6944Dragon Naturally Speaking for Writing Web Pages
- Dec 5, 2010Hi Folks
I have written webpages for many years in NoteTab using the old
fashioned, and for me very slow, keyboarding way.
The last time I used dictation software was more than a dozen years
ago with experimental software, I believe from HP and Microsoft. It
worked fairly well but was slow and required distinct pauses between
words; and it soon disappeared.
Recently I picked up a copy of DNS Home Version 11 on sale and have
been diligently training it, to the point that it is far faster than
my typing -- even after making any corrections to the dictated output.
The next logical (?) step is to use it with NoteTab when I am adding
information to webpages. I have tested DNS with NTB and they work fine
together for the dictation of words and copying, pasting, closing
The more complex XHTML and CSS coding will still be
typed/copied/pasted, but the majority of my coding is simple stuff --
like codes for paragraphs and breaks and bold, underline, etc.
Incorporating simple codes like that into Dragon's custom vocabulary
will not be rocket science. Before I do that, I wondered whether
anyone here had already developed a standardized vocabulary with DNS
for dictating simple html codes.
Thanks for any advice.
