This is how fast I can dictate using DNS

I can dictate 384 wpm, because that is the very fastest that I can speak,
and still have another human understand what I am saying. That is the
honest truth. I could show anyone in person this feat, if they were here
beside me.

Neither my hardware nor my software limited me, only the rate at which I
talked limited me.

My computer is a run of the mill model that has a 2.4 GHz Intel core 2 duo
CPU. Ram is 4 GB.

OS is Vista Ultimate, with all the patches.

Speech recognition app' is Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 10.0 - the full
"medical" version, which is far from being ideal to run this sort of
speed test.

Reports from speech experts claim that the lower cost regular $900 version
of Dragon is speedier.

Now after I dictated 24 repetitions of:

"now is the time for all good men
to come to the aid of their country"

....which took me 60 seconds to speak 384 words, or 6.4 words per second.

By contrast, Fran Capo, the worlds fastest female talker, can speak twice as
fast as I can, speaking more complex words.

She was timed at 603.32 words in 54.2 seconds, which works out to be
slightly over 667 wpm.

She was also using Dragon Naturally Speaking an you could understand every
single word she said.

It did not seem to matter whether I gulped a breath at the end of each
repetition, or spoke two repetitions and gulped a bigger breath.

I could not break the 384 wpm barrier either way.

No text mistakes, of course.

Just to be certain, I ran two more one-minute tests, and again there were
not any text errors in the resulting text.

If I had grossly mispronounced any word, of course there would be a text
mistake, but I am very careful to speak distinctly when I am running this
test, even though I am speaking as rapidly as I can.

My guess is that at least half the people who are modestly proficient with
Dragon would be able to duplicate the results I achieved, regarding both
speed and accuracy of this test.

BTW, when I was dictating my 60 second speed test with Dragon, no text
appeared on the screen until I stopped dictation at the end of the 60
seconds.

This is normal, with all modern speech apps that I have used in this sort of
test.



Next I will put WSR to the test. (Vista Speech)

Should be interesting to see how it fares, compared to Dragon.

I anticipate it should perform about the same as regards speed, I do not
know about accuracy, however. That remains to be seen.

Hey ****TARD. Do you see a closed thread? HA HA HA HA. You will be
