Dragon Naturally Speaking: Interim report #2:

Do I trust 'Dragon Naturally Speaking' to understand strange word orders or unusual grammar, then will I be disappointed. It turns out that DNL does an immense amount of semantic analysis to understand my dictation. I know this because it translates normal straightforward English very well. But when I want my fictional writing to use stilted English or unusual word order (e.g., see that frst sentence, just above), why then DNL mistranslates fistfuls of words. It's fun to use though, I'm enjoying it.
