The Dragon Test

I’m trying to get a hold of Dragon to review for the x-mas wishlist this year, but in the meantime, I tried their online typing test. What they do is they let you pit your skills against someone speaking while Dragon transcribes it for you. I tried it several times and was only able to get up to 84wpm, which is probably far better than most could do. However, the Dragon side of the test typed at 154wpm.

So while you’ll never get close to that, go give it a shot and see how well you do.

If i’m able to get a copy of Dragon I’ll see if it actually does perform that well. I used it a little about 10yrs ago and it didn’t perform very well at all, so I really want to see how much better it’s gotten.
I’ll keep you posted and I’ll try to remember to come back here and update this post with a link to the review when it’s done.
