> Hello all
> I arranged a demo of Dragon naturally speaking, a voice recognition 
> software at my office.
> I was very much impressed with the results of it.
> To tell something about it, This software, sort of replaces the use of the 
> keyboard. You can do all  functioning of the computer, navigating, 
> editing, working on spreadsheet etc.
> Actually, I was looking it as an accessability tool by which we can give 
> rest to our hands and save us from RSI related problems, regarding which 
> we discussed on the list a few days back.
> However, I discovered it could be very effectively used as a productivity 
> tool. One can dictate at very high speeds, much more than what a person 
> can type.
> The accuracy rate is also very good. Without any training it recognised my 
> dictation to almost 95%.
> One can do all document formatting including making tables with voice. One 
> can also use it with Excell very well.
> The commands used too are very intutive and it would take just a few 
> minutes to do most of the operation.
> I checked on the price which is Rs.14,999. I enquired if he could give us 
> for a special price. He readily agreed to give us a 30% discount. He would 
> give furthur discount depending on volume.
> The package includes a special noise cancelling microphone which itself 
> costs arround Rs. 1,500 upwards. 1 license permitts you to make 2 
> installations like, a decktop and laptop.
> This can be ideal for students, teachers, reporters, translators, 
> transcriptionists, lawyers etc. It will also be a good tool for those who 
> do a lot of correspondence.
> For a brief demo, you can download this file:
> Download Link (Public): 
> http://up-file.com/download/6fcb73708281/DRAGON-1.zip.html
> It contains the dictation voice file and the dragon recognised text file
> This sunday noon you can also participate in a demo on Skype by our member 
> who is using it extensively.
> If you wish to participate in it, please give your Skype id on:
