One man and his dog and his laptop

@ 2004/08/03
Quocirca's man in the field, Jon Collins, takes a hands-on look at voice recognition. Armed with nothing more than a laptop in a rucksack and a dog, he gamely battles to bring you the following:

This is an attempt to dictate a document using voice recognition. I am doing this slightly differently to how I would normally. For a start, I am also walking the dog. Therefore, it is not possible to look at my computer in the normal way, so I have put it in my rucksack. This makes it impossible to see the screen so I have had to resort to other means. I am therefore viewing my laptop screen via a wireless network connection from my Dell Axim PDA.
