Turn your Mobile Phone into a Microphone Using Dragon 12

Nuance’s latest speech recognition software, Dragon 12 aims to change how you work, communicate, and create content. This latest iteration, Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 has been designed to turn talk into text faster and more accurately than its previous versions. Users only need to speak to capture ideas, create content, browse email, search the Web, or control their PCs.

Dragon 12 also lets users convert their iOS or Android device into a wireless microphone, using the free Dragon Remote Microphone App. It turns the compatible iPhone, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad or Android device into a wireless microphone for use with Dragon over a Wi-Fi network. To start the app, users can use the camera on their device to scan the barcode that Dragon 12 provides on-screen (Available in Dragon Home Edition and above).

Dragon 12 promises up to 20 percent improvement, and out of the box accuracy compared with its earlier version, Dragon 11. It also learns word correction; so if you do make a correction to the converted text, Dragon learns from it. Formatting issues are taken care of as well. The first time you choose your preferences, Dragon 12 will learn them and observe when you make a change to the formatting. The next time text is dictated, it is formatted the way you first chose it.

No new Mobile Towers within 1 km Radius of Existing ones: MoEF

Pitching in on the current debate on the possible danger of cellphone radiation, the Environment Ministry says a review of available scientific information by its panel of experts shows that “electromagnetic radiations interfere with the biological systems.” Accordingly, it asked the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) not to allow new mobile towers to be constructed within one kilometre radius of existing towers.

The advisory was issued by the Ministry after it received the report of an expert committee set up two years ago to study the possible impacts of the half a million strong network of communication towers on wildlife, including birds and bees. There has been widespread concern that radiation from such towers is responsible for the declining population of birds such as sparrows, and bees which are vital to the pollination of many plant species and hence a key part of both the agricultural economy and natural ecosystems.
