    I think the closest you get is Code-a-text, it has a build-in
    transcription facilitator.

    Dawn,

    Check out NaturallySpeaking. This voice recognition software is probably
    the best available. You can use it to talk directly into your word
    processor or into the NautrallySpeaking text editor and then paste the
    resulting text to your clipboard.

    The professional version, which I use, is expensive (around $600), but a
    scaled-down version is also available. WordPerfect bundled NS in its
    suite a few months ago and perhaps still does.

    The Web address is www.dragonsys.com.

    I am a new Atlast.ti user, so I have yet to use NaturallySpeaking with it,
    but I plan to, and expect that it will save me considerable time.

    Hi Jeff,
    I would like to make it process my speech as I 'speak' the quotations of
    others. Someone suggested "Code-a-Text" which has a transcription
    facilitator. I am beginning at square one, looking for this particular
    feature. Any recommendations? Websites I might search?

    Thanks so much for the reply.
    Dawn

    I would thing that you could get voice recognition to work with most qda
    programs. do you want to control the operations or to make it type? the
    latter requires the better quality programs. My thought is that they can
    be used with most applications.

    I'd recommend that you look into the better recognitions systems that are
    available commercially by dragon dictate and IBM. I think that they will
    "write" into any text area.

    Dear Ray,
    Many thanks for the reply concerning NaturallySpeaking. I have had, now,
    several recommendations and have looked into DragonSys's website. Your "tips"
    helped me think again about my decision regarding the NS versions: standard,
    preferred, professional.

    A great help. Thank you.
    Regards,
    Dawn

    Dawn and Paul,

    Dragon Naturally Speaking is the way to go. If you want to go a cheaper
    route than professional, look into the "preferred" version. On their web,
    Dragon has downloads for use of Dragon within Word and WordPerfect.

    When you get Dragon here are some tips to enhance performance:

    - A lot of ram helps...at least 64 regardless of what they tell you
    - Try to reduce background noise when you use Dragon (background music is
    not a great idea)
    - Do the sample texts and try to be comfortable reading them in a normal
    voice rather than a slow reading voice
    - Take the time to correct errors as they happen
    - It helps to read a quick sample text before each time you use Dragon
    (there are some 90 second samples)
    - Voice recognition works on cadence...not the tone of your voice...
    - My business partner John and I have very different voices but can both use
    Dragon without needing to train as separate people...We speak at a very
    similar pace and with a similar intonation.
    - With this in mind, keep as your goal getting Dragon to recognize your
    NORMAL speech pattern. I've found preferred pretty good with this when you
    have enough RAM

    Good Luck!
