    Hey every one,

    I don't have windows vista, but I plan on getting it some time this year. (hopefully) I know that Windows: vista has voice recognition built right in. I'm curious how is it? What can you do with it?

    I'm very interested in hearing your guys/gals experiences.

    Bigk :)

    I used it during the beta testing. It took a while to train it and learn the commands but it was very clear and accurate for the most part. I enjoyed using it.

    The voice activated Windows commands work great! I probably need to give it more time, but the voice dictation is lacking and kinda frustrating. I'll stick to my keyboard when it comes to typing.

    Hi there -

    Have you seen Microsoft's Accessibility Tutorial on the Speech Recognition feature in Vista?

    Here is MS Technet's step-by-step guide.

    These links give readers a nice overview of the features.

    Yankee Rose,

    Thank you for the link. I was watching the demo and found it very interesting. It makes me want to get vista right now. *sigh*....

    But I plan to wait a couple of months before I get a copy.

    Bigk :)
