Transcript of the audio/video for January 14th

Eoin Treacy's view

I promised last week I would experiment with dictation software so subscribers could have the benefit of the video in written format.

I’m trying to teach Dragon Professional 15 how to take down what I say, but the results are far from perfect. Here is the original transcript and the corrected version which took a couple of hours to amend. The software can purportedly learn from documents, so I am feeding it the corrected transcripts to try and teach it how I speak.

I’ll persist through the rest of the week and hopefully I will be able to get better results with more examples to customise the natural language processor. However, it is not practical to spend two hours correcting copy that takes twenty minutes to speak.
