work that we are doing on this site is for profit.
Our income will be derived from recommending carefully selected resources
to help you learn and become a better entrepreneur.
If this site makes a recommendation for you to buy a product, it will be
carefully researched and will not be "fluff" just to take your money.
Our income will be from fees and commissions paid to us as an
affiliate of the product that we are recommending (you can learn about
affiliates in a section of Boomer-Entrepreneur.com).
Our fee is included in the price that you pay for the product and does
not add to your cost. We will give you a link to purchase the product that

product so we can be fairly compensated. You

from pounding the keyboard to speaking to the computer.
When you develop a
website you must transfer a considerable amount of information from the mental
form to the written form. I have
decided to make the switch from pounding the keys to voice recognition (VR)
software. If you are running Windows
XP, VR is built in to it. If not,
there are several packages out there that will do the job.
From the reviews, it appears that Dragon Naturally Speaking 8 is a front
runner. I must declare a potential
conflict of interest here since I own stock in the company that produces and
sells the software. That is almost a
joke since I own so little stock.
I am using the Windows XP
voice recognition feature to see if it will be accurate enough.
If not, I will breakdown and buy the Dragon Speaking software.
One thing that you need to know about Linda and me is that we are both of
Scots ancestry. Scots have a
reputation of not spending money unless it is absolutely necessary, and then
looking for the very best deal. We
fit that mold.
The accuracy of the voice
recognition software is very dependent on the microphone and the sound card so I
spent part of the afternoon evaluating the various microphones for the VR
application. I found a wide range of
prices and quality. The prices range
from below $10 to above $200. The
$200 mic is what a rock star might use so I do not need that.
I finally settled on an earphone/boom microphone combo for approximately
$59 plus shipping.
I will report to you on the results of this switch from fingers to voice for data enter. Stay tuned.
