TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
1. Pentium III and Athlon processors have instructions for speech
recognition on the chip.
2. To run just a word processor and a speech recognition program, 128
MB RAM minimum. To run simultaneous apps, 256 MB or better.
3. Stick with Windows 95, 98 or NT until patches become available for
2000 and ME.
4. Find a package that has a quick training curve. L&H and Dragon
require only five minutes to train your voice.
5. Train your voice twice.
6. Make sure the package you choose has a money-back guarantee.
How come nobody mentions L&H? They are in cahoots with Microsoft. Word
users take heed!

We tried the IBM program and two versions of the Dragon Naturally
Speaking s/w without enough success to be worthwhile, using an IBM
System and a Compaq 5030 model. I checked with others, and found only a
couple of people who had what they considered to be success with their
systems. On the other hand, I found many othes who gave up trying after
period of many disappointments. - Herm
