Not that often. It is good for writing long, formal documents. Not so much
for short messages. It is not good for editing papers, which is mostly what
I do these days.

I expect there will soon be AI versions of voice input transcription. Maybe
online? I expect they will blow Dragon Speak out of the water. They will be
far better. I say that for two reasons:

ChatGPT translation from Japanese into English is far better than Google
translate (https://translate.google.com). The Bots have generated a lot of
accurate linguistic data. I expect it is nothing like human knowledge of
grammar, but it works.

I have recently discovered that AI based online OCR programs are far
superior to desktop OCR programs such as Adobe Acrobat. I used Adobe
Acrobat OCR to make old documents such as ICCF3 "searchable." You can
export the resulting text to Microsoft Word or a text file. Recently
ChatGPT recommended I try the Amazon AWS Textract online OCR program. I
tried it. I did a file-compare of the AWS output compared to the Adobe
Acrobat output. AWS has many fewer OCR errors. I think you could correct
many voice input errors by using the AI linguistics-based methods, and the
pattern recognition algorithms. I think the pattern recognition algorithms
can be applied to audio track data in a way that is similar to images of
printed letters.
