Since I broke my right wrist, I haven’t been able to type. Thank goodness for voice recognition software, that speedily and effortlessly translates my spoken words to print. Okay, we may have to take out the “effortlessly” because there is a lot of editing involved, to spare the children!
Voice recognition isn’t state-of-the-art yet, at least not on my Mac. It often transcribes the full word “exclamation”, for example, when I just wanted to type a damn exclamation point! It jumbles words together, capitalizes any old noun it desires, and really is only a little bit better than typing with a pencil in my teeth.
I thought you might enjoy a few of the more colorful missed transcriptions that almost snuck past me in the last three weeks. The most common error was “Expo” for my usual sign-off “xo”. We also had:
boho = blowhole
linking = licking (ugh, imagine thanking a refined fellow blogger for “licking” up to my post.)
orchestra = orca
wrap = rat (I told Pao I admired her “rat shirt”.)
thanks = angst
And my personal favorite, when I was writing about the “pins” sticking out of my broken arm, the words were typed as “penis sticking out of my arm”. That would’ve made for a truly memorable Visible Monday.
Stay fabulous, and see you at the new “Easy does it” Visible Monday,
Reminder: Visible Monday starts Sunday around 5PM. You are invited to share your favorite outfit, accessory, hairstyle or lipstick of the week – anything that made you feel Visible. Be there for the best blogger party and the finest style on the webz!
