    is pretty nifty, but I can't seem to make it work for what I want it to: grading papers.

    however, it will type quite accurately for you and there are add ons that will read it back to you, or maybe not even add ons.

    i feel confident you will be able to come here with the right software.

    i am so sorry and can only imagine how scary this is.

    you can write.  of that i am sure.

    maybe your extended family can afford a larger roof when all this washes out.  

    i have read you a lot activist guy.  you are one of the good ones.  

    for now, stay safe and try to see the possibility of things opening up for you.

      Especially for those things we don't do all the time.

      You'll also want to train two profiles - one when you're healthy, and one when you have a cold. It bases its guesses on the "phonemes" it hears. Many of those sound distinctly different when your nose is clogged.

      The tech is very cool. Before Dragon bought them out, I did some consulting for the company that created the early phoneme-based training capacity.
