I can hear the questions now - why in the world am I attempting to use this stuff? Because friends recommended it. I occasionally have problems with my hands and arms so writing and typing can be painful, especially after a while. I was told VRS would solve those problems. Maybe, but it created a whole lot more.
I read through several of the training readings. I read through the manual. I had the "cheat sheet" next to me so I could correct problems as they arose. What I didn't expect was a problem with almost every word! Okay, I can understand a computer not knowing whether to select "their, there, or they're", and to put Jacques or Jackson in for Jess? Possibly. Although it got "Aiden" completely correct. But what about "he said" coming out as "heal lead"? And yes, I was speaking very carefully and clearly.
My friends say it will get better with time. I'm not sure there's enough time in the world for me to get this stuff to work. Or enough time for me to waste on this. Maybe if I had hours to work on it, the software would work. But for now, I'm not impressed.
