Up and Running

The new computer is together and working. I put the new parts into a case that I had available. Everything went smooth.

One of the reasons for building the new computer was to make use of its capabilities with the software Dragon NaturallySpeaking. This post is being typed by the software. I am still learning to use the software but it seems to be working quite well.

The computer works quite well, as well. I used the Core i3 Haswell processor clocked at 3.7 GHz on a Gigabyte motherboard. I use 8 GB of GSkill memory and a Crucial SSD. I used Windows 7 for the operating system. The computer powered up and loaded the OS on first attempt without problems. At the present time I amĀ  getting the computer set up with my programs and applications.

Using the software to type is an interesting experience. Dragon NaturallySpeaking is a pretty smart software. There is a little set up. One reads a couple of passages. The first one is for a microphone level check and the second is to learn how you speak. The set up procedure takes only a few minutes and then you are ready to go. There is a little editing that’s necessary at this time but Dragon is supposed to learn how you speak and do better as time goes on.

That’s all for now but you will be hearing (seeing) more from me in the near future.
