A new thread in which we only used the dictate Road on our phones or other devices to send posts

Hello all. I have started using the dictate mode regularly as part of my work. After a while, my wrists get rather tired yes I know save it for Thursday, and I end up just talking into my laptop. As it turns out, I think Google is better at this then Microsoft is is, save for a few you interesting mistakes.

I have even worked out how to use punctuation and create new lines! Gomi.

I just say full stop quickly and aggressively and google knows what’s up and punctuates, which I like

Hello I don’t know what to type and by typing same hour is working and see how it’s gone. Line didn’t go so well

And this is why I still have a job, because even one person talking in a room to a device that could listen to them every day can’t dictate properly

That sounds really smug, I’m obviously fucking terrified of automation, please don’t take my job robots

Hello how does this thing work how do you actually get it to post

Maybe you could build the robots to take your job and then they’d still pay you because you’d have the dictation robot patents.

Ok I think I’ve got the hang of it I’m just going to talk really quickly to try and trick Google and did not understand what I’m saying that I think it works alright

Sadly one of my clients has already built a dictation robot, and therefore every job I do for them helps to train that robot. Happily, the robot is still shit (I know this because part of the machine learning is releasing transcripts that the robot has done and having typists correct them, and oh boy it is shit, shit, shit for now).
