Just did a thousand words of dictation…



Very pleased, actually.

Today I used Microsoft Word and it did a pretty good job of proofreading and correcting its own translations.

Example…I said, “I also like the way it lets me stop in midsentence”. Its first translation included ‘get me stop in midsentence’ and it corrected itself to the desired phrasing.

What else did I like?

It’s very patient. It waits quietly while I gather my thoughts.

Suggestion: Experiment with dictation when you’re in brainstorming/prewriting/outlining mode. You’re not as locked into dialogue and its added punctuation requirements nor are you weighed down with the same level of perfectionism.
