More impressions of NaturallySpeaking

More NaturallySpeaking experience. I managed to get the Sound Blaster Live! card installed, and it just might make NaturallySpeaking usable.I gave this combination the same test I ran ViaVoice through, namely, reading a passage from Optimizing Windows. What it heard was pretty darn close to what I said:

I was looking for sites about Windows 98. I got a site about cars. If there was ever any doubt in my mind that there’s a website about everything, this site you raised it. Before I knew it, I was reading about tweaking out Dodge spirits and racing them. One fan of the site Rodin, criticizing some aspects of the spirits design. Another Buffett said that without cutting down the Springs, modifying the gizmo that holds the air filter to get more air flowing into the engine, and other less than trivial modifications, the quote the car was awoke totally inadequate quote for staff and go city driving.

The original:

I was looking for sites about Windows 98. I got a site about cars. If there was ever any doubt in my mind that there’s a website about everything, this site erased it. Before I knew it, I was reading about tweaking out Dodge Spirits and racing them. One fan of the site wrote in, criticizing some aspects of the Spirit’s design. Another buff said that without cutting down the springs, modifying the gizmo that holds the air filter to get more air flowing into the engine, and other less-than-trivial modifications, the the car was “totally inadequate” for stop-and-go-city driving.

These are out-of-the-box results. I imagine once I feed NaturallySpeaking a few hundred thousand words I’ve written for analysis, it should get used to me, and work pretty well. The question becomes, can I adjust?
