Can you hear me now?

Yesterday I discovered a new and much better dictation function on my MacBook Air. This is so much easier than trying to type left-handed and then going back and correcting all the mistakes I made.

Now I can dictate content on my laptop just like I dictate texts on my phone.

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their laptops.

Pirate and I both verbally do all our texting and emails. It is so much easier than typing, and typing, and typing, etc.

That's sure what you need at a time like this Andy!


I mentioned this method to SC as he's not a touch typist so he needs to always proof read after the fact. Then I realized I'd have to listen to every word he ever wrote. I quickly nixed the idea.
