[bksvol-discuss] Re: OT the joys of using speech recognition software

Well, Doug, it's certainly weird. Even when you're speaking clearly, I guess
it's a hit or miss as to whether the computer will understand you or not.
That would bug me if there was multiple mistakes when I knew or thought I
was speaking clearly. Regards, Kim Friedman.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] OT the joys of using speech recognition software

I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking for all of my typing and sometimes you get
some very strange, and often humorous, responses when it misunderstands what
you said.

I just had a very funny "speak-o".
I was dictating what Valerie wanted me to call in to the Chinese restaurant.
First, it did not do well with "egg foo Yung", but that wasn't very
interesting.
Next I tried to say "crab Rangoon" and it understood me to say
"crackbrained". Now I don't know very much about Chinese food, but I
certainly know there's a lot of difference between crab Rangoon and
crackbrained. But, maybe there's some strange connection there...

Thought you guys might find this funny.
