image This evening I saw something rather surprising.  I saw a television advertisement for Dragon NaturallySpeaking.  This surprised me a little bit because you don’t often times these software products advertised on TV.  Since I use the product myself, I’m using it right now, I am not surprised that someone made the investment to advertise a product on TV.

There’s one sure thing about Dragon Naturally Speaking 9, this voice recognition software works very well.  I have written about it several times, I’ve written reviews, I’ve done beta testing work, I’ve even put together video tutorials and other experiments with the software.

Dragon Naturally Speaking enables me to type faster and it enables me to type without having to use my hands or my eyes to look at my computer.

It is one of the best software products I’ve ever purchased.  It could use a few minor improvements here there are, but it is very good and definitely worth the money.  It’s not terribly expensive the software goes and you can buy it for $100.  I would classify that as cheap software, but it is definitely affordable for what you can do with it and how much you can save your hands and eyes when you do a lot of computer work.

If you have thought about using software and have any questions about it, please feel free to leave a comment.  I don’t know the answer I will be more than happy to experiment for you.  If it helps, I will even put together the video example is that you can seethe results of my test.  I will then publish that her in a blog where you can view it.  Just leave me a comment with your request and I will see what I can do and see what I can show you with Dragon Naturally Speaking 9.

Working with Voice recognition is much easier than typing, with practice it can be much easier than using a mouse.  One of the biggest benefits of voice recognition, is the decrease in eyestrain that you experience when using voice recognition.  You find yourself not looking at the computer screen as much, especially for people that work with laptops.
