Pro & Cons: Using Nuance Dragon Naturally Speaking to Write Blogs

Bloggers across the world who remain within white hat borders have attempted to develop new ways of saving time and energy when creating new blog posts. They presumed that even when busy with work or home activities it is still possible to create original blog posts and fresh content using voice recognition software. Cleaning your desk space? No problem, speak while doing your chores and the software records your voice in a text format. Eating your lunch? Record your brilliant ideas just by speaking your mind.
We tried using the software to write a few blogs for our clients. It was quite amazing to see the software recognize speech patterns and record text which can be copy/pasted into any text management software. Some issues we have found with the software is that it functions best only in a least noise environment and when you dictate a lot of text and the software makes mistakes the writer has to go back to the text and make editing alterations, which may take more time than just writing the article text from scratch. If the writer can set him/herself up in a noiseless environment and tune the microphone voice recognition to at least 97% then this program can assist bloggers to saving tremendous time, if not then this might be another useless purchase. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Best tool for blogging is the keyboard, hands down.

Here is how Nuance Communications convinces their clients with software benefits:

  • The fastest and most accurate way to interact with your computer; Dragon dramatically boosts your personal productivity and helps you realize your full potential (agreeable)
  • A personalized, voice-driven experience; Dragon gets even more accurate as it learns the words and phrases you use the most, spelling even difficult words and proper names correctly (somewhat agreeable)
  • An intuitive design and helpful tutorials make it easy to get started and easy to master (somewhat useful)
  • The ability to create, format and edit documents by voice allows you to think out loud and break through barriers to creativity (mostly possible)
  • Dictation of text anywhere where you normally type within popular applications enables greater productivity and efficient multi-tasking (mostly possible)
