hello everybody
I just wanted to tell you that today I have purchased the voice-activated program by Dragon. :-)

I can honestly say that it was easy to set up and I am now sat in my chair with my arms folded not touching the keyboard once :-)

thank you to everyone who responded to my last thread and recommended this program.

Love Juliepf X

    thanks Val, Tony, Toni and mig

    It really is making it easier for me :-) I will admit that sometimes it does type a wrong word, but that could be my accent, and I all so have to wear the headphones under my chin LOL as I can't reach the top of my head to put them on, but hey at least it doesn't mess my hair up LOL.

    I did try typing a Microsoft Word document yesterday, but for some reason it wouldn't type on that and opened works instead. I also found that it took quite a bit of time to type on that program. It does seem to work better on this forum and on e-mails.I wondered if it was because I chose the cheaper package and I haven't installed the full Microsoft Word program I only have the starter program that came with the computer.

    I am sure with a little more practice me and the Dragon are going to get along fine.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend and this lovely weather
    Julie PF X :-)

    I am so pleased it's working well for you, my lovely pink flamingo. It's good when problems can be solved relatively easily.

    I expect you'll now be writing a modern day War and Peace - or something equally long :lol:

    I do the headphones-under-chin look, too. Do you think we might become fashion icons?
