Really useless for lectures and interview dictation
I don't know if you found a good dication software for lectures but having been on the 'help chat' at Dragon/Nuance, it's clear that it's not going to help you...or I.
The product is licensed for one voice only and apparently, if you want to have a lecture dictated, you'd have to speak the same words as the lecturer echoing them for the software to do it's job. Completely impossible!
I wanted to do one-to-one interviews for my research and save myself the bother of typing up the responses or paying someone else to do it from an audio file (being about £50 for 30 mins). However, once again, I'd have to echo the person being interviewed for the software to do the job. "Would that be okay for you?" asked the chat woman. "Of course it wouldn't!" I replied. "Just think how stupid this conversation would have been if I'd typed everything back to you that you'd typed to me - a waste of your time and mine!"
She had nothing much to say to that so I politely ended the conversation.
Such a shame. It's gonna cost me so much time transcribing all that data
If anyone knows of anything that will do the job I describe, I would be very happy to hear from you!
Good luck with your course.
