Today I'm not typing. Today I'm using voice recognition software! Isn't that exciting; well it will be if it works. These things are supposed to be timesaving devices, they are meant to be faster than typing. I don't type very fast, but I can type a damn sight faster than this software. Oh, the words go in quite fast, but a lot of the time they're not the words I intended. The manual says I'm supposed to speak like a newsreader; clearly, annunciating each word. Does that mean I'm supposed to talk like I've got a pole up my arse?
