Technical Junkie

I have always hatred recognition systems for things like typing. Speech recognition, at least, isn't all that slow, but handwriting recognition is pretty doable, but so SLOW compared to just typing. But I've noticed that when I get the Dragon Naturally Speaking fired up and running, I actually speak quite differently than I type. My language is different. It's why, when I write sermon parts, I have to read them aloud before they're finalized to make sure that they actually fit spoken language rather than written.

Sometimes it just cleans up the language, really.
