I’m participating in a little office experiment called “Trying Out Voice Recognition Software.”¬† So far it’s going…slowly.¬† This is what it’s like:

Me (dictating into microphone): “The patient complained of pain in her right hip.”
Voice recognition software, writing: “The passion corn planted¬† plane in the rye hop.”

Me: “Wait, wait.”

Software: “Whey, white.”

Me (covering microphone): “Dammit!”

Software: “dam hit”

Me, slowly: “The PAYYYYSHENT comPLAYYYned of PAYYYNNN in the RIIIGHHT HHHip”

Software: “The patient complained of pain in the right hip.”

Me, muttering: “I’m just going to type now.”

Software: “Aim just going to tap down”

Me: “dammit!”
