Voice recognition software deserves another listen

Some corporate lawyers who write frequently should find voice recognition software to their liking (See my post of Aug. 26, 2005 on Dragon NaturallySpeaking.). I create the first draft of many of my posts by breathing fire into Nuance’s Dragon® Naturally Speaking® and have just upgraded to Version 9.0. The voice recognition software works quite accurately, especially when I dictate quotations. It is a product of Nuance Communications, based in Burlington, MA.

Another voice recognition vendor is Crescendo Systems. That program, built on the SpeechMagic™ technology of Philips, claims that it corrects or adapts to hesitations, non-speech and redundant phrases. In general, improvements in processing power of CPUs and improved software technology will keep honing the edge of this kind of software.
