Tech Tip Tuesday : Dragon Dictation

Tweet One of my favorite (and free) tools is Dragon Dictation. It does bring back memories of the days of yore,when people used to dictate correspondence for their secretarial staff to transcribe.

Why I Write – Warburg CEO Fred Peters -explains his why in his latest blog post !
