I subscribed 6 months ago hoping to learn something about the
"state-of-the-art" in voice recognition from the user's perspective. A
friend was seriously interested in using SR for writing, and where
better to learn about people's *actual* experiences than a Usenet
group entitled "comp.speech.USERS"? Now it seems that just about
anywhere else (except SR sales websites) would've been more
All I've managed to learn is that most users are apparently being
ripped off by over-charging slimy weaseloid microphone hawkers.
["Fly-by-night" deserves to be stuck in there as well, but it's a bit
too hyperbolic for my taste.] If I (Patty forbid!) ever wanted to buy
a microphone or a speech recognition package, I now know better than
to visit a "speech recognition store". (I knew that before I started
reading here, but it's just been strongly reinforced.)
Martin Markoe and Mr. "speaktoyourpc.com", I beg you to consider the
number of potential customers you're pissing off before you further
demonstrate your witlessness by posting again. Your childish
King-of-the-Group games should've stopped a loooong time ago.
One other thing. I live in California. No UCE/spam/unsolicited
subscriptions to email lists. I seriously have nothing better to do
with my life than to sue spammers.
I tried sending you a private post but it bounced. Please contact me with a
good E-mail address and the original message will be forwarded.
