Close, But No Cigar

I've mentioned a couple times things about Vista's Voice Recognition and Dragon NaturallySpeaking, and some of their quirks. I haven't actually shown a direct comparison of them, so I decided to do that.

I decided to take a recording that was almost all speech, and play it with the microphone set to loopback, to compare the two. I got the assistance of Krayzie for this since he uses Dragon, and I did the Vista. I chose as my test file one of the Woot podcasts that I had saved. So here are the results:

Dragon NaturallySpeaking by Kathryn at Wednesday November that he and his bypass is brought to you by him and would eat eat eat eat in a day or in time and reaching on an a voicemail comes from Boston at a caller to say I don't or ordered him to a what I do and you will need to own their own Kerry followed her back to him and you are writing their own thing I think is they are taking a guess as to how is also available as a voicemail state now as you see how you can use the same house you are going and they shot at him and asked the product you are or what is in can't Park is a habit that is due on your phone to extend anyone actually order over the phone while you're that's available to all you have to do is going to get better than to read it all yet it was written by Jim iTunes, iPhoto to answer the things that are a eating anything on them even like the photo blog about you now they are certainly less of it that is you have any discretionary funds left a budget after having bought her a so that's what you do in that didn't want you to pay phones are into is if you have a question or comment for a podcast you can had not or leave a voice message saying that you should phone homo.

Vista Speech Recognition

Not close to each other, and, frankly, not close to the original. But quite interesting nonetheless, to see what the different engines could get. For comparison, luckily the original podcast is still available for download.
