    I Also Recommend:

    prior reviews aren't fair...the book is as good as the program and for "hunt & peck" typers like me THAT'S a Godsend !!!

    DEFINITELY informative...lot's of shortcuts and tips to get the MOST out of your investment in voice recognition software. Well-written and concise "how-to" on the complexity of voice recognition technology, revealing the subtle changes you can make in your diction and how they affect the software.

    Previous review

    The program can't be that good if the last review was made by using the program, or the spell check on the persons computer wasn't working. I have never seen that spelling (youse) for the word "use" before.
