hello to all my friends this is going to be interesting to see if this works. I am using a speech to text mechanism to make this blog site. I am talking to a microphone that is connected to my computer while I talk it is taking my words and turning them into words. Sometimes it will make mistakes but it is surprising how accurate it is I have not. I forgot to put a period after the last it is. You have to say the word. For it to print up. Paragraph

I have been feeling quite well lately. We have been getting out some. Yesterday we spent the day with Suzanne and just Barb Suzanne and I because Jamie had taken the two kids in Seattle spend the weekend with his mother in that we had a nice long visit the night before we took Susie out for dinner the first time the three of us have been out for dinner just us for maybe five or 10 years. You will have to be patient with me as I sometimes forget to say the word.. I need to say the word. Oh

I have much to learn to make this work correctly but up to this point in the letter I have not made any corrections. As you speak the words appear. If the computer makes a mistake you can override the mistake with normal word processing.

As you can see it's pretty accurate I will probably be blogging a lot more. It is much easier to talk than to type I. I can talk at a very rapid speed and the computer still does a very good job reading what I am saying it is almost spooky I forget to keep single word. I need to say the word PER I OD when I come to the end of a line.

The computer will take numbers as well as letters. Example 12345. I will now say the alphabet to see how well it does. A BCDEFGH I JKLMNOPQRS the WXYZ. It made a mistake with the letters T and you. It cannot tell the difference between the letter you or the word you mistake it cannot tell the difference between the difference between the letter you send the word you.

We saw Les Miserables on television last night. It was fantastic. It was done in London with a 500 voice choir for the 25th anniversary of the production lateness is still showing into theaters in London and one in Chicago plus numerous showings all of the cut. Country backspace backspacwhoop. Oh well

Does anybody have any good books to suggest. We think we thought that 'Unbroken' was outstanding. We did in our book club and everybody really liked the book. Her current book is wait till next year. It is a book a memoir about a girl growing up in Brooklyn and her memories of the Brooklyn Dodgers.

I hope spring is here. It is sunny and warm out today but we have had lots of free cool weather for the last several weeks.

I think I'm going to like this speech to text is available from skews the it is available by a company called Dragon DR AGL and and it costs about $50. You just install it on your computer and put on your headsets in start talking.
The headset comes with the software it is easy to install. It takes you through a bit of a tutorial where you read into the computer so it begins to recognize your voice. I've only had it for several days now but I am very very impressed how you can talk to a machine and have your words turn the print.

Concerning my Kindle that I got for Christmas; I like it better every day. Some of my friends have one and they like there's justice much as I like my. I do not know anybody has one doesn't like it a great deal. I think this is going to be the reading device of the future. For better or for worse it will be the end of bookstores and libraries. There is no need to cut down all these trees can make thousands and thousands of books and all can be done online less-expensive and faster. You can order a book on your Kindle and 15 seconds later the book in your Kindle ready for you to read. You can change the print size. Almost every book comes with a concordance just like a Bible concordance so you can look up passages and search for words at the flip of finger. For instance if you wanted to type in the word fight and war it would search to every book on your Kindle may be 1000 books and show which books have that those two words in the book and how many times it's in the book then you can click on that book and it'll start skipping through all the places in the book where those words appear and highlight them so there's no need to underline anymore you just as you have a thought in your mind can just type in couple words from a thought and it will find it is quite amazing much more handy than using a concordance with the Bible staff to look it up and spell the word. Also with a concordance you can only look up one word. They cost about $125 and they hold 3500 books. There are about 1,500,000 books available on the Kindle for free. There is another 60,000 books available that you can buy to put on your Kindle. They usually cost at the most nine $nine. 99 each. I downloaded the complete works of William Shakespeare for free it took. It took about 20 seconds to download the books into my Kindle. I should be a salesman for them. Paragraph

I've rambled on long enough time to say signoff I've only made one. I've only made one correction everything I said in this letter so you can see that it's very very accurate. It will improve in accuracy as I learn how to use it.

Best wishes to all, enter

I admit, I'm rather envious.

Wow!! Didn't know something like that was available - especially something that is easy to use. Almost done with Unbroken - they have been liberated and on their way home. Great book. Take care - love you - Margaret
