Dragon, or the AU/NZ version, or the US English version?
