There are stories about knights slaying fire breathing dragons. They usually also involve a castle, a princess and a villain.
In my story there’s a villain called MS and a knight called Mr. Legs (my husband) who solicits a friendly dragon to fire up my typing ability. I’m no princess, but I used to type over 100 words per minute. Seriously, I was fast. My fingers flew across the keyboard and I enjoyed being good at it. After the villain attacked my hands some, I was typing slower. Then slower….and even slower. Over time, I went from using ten fingers to using only two fingers….and then that was reduced to one. It’s difficult to put thoughts onto a page before they evaporate when tapping on the keyboard is so greatly slowed.
Frustrated, I thought there must be a way to overcome this. It finally occurred to me that voice recognition software was an answer to the problem! I should have thought about it much earlier but I’m used to adjusting to new limitations so I often make-do with situations I’m in. Christmas wasn’t too far away and I didn’t have anything on my list of things to ask for. This was definitely something I could use. I asked for it and on Christmas morning it was unwrapped. My personal computer guru, Mr. Legs, installed it and helped me start on the road to speaking my words onto the screen.
What a relief! Wonderful technology and some inventive minds created this helpful tool for me to express myself. I can now continue writing and sharing my life with whomever has the time and desire to read it. I am so grateful that almost everything on the computer is easier now. I love seeing the Dragon’s blue flame on the screen showing it’s ready to help me.
I wish I had done this much earlier. I’m glad to have been set on fire. It is a valuable timesaver. Instead of being rescued from the dragon, I was rescued by the Dragon. It’s great to see the words appear on the screen almost as fast as they used to.
