[Athen] Dragon 9

Sorry I have been at Bett show for the last week - A bit belatedly - we have
been using Dragon NaturallySpeaking Preferred vers 9 and it even works with
commands to go to separate areas when using Moodle. Really quick to get up
and running and when you use Parallels on the Mac with Windows XP and a USB
headset it still seems to recognise my speech without training! I did find
the mic dipped out at times and had to use audio setup to make the best of
it - obviously one training script improves the output further.

Best wishes E.A.

We've had the No Hands mouse (http://www.footmouse.com/) in our place for
a few years now. I've had about 20 different people, mostly faculty and
staff, try it, and a couple of those took it back to their offices for
longer term evaluations of up to a couple of weeks. Nobody selected it as
a mouse alternate. Fine motor control with feet is something that appears
to take quite a lot of practice!

As for question 2, yes we're using Dragon 9 now, though we don't have many
hours of experience with it yet. Seems pretty accurate is about all I can
say about it right now.
