On using a digital voice recorder and speech-recognition software to dictate a journal, write a memoir or take notes

I wanted to share a technique that I am using a lot now both to write my journal and to take notes on various topics.  The beauty of this method is that it is very efficient and doesn’t require that you take a break from whatever activity you are doing — or even open your eyes, if you like to think and “write” in a half-sleeping state as I do.

When I first got my software and equipment my wife looked at all this, said “boy toys”, and walked out, but I am the one who is getting the last laugh now.
