    Voice Recognition Software


    Is the technology yet at a point where we can use voice recognition
    software (something like Dragon Naturally Speaking) to transcribe
    recorded interviews?

    No. Programs like naturally speaking require "training" to recognize
    your voice and speech patterns. It could not even begin to cope with a
    tape recorded discussion. What might work is for you to listen to the
    tape with headphones then do a simultaneous oral reading of what you
    hear into Naturally Speaking. I have not tried this but intend to do so
    at my next opportunity.

    There are digital tape recorders which Dragon Naturally Speaking can
    transcribe from. But, unless there have been considerable improvements
    since I last looked into it, they aren't useful for interviewing because
    they have very short recording times. They're also rather expensive.

    I tried this "re-dictation" method with IBM ViaVoice and TV discussions and
    talkshows. It worked rather well with political discussions with a rather
    formal use of language. It was nearly useless with talkshows with much slang
    and idiomatic use of language. In the case of a political discussion I
    needed about 8 to 10 hours to transcribe 1 hour of the television program. I
    recorded the program on a standard tape recorder (via line-in, not with the
    microphone). I played this tape then in a dictaphone. I had to buy a better
    headset than the one provided with ViaVoice.
