Unaware in My Underwear

Though I’ve just upgraded to the newest version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking, the voice recognition errors still occur.  Yes, DNS version 11 is better—a good investment.  But a background noise while I’m dictating, or a rushed or slurred spoken phrase, can still trip it up.  As proof, here are voice recognition errors that stood out for me this week, even as I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.

What I actually said to my computer:  Bradenton specifically
How my voice software translated it:   Braden tends specifically
