    I'm officially a dictator. I just bought Dragon's dictation software. OMG, it works great! My first rule as dictator; if you spend any time behind a keyboard, you must buy this software. It's the best $60 bucks I ever spent!

    This post was written with Dragon's dictation software. My keyboard just got relegated to the trash bin.

    Amen and Amen again....I have been using the newest for some time and it is superb! I used it many years ago as well (versions 4-6) and those were demanding programs, with hideously complex algorithms to handle the voice recognition. Back in those days, one had to read very lengthy prepared material examples to "train" your dragon....these days, about 4 minutes of reading does the trick....more to recognize regional dialects.....

    Hello,

    By saying "period" or "question mark" or "comma" or "Open/Close Quote" etc. VERY effective and efficient....

    You might want to keep it Carl even if it's just for the delete and backspace keys.:D
