Guest #32748436 Even now, with the program well established it still has an Achilles heel, which is:
the DNS profile is corrupted every time my Windows (I have Windows 7 Pro). The 'Restore' action is implemented. If you copy a backup copy, then the program halts at Startup so you can select which of your backups you want to run.

David Jones Automatic voice recognition software normally reduces the manual transcription needs. But Automatic voice recognition technology is not still matured to produce accurate transcription for non-American accents, or with people speaking quickly or multiple speakers audio files. If you have more than one voice it is almost impossible to get a good transcript. Add to that any background noise or a weak recording and you can pretty much forget it.

So, after automatic transcription, you have to massage this transcription into the final form. Some of the massages are

Correct incorrectly transcribed words/phrases.
Correct punctuation/sentence breaks.
Define paragraph breaks.
