This is just a simple video to show Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 Preferred running on a brand new Toshiba Laptop (U405-S2856 with Microsoft Vista and 3gb of ram).

I installed the Microsoft Updates, Installed Dragon Naturally Speaking 10, and then did the absolute minimum amount of voice training with the software, which took about 5-7 minutes reading some goofy(funny) chapter from a novel that reminded me of the better days of Seinfeld.

The video in this article is a little hazy as I do not have any screen capture software running on this new machine yet, so I just used my digital camera to record the screen.

Regardless, the software and the computer did an excellent job.  I only found 1 mistake after the fact.  (see if you can spot it!)

The actual text of the article is below, in case you want to compare it to the video or something.  🙂

These are the first words that Dragon NaturallySpeaking will transcribe. I have just started a brand-new laptop installed all the Microsoft updates, and install Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 on this machine. I did the simplest possible voice training method that I could find in the system which only took a couple of minutes and now I am saying those initial words into my computer, and my computer seems to be transcribing everything I say extremely accurately.

I am doing this because I wanted to see just how well a brand-new computer could work with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10. I have a new computer, a new Logitech headset, and a new version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 preferred. As you can see from this video, I don’t think the software has made a single mistake yet. I’ve seen Dragon NaturallySpeaking work on a number of occasions, but I have to say that this might just be one of the most impressive occasions that I have seen to date. This is just amazing!
