Great Last-Minute Holiday Gifts

You may have heard of Dragon Naturally Speaking, a piece of software that transcribes every word you speak into a microphone attached to your computer into the written word.

This is the fastest way to "write" because you can speak off the top of your head. After you're finished, you simply edit for style and clarity and voila, you have just completed an article to submit to a magazine or publish on the web. You can even use it for writing a book.

Now, that this software is available for the Mac, I finally had the chance to try it. (Of course, it is also available for the PC and if you read on, you'll find a link for a great once-per-year special discount.)

I have tried voice recognition software in the past and been sorely disappointed. This time, though, I had a great experience and have started using this software to "write" all my articles.

Happy Holidays.
