New Dragon speech recognition software $129

Dragon Point & Speak is a new speech recognition program that can be used with virtually any Windows application, says its distributor, Marketing Results.

The aim of Dragon Point & Speak was to "focus on the essentials that consumers wanted and eliminate the complex features found in other business and professional systems" a statement from Marketing Results reads. The $129 RRP program allows the user to point and click their mouse in a text box and start speaking. Text then appears in the application.

According to Marketing Results, the program is compatible with virtually all Windows applications such as Microsoft Word, chat room software and e-mail programs.

Up to 160 words per minute can be dictated using Dragon Point & Speak, which has the same speech recognition engine as its creator's other speech recogntion software, Dragon NaturallySpeaking.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
