you can make anything into an opportunity.
For example today I had this very unpleasant operation on my phone actually that was my thumb not my phone. as you may have guessed comma I am now writing using a piece of voice recognition software.
It’s a Google Chrome extension. this makes me happy for two reasons. the pain pills are not one of them.
the first reason is that I have been wanting to experiment more with Google Chrome extensions.
At some point we are planning on using Chrome extensions 4 for our game making camp. this is a great opportunity for me to start learning more about how extensions work.
The second reason this is a great opportunity is that I have wondered for some time what I’m going to do when I get old.
I’m just not sitting around knitting type of person. my hand has been bothering me for quite some time. it’s only a matter of time until my other hand starts to bother me as well. So I’ve been wondering about this comma what could I do if I didn’t work.
Now all kinds of people including all of my relatives most of my friends tell me all of the time that I should not work so much. I mention that I did not ask any of these people their opinion? You see the issue isn’t that I can’t think of things to do instead of work. the point is that I like to work and the thought that I couldn’t do it anymore is a bit depressing.
There are a few drawbacks of read and write for Google Chrome which you may have already detected. One is that it has a rather random view of capitalization. I’m sure that if you read this post closely you can identify other drawbacks. for example like Siri it often misinterpret your words. I left most of the errors here so that you could see. I did fix a few where the sentence made absolutely no sense.
I found it works better if you speak more slowly.
So far it hasn’t been too bad. it was super easy to install and I figured out how to use the speech to text by watching 2 minute YouTube video.
On the other hand haha that’s a joke since I only have one hand – it seems like the only way to get the premium features is to be at a school that licenses those at the school or maybe classroom level. right now I’m using the 30 day trial version.
The other problem I have found is that sometimes the microphone just randomly quits working. toggle it off and on to fix Problem.
2 move 2A new line All you need to do is say those words which ironically since I wanted actually those words in the sentence I had to take them otherwise it would have gone to a well you know.
now if you read this you can see it kind of makes me look like a cross between a teenager using text-speak and someone with a very poor grasp of grammar and spelling. however I think that much of that could be improved with practice and getting 2 no the software better. we’ll see if with practice the voice recognition can be accurate at a faster speed because this slow pace is pretty annoying. the invisible developer just told me that I sound like a bit from Find old radio show called the slow talkers of America.
New line I also think it would be really really difficult to write code using this with all of the special characters required like square brackets and curly brackets parentheses etcetera etcetera.
After a few weeks tough trying this out I’m going to check out dragon I have a friend who is visually impaired who uses that so I’m going to ask her 2 show me because I’m sure she knows all of the special features as I believe she even used it to write her thesis.. You’re line
If you have any other suggestions either 4 Chrome extensions in general or on using Speech-to-Text software please post it and the comments.
