Polanski’s Twist and Esry’s Runs

Twice this week, my voice translation software has proven to be no respecter of persons:

What I actually said to my computer: You guys seen Polanski’s Oliver Twist?
How my voice software translated it:  You guys seem bland skis over the twist

And one more, where it stumbled over the name of the former Sprint president:

What I actually said to my computer: Bill Esry runs frequently
How my voice software translated it:  Bill has the runs frequently

And poor Bill; when I deleted the error and spoke it again, Dragon NaturallySpeaking still got it wrong: Bill as three runs frequently.

So I gave up and hand-typed his name.
