Voice Recognition Software – Use Your Mouth To Out Type a Touch Typist
Transcribe of “Voice Recognition Software – Use Your Mouth To Out Type a Touch Typist”
Hi guys, Neil Waterhouse. I’m a lousy typist. I’ve been using computers since I was 13. I’m now as my kids continually like to remind me, 53. That’s 40 years of using computers. I’m still a two-finger typist. However, thanks to the very latest voice recognition software, I can now out-type many touch typers by simply talking into a microphone instead of bashing around a keyboard and a mouse. Let me explain and show you over.
Over the last 40 years of using computers
Over the last 40 years of using computers, I’ve experimented over the years many times with all types of voice recognition software. But up until around 2017, I found voice recognition software pretty much useless, pretty much rubbish. The problem of course was accuracy or better still the complete lack of accuracy.
It was only after 2017 that we got to the 95% accuracy mark which for me was the game-changer
It was only after 2017 that we got to the 95% accuracy mark which for me was the game-changer. There’s 95% accuracy plus the ability to train the software to your own voice and train to your own vocabulary as well as enable accuracy to be over 99%. Now, most people these days have experimented with some sort of voice recognition software like Siri, in their mobile phones, or voice recognition software in their car GPS or audio system. And for many people, myself included, these experiences were frustrating to say the least.
I also had the same experience with the voice recognition of my car and my mobile phone.
I also had the same experience with the voice recognition of my car and my mobile phone. And most of the time I don’t even bother as I know there’s a very high chance that the voice recognition software in that device will not understand what I’ve said. However, voice recognition software for computers today is a whole different animal as I’ll show you. The big, big difference is that you can train the voice recognition software on your computer to your voice. So that for every word that it gets wrong or does not understand, you can train it. So it learns that word and does not ever make that mistake ever again.
The big difference
This is the big difference. And combined with the latest algorithms, this makes voice recognition software today a complete game-changer to whatever it has been. A lot of companies these days are now jumping on the bandwagon of voice recognition, including Google. If you’re using say Google Docs for example as your word processor, the voice recognition software is built in and Google Docs is free.

To enable voice recognition, Just go to the Tools, then scroll down to Voice typing. On the left, you just click on the microphone and start talking, which I’ll show you in a sec. Google offers many voice commands and to find these commands, get to Help, Docs Help, and search for voice typing. You’ll find stacks of voice commands that you can use including new paragraph, bold, italics, full-stop, in different colors, et cetera.
Here’s a quick demonstration using the voice recognition software built into Google Docs
Here’s a quick demonstration using the voice recognition software built into Google Docs to create a description for an item listed on eBay and Amazon. This inflatable kayak is sporty and fun with a streamlined design for easy paddling, full-stop. The bright color and sports graphics make the kayak highly visible in the water, full-stop. Great for discovering the lakes and mild rivers, full-stop. This sports kayak is perfect for one adult, full-stop. Lightweight and compact, full-stop. As you can see, Google does a good job. However, I don’t find it to be as accurate as Dragon Dictate.
Dragon Dictate and made by a company called Nuance
The voice recognition software that I use is Dragon Dictate and made by a company called Nuance. I’ll put a link below the video. Dragon Dictate is not free like the Google products, but for me it’s all about accuracy. And I find Dragon Dictate gives the most accuracy as it also has the ability that you can train it for any word that it gets wrong. So that it’s continually learning your voice and your vocabulary. Here’s a quick demonstration again using Google Docs.

Voice recognition software can save you a lot of time
So the bottom line is if you’re not a fast typist, voice recognition software can save you a lot of time. It can also save the joints in your fingers and hands from the continuous pounding of typing a keyboard and clicking the mouse button. That’s all for this week.
