Type Like The Wind

Blogging from work. Got a transcript just before that was due over two hours ago. I had to break the typing barrier and actually learn how to type backwards in time.

See you yesterday!

I was forced into using DragonDictate by necessity, but you guys should look into it if you need to transcribe lots of stuff at work... once you've got the training done for the computer program, all you need to do is talk to a microphone and everything comes up on screen. Voice recognition software was initially made for that kind of stuff anyway

Um, that would put me out of a job ...

Rachy said...

how so? what do you actually do?

TimT said...

Transcribe radio interviews, press conferences, and the like. It is a deeply satisfying job. No, really ...

Rachy said...

That sounds like it does have the capacity to be quite interesting, depending on the content of what you have to transcribe... but seriously, wouldn't voice recognition software make that job a lot more quicker?

Rachy said...

ahhhhhhhhhh, I get it, the quicker the job can get done the less employees the company needs?

TimT said...

If they found out a way to do it, they would. The voice recognition software would probably have a problem with radio static, different voices, and the large amount of technical terms that some of the interviewees come out with.

It can be interesting ...

you'd be surprised at how well developed voice recognition software is, the only problem is that you need to do a fair amount of training... I can't imagine radio static or technical terms interfering, but if there is too much noise in the background that can hinder things somewhat... whatever you do sounds interesting anyway, I guess it's what you make it
