Say It Back

July 18th, 2013

Text to speech software is a great tool that serves many unique purposes for computer users today. If you spend a lot of time online doing research and reading information, this software can be a huge blessing! After you install text to speech programming on your computer, it can read any document or web page to you. Using natural voices, the software reads aloud any text that you select. That means you can sit back and relax your eyes while you listen to the text you need as it is read aloud.

The text to speech software is particularly helpful when you are reading an ebook or other long document. By using the software, you can relax and listen to any document or ebook in audio form. There is no need to drop hundreds of dollars on audio books! Just download the regular ebook format and let this software immediately work as an audio reader.

I was only 24 years old when I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. It started when I began developing horrible pain in my hands that would keep me awake at night. I’m a freelance writer and spend around eight hours a day writing articles for my clients so at first, I figured that I had started developing carpal tunnel syndrome. I tried using wrist splints and using the ergonomic keyboards, but nothing seemed to help. Soon I visited the doctor only to learn that I had rheumatoid arthritis.

It really could not have happened at a worse time in my life. I had just started working for a new client that specialized in electronic cigarette reviews and I had weeks of work piled up and waiting for me to return to the keyboard. I tried a series of medications, but each one had side effects that left me feeling horrible and it really impacted my ability to do good work as a writer. It wasn’t long before I knew that I would have to take a different approach to treating my pain if I was going to salvage my career.

The first thing I did was radically changing my work habits. I started using text to speech software that eliminated the need for me to spend eight hours a day typing and abusing my hands. The new software allowed me to speak into a microphone and have my words automatically transcribed onto the computer screen. Not only was I sparing my hands from hours of torture, but I found that I could churn out electronic cigarette reviews faster than ever before!

Next, I changed my diet and became totally gluten free. I had read a lot about nutrition online and I knew that gluten was a big trigger for inflammation and joint pain in some people. I completely eliminated it from my diet and it definitely made a difference. I also started treating my painful joints with essential oils. I learned a lot about oils during my time writing electronic cigarette reviews. Many of the flavors associated with ecig liquids are reminiscent of the oils that offer big health benefits. Not only do they smell amazing, but they soothe my pain and help me to feel better without living on a steady drip of pain pills and strong drugs.

By changing my lifestyle and using the text to speech software, I was able to adapt my habits and make adjustments for my disease. I still get to write electronic cigarette reviews and work for the clients that I truly love, but I’m not paying for it with failing health anymore. If you have special needs that limit your ability to do your job, get creative and make small changes. It’s amazing how just a few little tweaks can transform your life.

I have personally used text to speech software before and I can tell you what I have learned from it. I do not use mine anymore because it isn’t worth it to me. The text to speech software that I have used is called Dragon Naturally Speaking. It was fun at first but it soon became more of a hassle to me than it was worth.

One of the good things about using text to speech software is that it can keep your fingers from getting so tired if you have a lot to type. I have typed so much before that my fingers started cramping and that is not a good feeling for anyone to have. Because you don’t have to type but rather you speak your words when using text to speech software, your hands can rest and relax.

One of the biggest cons to using text to speech software is that sometimes the software doesn’t understand what you are saying and it will “type” the wrong word. I had to spend more time going back and correcting words than I ever have had to do when I just type them myself. One of the reasons for this misunderstanding headache is that I have a country accent which the dragon software didn’t pick up on. You have to take your time and pronounce each word like you were using the Queen’s English and that for me was a hassle.

I have gotten my software out a few times since I bought it but honestly it was a big waste of money to me. I wouldn’t buy it again, and unless you type extremely slow I wouldn’t suggest purchasing any kind of text to speech software.

I have been involved in the online marketing business for nearly 8 years now. Over that time I have had the opportunity to really learn the business and to learn how to make a living doing the work. This is not an easy business to crack in to. It has taken me many years to build a client base and to be able to make enough money to support my family. However my business was almost taken from me a few years back. I was involved in a horrible car accident that left me paralyzed from the chest down. I had never realized how much I depended on my mobility to support my family. but once the mobility was taken away, I truly understood what I was missing. My business involved using the computer to type large quantities of orders and pages. I was not going to be able to make the business work any longer if I could not type the orders that were being made. What was I going to do?

I ended up ordering a text to speech software program. This is a great tool for people like me that have mobility issues. The program loaded into my computer and over a period of 3 days, it learned how I speak and the inflections of my voice. It allowed me to speak directly to the computer and then the speech would be converted into text on the computer. This was a lifesaver for my family and me. I was afraid that I would lose everything I had worked so hard to build. However thanks to this great software program I was able to keep on working and to actually grow my business.

I am a newbie in the tech world. I have watched my children run circles around me on the computer. And while I am not a techie in the making, I am quickly learning my way around the computer. With that being said I wanted to share a few things that I have learned and a few programs that I am excited about. First of all I am not a gamer. I do not get into video games and the online gamers drive me crazy. So there will be no talk about games in this section. I do however love to take photos. I am an amateur photographer so I like to use the computer to edit my pictures. I am a huge fan of the new lightroom-editing program. This thing is awesome. It allows me to alter the pictures like never before. If you like photo editing then you need to try this software out.

Another great software that I like is called quick books. Quick books are a great way for me to keep my business working. I run a concrete plant and this means that I have tons of orders coming in and I have lots of paperwork that needs to be handled. QuickBooks allows me to keep track of all the accounts that I have. It makes my book keeping much easier plus, I no longer have to pay an accountant to handle the books for my business. You might not be interested in this type of software but you should be. Understanding taxes is the key to becoming successful and this has revolutionized my business and my world.

We thought our nursery customers would love it when we created a four-acre outdoor nursery that they could wander through and choose the seasonal plants they wanted to take home. Not only did we feel that this was an excellent way to provide them with great plants, but that it would also give them some landscaping ideas.

We were right. Our customer did love our outdoor shopping experience. It was one of our best years ever. The only thing we didn’t count on. The amount of damage our customers would do to the ground. We had created walkways out of flat stones, but this didn’t seem to be enough to discourage our customer from trampling our plants. Plus, things got muddy when it rained. If we were going to repeat the same experience another year, we needed a better system.

Our salvation came in the form of this website: http://www.wickcraft.com/Walkways.aspx. Although the walkways are typically used in marinas and as commercial boardwalks, we thought they would be the perfect addition to our nursery. We were right.

It only took a short while for the marine track and lake boat dock to be installed. Once that was complete, we customized it by adding a handrail. When customers wanted to see a plant they could bend kneel to get close to it, but the handrail created a barrier that saved our young plants from getting crushed under careless feet. Some of our customers have liked the look so well, they’re considering getting something similar for their small, at home gardens.

Since the Wickcraft walkways have been designed to be used at marinas, the heavy moisture we expose our to doesn’t seem to be a problem.

We’ve noticed that in addition to not losing as many plants, the indoor section of our nursery has also stayed a great deal cleaner than it did last year. Our customers aren’t tracking in nearly as much mud and debris as they did when we first opened our outdoor garden.

Tending the outdoor garden has also gotten much easier. The new walkway is wide enough that our employees can drive a four wheeler hooked to a utility cart through the outdoor garden and do chores in half the amount of time it took when they were struggling to navigate the paving stones. Not only do we have happier employees, but we didn’t have to hire quite as many as we did the previous year, even though we’ve been busier.

We’re so grateful that we found the Wickcraft walkway. It’s been a wonderful took for our business. It has made it possible for us to keep our outdoor garden. We’re talking about expanding, and if we do, Wickcraft will be part of that expansion.

I am a homeschooling parent. While the majority of people will scoff and laugh at those of us that decided to educate our children on our on, there is a real benefit to tackling this enormous task. One of the great benefits is that a parent can spend more time with their child. After spending more one on one time you will soon learn the weaknesses and the strengths of your child. It became apparent to me that my son was having a difficult time learning to read. While this is not an uncommon problem to see in young kids, the solutions are often hard to find. I decided to try something new. After spending some time researching the benefits and the best software, my wife and I decided to purchase a text to speech software program. This little blessing has changed our life and our schooling time.

Text to speech has helped in a number of ways by allowing my son to not only see a word but to hear the proper pronunciation of the word. In fact, he has begun to read along with the software as it works. Over the past few days he has gained an incredible amount in the area of reading comprehension. If you are looking for a new and exciting way to help your child read, or if you are simply tired of having to read 15 books to your child each night, consider making the purchase of a text to speech software. It could change your life and the way you interact with your children.

If you are like me then you have a close friend or family member that is seeing impaired. It never ceases to amaze me at how many things in life are geared toward the one sense that these people do not have. My close friend lost his sight in an auto accident and has since had to live his life in total darkness. And while there are many ways that the blind suffer in life, one of my friend’s biggest losses was his love for reading. Now before you go talking about audio books, remember that these items can be as much as thirty dollars apiece. My friend loves to read but he doesn’t have the cash to continually purchase these expensive audio books.

However, I discovered a new technology that is making a huge impact on his life. Text to speech is software that has been used for some time but it has recently become more common. I decided to purchase this, as a gift, and it has changed his life. Now he has the option of purchasing an electronic book and then having the software read it to him. Not only does this save him some money but it has brought his love of reading back to life. Every week there is a new book and a new story that he cannot wait to share with me. We even recently joined a book review club. This is a great software and I would encourage you to seriously consider using this technology for those loved ones in your life that are seeing impaired or completely blind.

My children love it when daddy reads them a story before bedtime. In fact, what was once a 10 minute exercise has become a marathon of daddy reading everything on the bookshelf. While I love spending the extra time with my kids, there comes a point in the life of dad that he simply cannot handle another story that deals with make believe characters and issues that could never, ever happen.

This is why I decided to do something a little bit different. A few months ago I was looking for a new computer and I discovered a new technology called text to speech. This is an amazing development for moms and dads that are looking for a break from story time. Let me explain how this works in our house.

My kids love to read but they also enjoy when someone else reads to them. After all, who doesn’t enjoy letting someone else do all the work while you receive the benefit? Anyway, we simply download a new electronic version of the books they like and then we allow the computer to read to them.

This does not replace mom or dad but it does allow for them to be read to when we have other things that we need to do. I would strongly recommend this software for those parents that need a break from the reading times. Not only will this free up some of your time but it will also allow you to cut down on the clutter of a ton of books in the house.

As the majority of people are aware there is a ton of electronic material available. One of the most saturated fields in the World is the technology field. And while there are many different software programs and devices that you will never use or may not have even heard of, there is one technology that you need to be aware of. This technology can change your life by freeing up your time, cleaning up your home, and even restoring peace and sanity to your home.

This magical technology is not a device but rather a piece of software. Speech to text software is a great way to have your computer read to you, read to your children, cut down on the number of physical books in your home, and it can even entertain your family while you all sit around and listen to an amazing story.

So what is the best software out there? This is a good question and unfortunately it does not have a clear-cut answer. The best software for speech to text is going to be based on the use that you envision. Always look for software that is intuitive. A software that can learn or be improved by frequent updates. You may want to shy away from those software programs that have been around for an extended period of time. Typically, the software that is newer will work faster, more efficiently, and they will have the ability to connect to the Internet and download new updates.

Business is a cutthroat world that demands attention to detail, on time presentations, and an ability to work under pressure. And while there are a myriad of ways that a person can help to streamline the business world, there is a new technology that could make this an even easier proposition. Text to speech is the technology that you need. Not only will this technology help you work faster but it will also allow you the ability to interject some much-needed excitement into your next business presentation. Are you tired of the same old power point presentations? Does the mundane presentation put your customers into a coma? If you answered yes to any of those questions then you need this technology.

One of the great benefits of the text to speech software program is that you can choose how fast the text will be read and you can decide how it will be read. You will have the ability to add voice inflection as well as the opportunity to change the dialect or the accent that is used. Are you making a presentation to a group that does not speak your language? Text to speech can translate your presentation in to the language that they best understand. This technology will meet your expectations and it will take you to places that you never new existed. Allow this technology into your boardroom and you will be amazed at the benefits and the excitement that it will produce. What are you waiting for?
