“The greatest ignorance is to reject something you know nothing about”

I have an asus tablet has an app that it dictates me on what I say. My bloody problem is that it can't understand my accent or it would use background noises as words, so in the end it ends up saying complete gibberish.
I said "Note to self, talk to fred and remind him to order more iPods"
What it wrote "not to silk, fork two Fred and rewind him to order morph iPods"
So my prediction is some one going to post here and tell a story where he/she used the dictation app and the app was talking back and giving answers and say it was a they/demon.
Warning: I am a skeptic,
Please do not ask me about Oujia Boards, Mrs Cake, Orb photos, Pictures of a ghost which your friend took with his cell, Ghost Radars, Mrs Cake and Franks box/Spirit Box.
Yeah, I can totally see this happening. We got a tablet in the house recently, and I've used it for taking notes for gardening. I quit using it because it screwed words too much. I realize it has an adaptive learning system, but it was just quicker to type the notes down. Now that time really isn't of the essence, maybe I will sit down with the thing and train it properly.
"Pepper six of eight" would become "paper sick of hate"
"Marigold is null" would become "Marry gold in skull"
And it really had some not right results for specific plant names.
I wonder what kind of odd stuff would pop up if you just left a tablet on transcribe mode all night? Yeah, I can totally see people telling stories about their ipod/tablet said whatever, or ghost hunters starting to use them.
Yes, I am a cynical and jaded jacknape. I try to see all three sides of the coin- do you?
Brian...have you tried Dragon yet? Seems a bit smarter in the way they use their voice recognition. I agree....someone will come up with that....someone told me about this gibberish the other day...ever hear of this guy and his reverse recordings? I've listened to a couple and some sure are a stretch. LOL Your post reminded me of this and how everyone's looking for the next thing in recording.
Here is an observation I've made here in the U.S. People from the south say we in the north have an accent. We of course in the north, say those in the south have the accent. Which obviously is true from both sides. HOWEVER, whenever you visit the south "yall", and you catch the local news station, the anchors on the TV speak like we do in the north when it comes to just being a reporter and not a character actor or playing the part of a southerner...which I would just say is regular ol english - American english that is So, who exactly has the accent and who has the native speak, since even the people from that local area have trained their voices to sound just like everyone else in the north? I have yet to hear a news anchor with a thick southern twang reporting the news like the locals in that same community have. Weird right?!? LOL I gotta get out more......carry on!
