First use of VOICE TYPING in a Google Document

The service can be used only in Google Chromium.
You open a Google Document and you click
tools
voice typing
then you choose the language ( I prefer US English)
and you click the microphone icon.
It works pretty well if you have a good microphone,
I personally used an external one.

The short text I dictated was from GEORGE ORWELL's book,
"Animal Farm".

Mr. Jones common of the manor Farm, had locked the henhouses for the night, but I was too drunk to remember this to shut the pump house. With a ring of light from his Lantern dancing

As soon as the light in the bedroom went out there was a stirring and a fluttering all through the farm buildings. Word had gone around during the day at all major commands the prize medal Wine Bar, have had a strange dream on the previous night and wished to

At the end of The Big Barn, on a sort of raised platform, major was already ensconced on his

WORD COUNT 404

The words in red contain a spelling error, or are completely wrong.
The words in blue are the ones that the service SHOULD HAVE TYPED INSTEAD.
As I'm a non-native speaker of English, I suppose I've mispronounced a few.


The service isn't flawless, but it looked like a miracle to me!
I sort of felt like, Scotty, on the spaceship Enterprise, dictating to my computer!
Watch him trying to dictate to a pre-voice typing one
on youtube!


There are a lot of extra things  you can do with the text (e.g edit your text), apart from dictating
that you can see here:

Αναβάθμιση από το Fedora 22 στο Fedora 23 χρησιμοποιώντας το dnf-plugin-system-upgrade

 

Αποχαιρετούμε λοιπόν το fedup!

 


Χρειάζονται μόνον οι παρακάτω τρεις εντολές στο τερματικό:


1]   dnf upgrade

[μέσα στις τελευταίες ενημερώσεις του συστήματός σας

θα περιλαμβάνεται και το νέο

dnf-plugin-system-upgrade]


2]   dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=23 --best

3]   dnf system-upgrade reboot

και... υπομονή, διότι πρέπει να κατεβούν από το διαδίκτυο εκατοντάδες πακέτα,
να εγκατασταθούν και να ελεγχθούν.

Όλα γίνονται αυτομάτως.
Απλά πληκτρολογούμε μερικά y σε δυο-τρεις ερωτήσεις
που μας υποβάλλονται.
