Hi Everyone, This is Brett Bumeter from staging-softduit.mystagingwebsite.com. I am here outside of my office today in North Carolina where it’s a little bit breezy and I’m testing out my new wireless Logitech headset. I’m testing it out with Dragon NaturallySpeaking, which is running on my computer in my office right now.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 is capturing my words as I save them from a distance of approximately ten feet at the moment.

I’m attempting to do this in one continuous shot so that you’ll know that there’s no film tricks going on here. To do that I’m using an XShot photo stick, basically a single bar tripod, and I am also utilizing a tape measure to mark the distance from which I’m standing and writing.

255_0358 As you can see right now I’m zoomed out all the way. I am approximately 20 feet away from my laptop which is still continuing to capture the words that I say using my Logitech wireless headset and Dragon NaturallySpeaking.

This headset is supposed to have a range of approximately 33 feet at the extreme.

So I’m walking just a little further out here on my dock to try and get a check of the distance with the system. Now my camera only has a limited zoom capability. So at this point I’m actually about10 feet past the extent of my tape measure

There’s my laptop in the distance.

I’m trying to zoom in and keep this steady. (I tried to edit this from a distance, but could not read the editing box terribly easy. Editing would be best suited for a later time, when you can listen back to the words that you have stated.)

As you can see it’s a little tricky editing from this distance I wouldn’t necessarily recommend using a wireless headset from a distance of 30 feet if you need to edit.

This would be a great way though to do some brainstorming especially if you like to walk while you talk. Personally, that’s exactly how my brain works. I think better when I’m walking around or standing up than I do when I’m sitting down behind a desk.

Now my office coworkers they don’t really seem to mind where I work as long as I feed them enough treats throughout the day. But that’s not necessarily any different from office workers in any environment. So as you can see this actually does work fairly well even from a long distance but it’s a tool and like any tool you have to find the right application for that tool. In this case I think it would be very good for people that are trying to write longform articles, documents or maybe even a novel or something Like in the NaNoWriMo writing contest.

So if you’re looking for a great tool that frees you up from having to work on your computer, behind a desk, locked there with ball and chain, Dragon NaturallySpeaking might be the thing for you, and a wireless headset might even give you additional freedom to get away from your keyboard and away from your computer altogether. I’m Brett Bumeter and I hope you enjoyed this little video.

This may have errors in it, but I wanted to provide it so that you could watch the video and get a sense of how well the microphone worked from a distance.  (the wind did blow or gust up once or twice which might have also played a role)

Everyone does the regular from staging-softduit.mystagingwebsite.com I am here outside of my office today in North Carolina where it’s a little bit breezy and I’m testing out my new wireless Logitech headset I’m testing it out with Dragon NaturallySpeaking which is running on my computer in my office right now

Others headsets boast to have a range of approximately 33 feet at the extreme.

And so I’m walking just a little but further of your my.to try and get a check of the distance with the system now my camera only has a limited zoom capability to the WiMAX 10 feet past the extent of my tape measure

I’m trying to zoom in and keep this study

This would be a great way though to do some brainstorming especially if you like to walk while you talk personally that’s exactly how my brain works I think better when I’m walking around standing up that I do when I’m sitting down behind a desk even when I work from a desk in such a beautiful setting your North Carolina.

Now my office coworkers they don’t really miss early seem to mind where I work as long as them as long as I feed them enough treats drug today but that’s not necessarily any different from office workers in any environment so as you can see this actually does work fairly well even from a long distance but it’s a tool and like any tool you have to find the right application for the right application for that tool in this case I think it would be very good for people that are trying to write longform articles documents or maybe even a novel for something like the nano remote writing contest.

So if you’re looking for a great tool that frees you up from having to work on your computer behind a desk locked in with ball and chain, Dragon NaturallySpeaking might be the thing for you, and a wireless headset might even give you additional freedom not only away from your keyboard away from your computer altogether I broken her and I hope you enjoyed this little video and I hope to see you around soon by this

So there you have it. If you are working with highly technical topics, this is not likely going to be a good fit for transcriptions of medical charts, or legal case analysis for issues with Leptovox, but if you just want to capture some free flow thought, do some brainstorming, and especially if you keep a separate audio file copy of everything you say, this can be a very useful tool, and a lot of fun!
