Yet another trip to The Cricketers for lunch, this time with Douglas Gordon, who has recently returned from a visit to Canada. Despite the threat of rain we steadfastly sat outside at my normal table so that that I could, selfishly smoke, without a great deal of consideration for my guess.. The people inside must have thought we were stark raving mad particularly when it started to rain and we did not move. However, the rain was short lived and the sun came out, so we were vindicated.
It was great to hear from Douglas about his recent Canadian trip but I found myself a little embarrassed as he had been reading, on my blog, about the problems I’m having with Dragon. I have been such an advocate for this particular voice activation software, over the years, but now I am confessing publicly to its failure I feel some responsibility towards all those good friends of mine to whom I have recommended it. I have another ‘voice assist’ session with Ruben of Nuance scheduled for tomorrow morning, so pray he can crack the problem for me at last. I must say this about the Nuance technicians, in particular, Ruben, they are the most polite, courteous and patient people I could possibly hope to deal with, the only snag being that they have not yet been able to resolve my problem.
I pray Ruben manages it tomorrow. As much as anything the problem is that my arms are getting so weak that I’m very close to the point where I will be 100% reliant on voice activation so it is imperative I get to that stage before losing the last bit of control I have with the one splintered finger.
