Santa brought me a voice recognition software package
so I can dictate patient reports more effeciently.

Weeelllll,as the Great Gildersleeve would say, (what, you
didn't listen to radio in the days before TV?) who has a
software package so I can dictate the words and the
computer will output CW to a keyer for thetransmitter.
Boy will I show up N4BP and the other high speed guys.
 
Really, they have done very well to learn the code at high
speeds. I really give them credit for doing it. If you want to
really be a good operator, listen to them sometimes and
you will see how it is done and done well. I do sneak in
to listen and hope to some day be able to be that proficient.

It is helping me to get my code speed up above 25 WPM
also. It is hard for me to still believe that at the age of 18
I could copy 40 WPM. Then college,family,making a living,
all got in the way and I got away from cw and in the last two
years I have gone from about 10 to 25 wpm. Thanks W1AW.

As for me I really would like to have a soft ware package
that would convert spoken words to CW. And vice versa.
The technology can't be far away, of course I could use
the cell phone and forget about it. These 60 year old ears
aren't as good as they used to be.
