Ah technology for you, it's amazing in a way how lazy we can be.

I use a electronic muscle machine (well it's quite costly to go to the gym here, we are talking about around 1000 joining fee and 150/month), and i use wireless mouse to be able to change seinfeld episode on the computer when i lie in my bed using the machine, and i used to have a wireless network, that ment i could sit anywere i wanted and watch them, and if would buy what you have i could pretty much anything.

This might help in our struggle [webmasterworld.com]

How about IBM ViaVoice v.7? Does this work well? I have a free disc on my desk from a PC mag.

Yeah. Technology. Pretty soon we won't have to move at all. ;)

I've got ViaVoice. It came with an Olympus digital recorder, but I've never hooked it up. One of these days I'll put the time and effort into it.

It did not take me very long to get impressive results with the dragon. I am using it right now. It does really freak out every once in a while and come up with some pretty interesting phrases. When this happens I usually have to shut down and type. Have no idea why it does this.

Don't know anything about ViaVoice but I did some research before I bought dragon and decided this was the one to go with based mostly on reviews.

(I can't believe it actually spells ViaVoice correctly)

They say it's easier to strain your vocal cords than it is to strain your wrists... Might be a good idea to switch back and forth between the microphone and the keyboard.

I've got some bad wrists & have been over researching ViaVoice 10 v NaturallySpeaking6.

I think the winner is ViaVoice right now for several reasons. First, VV comes with a USB mic that bypasses a sound card. NS6 requires a sound card & I don't have one (just onboard), so extra trouble/expense. Second, IBM is offering a $75 rebate on VV USB Pro 10 making it about $125. The mic that comes wit it retials for like $80 alone.

Also, NS doesn't include macro capability except in their $600 version. Macros come with IBM's VV USB Pro 10.

A few years back I worked in a larger organisation. One programmer was successfully using Dragon Dictate (among other things) because he had RSI. Another programmer was provided with Dragon Dictate, and in a very short time developed laryngitis. The second person eventually had to give up work.
