on Fiction University:
Why are you resistant to voice recognition?
I dismissed voice recognition the few times writers suggested it to me, because:
1. It’s awkward to speak a book
2. The work wouldn’t be as good or creative
3. Speaking interrupts the flow of ideas
4. I’d have to remember to speak punctuation commands
5. It will slow me down
What I discovered about voice recognition is that I got over the awkwardness, the work is just as good, the words still flow, speaking punctuation is as natural as typing it, and, as I already mentioned, it’s faster.
