Talk to the wall, cos the computer ain't listening,
This review is from: IBM ViaVoice 10.0 Pro USB Edition with Headset (2002) (CD-ROM)I am computer literate, with a 6-month old PC, running a clean and well maintained system including weekly downloads of virus software, automatic updates from good old Bill Gates, teach basic computer literacy and I have never had the difficulty with any programme that I had with ViaVoice.
I loaded the software, spent several sessions training it to recognise my voice and (at best) it was 50/50. It is very memory intensive (95 MB) and after a couple of days it locked out completely so I removed the whole programme, reloaded it and spent a couple more sessions retraining it. It lasted two more days, was still little beter than 50/50, locked out again and I gave up, unloaded it and sent it back.
The theory is brilliant and (when they get it working) it will save a lot of time, but its not there yet.
Give this one a miss for now.
