A love letter to a Dragon

Hello again Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I never thought I should say this but, I’m actually really, really, really glad to be back. I’ve been trying for a while now to use the Danish speech recognition software called Dictus, and it’s just nowhere near as amazing as you are. I mean, I’m just talking to you and you are writing it down! it’s like you know what I’m saying! With Dictus I have to learn to use the software, teach it to understand me and then still speak in a funny way. With you, you’re just learning what I’m saying and I can speak almost exactly as I always do. In fact, right now, I have to fight a rising urge to just start laughing because I feel so free. Mwuahahahahaaaa!!!

Ahemn, sorry.

Okay, sure, you make a few mistakes here and there. It’s to be expected. But you have to tools to correct those mistakes too, usually in a quick and simple way. Dictus… doesn’t. Or, at least, none that I have found so far.

I really wanted to like Dictus.

I really, really, really wanted to like it.

I need to like it.

But I don’t. I hate it. Maybe I wouldn’t, if I hadn’t met you first Dragon. But I did meet you first and now? Now I am sad, sad panda.

Disclaimer: I am not actually a panda. That was what we in the wordsmithing business call a lie. And yes, Dragon recognized “wordsmithing business” first try.
