Oh such Fun!!....

I thought I would try and write a blog by just dictating to my computer just to see what would happen, so far so good obviously it does not put in the punctuation but at least the spelling is correct!
I think this is a marvelous idea especially if you have a problem with the keys perhaps you might have broken your finger or arm etc.

as long as you don’t speak too fast the computer can keep up with you.. I think my oh thought I was talking to myself!!

do have a try!…. is great fun but you must remember to switch the microphone on first….. I am using a tablet so it is quite easy to speak into the tablet!


I thought I would end up with a photograph of a breast cancer awareness taken at one of our local garden centres I thought it was worth photographing as it was so pretty what do you think

well what did you think of my little experiment I only had to alter one word which I thought was very good? technology isn’t it amazing?

Well done Angela. You are leading us into new realms of technology! It worked very well, and as you say, ideal for people with arthritis etc. Love the pink garden, so pretty.

A close friend who has diminishing eyesight has found this technique so helpful....she thought her world would be so different when diagnosed with macular degeneration until she was introduced to this method and tried dictating her e- mails. Well done Angela!

Isn't that amazing! Thank you for being a trailblazer. I don't think my laptop has a microphone...
Cancer awareness - well that explains the total pinkness of everything!

Good day one and all I am so pleased you found the blog entertaining......for all those who wish to try...... my tablet which is a Google Nexus 10.has a microphone symbol to my extreme right just above the top of my keyboard , all I have to do is press the symbol and wait while it sets up, it tells me when it is doing this, along the middle of the screen above the keyboard then it will display speak now! (the tablet is on my lap btw)..then off I go!

Stera it was very pink but oh so pretty!
Meadow I have done emails, it is useful when I cannot be bothered to type!
Seaburn I know just what you mean, especially as my OHs hearing is so bad !! I spend the day talking to myself! I have some very interesting conversations!!!!

Technology certainly is amazing. That garden is so pretty. I'm not really a pink person, but that looks really good and is for a good cause.

Oh dear lol that's something I could never do, talk to a machine ... I don't like the sound of my own voice !
and also I don't think the computer would understand our local dialect and accent.

The pink garden is lovely and for a good cause.

It would be no good if you had any kind of local dialect Hywel, I would've to see how it translated it though ......
