Speech recognition software is no longer just science fiction. The future is here and we now have voice recognition on our computers. Instead of using a keyboard to type, we can simply talk and voice commands will accurately translate our dictation into written text.

Sandwich Computer User Group club members have been curious about this “futuristic” software, so club president Jerry Kell will give a brief demonstration on DragonNaturallySpeaking, a speech recognition software package, at the next meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Federated Church in Sandwich, 403 N. Main St. In addition to the program, at each meeting there is a question-and-answer session.

Club members enjoy fellowship as they share ideas and offer solutions to common computer problems. SCUG invites computer users, from novice to more experienced, to join. For more informationn visit www.SCUG.org or contact any club member.
