    Boy, there’s some intense glamour there. I wonder how she can stand it.

    From the look on her face its either Thorazine or a full frontal lobotomy.

    I will warn you now, you will be hearing from a lot of working stenographers, who are totally computerized now (still with the little steno machine) and do all of your closed captioning and lots of interesting trials every day. Speech recognition for use in a courtroon setting is at least 20 years away. Just consider how long it takes one person to get their Dragon system to understand them. I look forward to checking this site Monday for the massive reaction you will experience.

    I spent the better part of a year trying to help a lawyer use the Dragon system. At that time it was completely helpless with respect to a standard Canadian accent, let alone a New Brunswick accent.

    Never complained because he was the nicest, most modest guy I’ve ever known (and brilliant on top of it – he’s a judge now and the country is better for it) and because I got paid anyway.

    Miramichi speech recognition boggles the mind. Toss in some standard local franglais and I can’t see HOW it would work.
