For anyone who is conducting research, the ability of voice recognition software to streamline the required amount of “work” that has to be carried out, likely, has the ability to increase an individual’s productivity, whether her or she is learning disabled or not.
The reason why this is true is that, as a person is conducting research, he or she has to use his or her brain to conceptually reckon the data that is being used, before anything is synthesized.
Then, following synthesis, a record of what has occurred, including what has been synthesized, in what amounts, and in what proportion to any other agent or agents has been involved, as well, needs to be reported upon and documented.
If the individual who is conducting the experiment or research has a learning disability, especially if the LD is short-term memory hampering, the person’s process of conducting the experiment and recording results will easily able to be inaccurate, by virtue of the learning disability’s presence.
However, if the Memory-Compromised researcher has been enabled to produce an on-task, effective Voice Recognition Software user profile that has been uploaded to a handheld device, the researcher can be fully enabled to conduct his or her research and record findings and observations, immediately, to the handheld device, whereupon the observations that were made can be easily and instantaneously saved, e-mailed to his or her personal e-mail, at home or at work account, and/or can be saved to a repository in the cloud.
This way, the memory-compromised individual has less chance of losing track of what has been accomplished by him or her, especially if the individual uses a tracking system that includes time- or date-specific notations.
The LD individual can use whatever system is at his or her closest avail, never having to worry about files being lost forever, simply by making sure to save…Save…SAVE!
01. Open a blank Microsoft Word document on your computer’s screen.
02. Open the file or page that you want to take notes from.
03. Now that you have the blank page open next to the “data page”, it is much more easy for you to take notes.
04. As well, you never have to turn a page or risk losing track of where you are, in the information from which you are taking notes.
05. Now, using voice recognition software to take notes allows you to speak the information into a microphone and have the wording of what you have just spoken flash, immediately up onto your computer’s screen, into an open “Word” document.
06. All you have to do is monitor the wording, to assure that the exact information you intend to be dictated is what is flashed up onto your computer’s screen.
To let you know, when I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking! for dictation I rarely have to make any corrections, at all, unless I dictate over one and a half pages of text. Its that accurate!
Also, the fact is that I don’t have the most-recent version of the program. I am going to acquire the latest version, very soon, and I know that it is going to be amazing!
