I’ve been away caregiving and such again. So I have not been able to get on the computer to do anything for a really long time. There is always something...Grandson is home from school today sick.
I got a text from his mommy at 2:00 am this morning saying he had a fever of 103 degrees along with the shivers. And, he would not be going to school come morning. They got here about 7:15 am. It is almost 4:00 pm now. He’s eating again, so I’m stealing time to post a quick note to you.
While I was away I spent a lot of time wondering how in the world I could Blog more often. Ideas are constantly running through my head as I work. But, I never seem to have the time to put my thoughts into writing. That started me thinking about how I could remedy the situation. I need a way to make blogging easier.
I thought about my “Dragon”.
Remember? I bought the Dragon Naturally Speaking Voice Recognition System a few years ago. I did not use it often though. When I did use it, I found it relatively easy to use. It was a lot of fun watching my spoken words pop onto the page like popcorn popping in a microwave oven.
Then, I got busy with life. I put my Dragon aside while I maneuvered through the potholes and obstacles of daily life. In the process, I did not use the Dragon to my advantage.
Now I find myself STILL overwhelmed with a multitude of everyday routines and other caregiving things to do. So I started searching for voice recognition systems in order to make my life a little easier. Blogging was at the top of my list of reasons for wanting a voice to text system.
As soon as I started my search, I realized I already had a system so I clicked on my Dragon icon on my laptop. It didn't work. I kept getting error messages. I tried everything my "non- tekky” self could think of, but nothing worked.
My Dragon was dead!
Oh well, what else is new? That’s the way it goes around here. I just wanted to say hi to you and to let you know what’s happening with me. I hope you are having a nice week so far.
