Come join us in the VOICE RECOGNITION FOR TRANSLATORS panel this Wednesday in ProZ.com’s 2015 virtual conference for International Translation Day!

In case anyone is interested and has a bit of time to spare on Wednesday (30 Sept. 2015), I will be a panellist in two of the sessions in ProZ.com’s upcoming 2015 virtual conference for International Translation Day:

‘Glossary & Terminology’, and ‘Leveraging voice recognition technology for greater efficiency panel’, both moderated by Jeff Allen. I am particularly looking forward to the speech recognition panel, where I will be discussing Dragon, CAT tools, KnowBrainer, microphones, Vocola/Unimacro, etc.

Some of you here may also have seen the session I was in in last year’s virtual conference, titled ‘Machine Translation panel from a freelancer perspective’.

(1) SPEECH RECOGNITION PANEL @ : 14:00 to 15:00 BST (http://www.proz.com/virtual-conferences/668/program/10534)

(2) GLOSSARY & TERMINOLOGY PANEL @ 18:20 to 19:20 BST (http://www.proz.com/virtual-conferences/668/program/10528)

The webinar will be recorded, so you’ll be able to watch it later if you miss it. (thanks Drew!)

Come join us in the VOICE RECOGNITION FOR TRANSLATORS for Windows only panel this Wednesday in ProZ.com’s 2015 virtual conference for International Translation Day!
Surely, with such a generic title (VOICE RECOGNITION FOR TRANSLATORS) this will touch Dragon on Mac too. I'm curious to see how it integrates with a Java app like CafeTran. Is it better than the built in Dictation? Hope someone can give info on that.

I made up the title ‘VOICE RECOGNITION FOR TRANSLATORS’ for my posts on all the mailing lists, Twitter, etc. The official titles are: ‘Leveraging voice recognition technology for greater efficiency panel’ + ‘SPEECH RECOGNITION PANEL’


What's Windows-only about any of these titles, or anything I posted above? 


As far as I know, the whole webinar is OS-agnostic. It's just an attempt to raise awareness, as so many people have no idea how great it can be to use speech recognition when translating.

I'm on Windows, so I will obviously be talking about more Windows software than Mac stuff. What we need is someone using dictation software/solutions on a Mac to speak up. There is all kinds of good Mac stuff going on, I'm just not as familiar with it. I will try to have some info on the Mac side of things ready for the webinar (time permitting!).
