I can use the mic on my iPad to write this post

Dear readers,

I just discovered that my keyboard on my iPad has a microphone function which will actually type what I speak. It recognizes to place a period, comma, question mark, or exclamation (though I just had to type those). I’m going to be playing with this over the next few posts. I’m probably still going to have to do some editing, obviously, but I think it might work pretty well for getting my text onto the screen. Even though I’m a fast typist,I think this is kind of interesting. It may also be one of the reasons why I may be finding it very difficult to find a job in the secretarial, office clerical, and administrative assistant positions. I’ve often wondered in the recent years just how long it would take voice recognition software to become decent enough to actually be useful to use. It looks as if that time may have come. I just noticed that every time I get a notification, the microphone goes off. This could be a problem for actually trying to get something done, if people insist on liking all of my posts on Facebook a lot. There also seems to be some kind of a time limit I’m not sure what it is but it doesn’t just stay on continuously. I’m testing it out as you’re reading this or should I say as I’m typing this, and so far it’s maybe it doesn’t have a time. Whoops, yes it does!

Well I think I board you and I are in for now. Okay. I think I’m going to leave that last sentence and let you try to figure out what I was really trying to say there. Tell next time.

  1. Clever little ipad! My Samsung Galaxy tab 3 lite does the same thing, but I haven’t tried it out. Years ago, a lady told me it was getting harder to get freelance work in her area because of the voice recognition software. I tried training Lotus software years ago, and it had a hard time understanding my Aussie twang and I expect this one will take some training, too! I see it has an Australian English dictionary, so that’s start.

    I haven’t visited here for yonks, Suzy, but I always think of you and your wonderful quilts every week when I get my Spotlight emails – especially if there are quilting specials. 😀 That pariticular ‘gunna’ activity of mine hasn’t come to fruitition yet. [sigh] All the best for 2015. ❤

    1. Hey, I’m like so thank you, Christine. I recently went through “Blogs I follow” to reduce the number of emails I got, and even though, I’ll admit I haven’t frequented your blog a lot recently, you are one I decided to continue receiving updates on Mondays! Seriously, love your blog!

      1. Thanks Suzy. It’s hard to keep up with too many, so many lovely blogs about. I love your blog too. It’s always interesting and I enjoy both words and images. I blitzed everyone in the 2014 comments tally, didn’t I, chatterbox me!! LOL. 😀
