Windows Speech Recognition Sucks

After reading Jeremy Shoemaker's latest newsletter I was pretty psyched about getting some speech recognition software to increase my blogging production by like 1000%. After a bit of Googling I found I've had this power in the palm of my hands ever since I installed MS Office. I just had to install speech recognition and wait for my muse.

Here is an especially enlightening passage:

and the went and the thirteenth when pitcher up into Europe and the doctor is like only Alice is really out I can feel your desk for so you can't get back in their idea of an issue can stand up straight after that and I am came home and I think it's right, I will bet against is For the year at the court the weaker of the Gann inside to the levee upstairs and then them and landing on the bathroom and so she went in there and all senator Donald Becker date in its early entree into the night of the foods of the night and I mean that's a report in much of the things that she and antisense high school the shipping are back, like this since high school and in mind when mind goes out and as you know the desyeah right now with I know I mean it does it's that it's that things have been if if if if it hadn't happened and it wouldn't understand what kind of pain and as the that's not good fellow city has some random attack yesterday off even though I only had half a second amateur what did the account three decades into its own abilities swap on the home ride on the act and sprinkle of the F.

Note that this was after successfully completing 3 training sessions, so I might be able to tune it a bit more.

Now that solid speech recognition technology is available in Windows XP, I predict that we'll see more third-party programs take advantage of the hooks that Windows XP provides. --Jeremy Moskowitz

I wonder why more programs haven't picked up on this awesome technology? Well, its obvious that spammers have used it for some time.
