Our company was in the first class certified by IBM as Speech Recognition Specialists in 1993. With all our experience, we have gleaned many useful ideas from Susan. Tips on how to dictate and use macros have been especially useful to us and our clients. Susan's web site, ComputingOut Loud, is also a great reference tool. -- (Martin Markoe, President, Speech Controlled Computer Systems, Inc.) —Martin Markoe

 Susan Fulton is very knowledgeable in speech recognition programs, including IBM's. At the Mount Sinai I. J. Selikoff Center for Occupational and Environmental Medicine, she has instructed dozens of people in the applications, benefits and limitations of speech recognition. -- (Jonathan Dropkin, Ergonomist, Mount Sinai Center) —Jonathan Dropkin
 

                      Reviews and Commentary

Speech Recognition is a dazzling technology making huge leaps forward in making computers more useful. It sounds great, to have your computer "take a memo" and obey your command. But is this really possible? Susan Fulton answers that question with a resounding "Yes! If you have the right guidance."

This is what she provides in Begin Dictation. Why let yourself in for frustration, wasted time and wasted money when practical how-to's are so readily at hand? Based on years of experience using speech recognition to accomplish real activities, Begin Dictation is more than a simple user's  manual. With step-by-step illustrated instructions, Susan Fulton shows you how to make your speech program work for you and, indeed, dazzle you.

The Second Edition is revised and expanded to cover the most recent versions of IBM's popular continuous speech recognition packages for dictation rather than keyboarding.
