I’m trying something new this morning. I ordered a copy of MacSpeech dictate, a dictation program that allows you to speak into a headset and watch your words appear on the screen or in the document. I promise, this is exactly how the program responded after about 10 minutes of training. It can’t quite seem to figure out how to spell my name, but I think it’s doing a pretty good job.
Did you read the story about the little Chinese girl who was not allowed to appear at the opening ceremonies even though she actually sang the song to honor the motherland? Chinese officials thought she wasn’t attractive enough, so they had another little girl lips sink and smile for the camera. What sort of message does this send to children? At six, they are not pretty enough? That’s so sad.
(MacSpeech needs to learn how to spell lip-synch — oh my, you got it right this time!)
My husband and I are enjoying connecting with old friends on face book. Amazing, how connected the Internet has made us. My husband doesn’t even know how to turn the computer on, but he’s enjoying the face spoke experience.
I’m working hard on the work in progress, and beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Can’t wait.
MacSpeech has done pretty well. I’m impressed.
