It’s a little scary when you come across speech recognition software that has the contextual nous to differentiate between Foxx and fox, but that’s what Dragon NaturallySpeaking 9 can do.Say, “Jamie Foxx the actor” and you’ll get the double-X version, mention, “furry fox” and you’ll get the single X. Doubtless this sort of acumen can be explained in terms of word nets, relevant vocabulary and databases but it’s still very impressive. Good Dragon.
