Software that converts the spoken word to text has steadily improved over the years, with Nuance’s Dragon NaturallySpeaking 9 now offering conversion of 160 words per minute with 99 per cent accuracy. And it is now available wireless.
The software ideal of you want to transfer that stream of consciousness into words, but don’t fancy tapping away at a PC all afternoon. In fact, the new version doesn’t even require you to sit near a PC. It uses the latest Plantronics CS60 wireless headset, which has a range of 100 metres, so you can kick back in an easy chair rather than that stiff old office seat.
Available now, expect to pay around £199.99.
