This is Amazing

Overall my experience is great

Overall my experience is great

Pros

I was in the middle of writing something and getting tired of typing so I just Googled something and boom found this utility. I cannot believe how easy and convenient it is and how much Easier it makes my life. In fact I'm typing this review after having Installed this about 3 minutes ago. It's great!In fact it's so intuitive I simply hit tab and it went to the next block with no effort. I am really amazed at how great this is.

Cons

I can't find any cons but since it wants me to type more than 40 characters I'm adding this

There were a few glitches over the years but in the long run LilySpeech worked smoothly and efficiently - and still does. I am very pleased with this item.

Pros

Easy to install, user friendly, accurate and fairly quick to translate the speech to the dialog box. It has a preview feature and several options for more complex transcription assignments. And both times I trached out for tech support, their reps were patient, professional but friendly at the same time. 4 ****s.

Cons

It is a little slow to load and I had some trouble finding the LilySpeech icon one it opened. Once the LilySpeech download window not only never downloaded but never vacated my screen no matter what I did, until I finally uninstalled it. But that was a singular event and never came close to recurring.

Alternatives Considered

SpeechTexter and Otter

Reasons for Switching to LilySpeech

It was the only Speech to Text utility that placed the text in the place you wanted it; all the others were Speak - Copy from text pane -Paste into destination.

Initially, I was able to dictate with some easy even though there were many errors. This was because Nuance Dragon NaturallySpeaking had stopped working after my computer was upgraded to 8.1. But obviously it's a disaster for them to all of a sudden disappear

Pros

I did like the way in which it was easily setup, even though they're was not as much of a facility for correction

I'm a long-time speech recognition user. Nothing's perfect, but this works as well or better than anything on the market. It's extremely lightweight on your computer and it's extremely affordable. Obvious choice in my opinion.

Pros

I just really like the time savings. I'm a terrible typer and not a great speller so this is a lifesaver.

Cons

Nothing really. Speech recognition is never perfect... I've used others, so I guess there's that, but that's asking too much.

Has been saving me lots of time on my emailing. I like the canned answer feature too. I've use Dragon Naturally Speaking, but it does not work well with my laptop microphone. This seems to work very well.

Pros

Very good accuracy. Huge time Savings. Very customizable.

Cons

I wish there was a way to dictate directly into applications.
