Fortunate. Fantastic. Frustrating. Fail. These are words I would use to describe my dictation experience over the last year.
While I work on the typing skillzz, my e-mails, text messages, social media posts, AND this bomb-diggity blog are currently created by dictation, along with speech, and voice over. It’s a process.
I am FORTUNATE to have dictation as a part of my assistive technology tools. Dictation is FANTASTIC because it allows me to stay connected on all my devices via voice… and you knoooow how I love to talk! Blah, blah, blah…all day, all day!
Using dictation can be a little FRUSTRATING at times. Well, maaaybe even ugly. yeah… blind girl tizzys and technology timeouts be happenin’ over here! It drives me crazy when I have to repeat a word over and over until it types out the the actual word I’m pronouncing! It can be downright weak dick kill us!!
That brains me to the surprising fart of dictation. The crazy word or words that dick station thinks I’m saying… which I’m not!… I call a dictation FAIL! Stop! Just for the record, I’m not drunk dictating. Friends don’t let blind friends drink and dictate, Right?!? ha ha! Okay, okay… can you see or hear how my innocent words turned into FAIL? OH that silly dictation!!!
Let me throw out some of the more precious examples for y’all! If you dictate anything, you will relate! Note: I’m not holding back on the profanity here. Dictation has a potty mouth!
French horn = French porn
It’s = tits
Tizzy fit = dizzy tit
So excited = so X-rated
Bitchy blind girl = witchy blonde girl
Focus = so kiss, but this,
butt guess, phone sex, fuck yes
Focus Friday = fuck it’s Friday
Blind happiness = find hat penis
SAY WHAT?? Yup! I swear! These little gems have popped up in my dictations. Some of them sound like the drinks your friends bought you on your 21st birthday! yikes! Hopefully you will never see any of the dirty faux pas, because I’m a recovering perfectionist and a quick bitch on those edit, change it and delete commands! C’mon… I keep the blog shit classy here at Girl Gone Blind!
