One of the bonuses of using Dragon Voice Recognition Software is the unexpected laugh it occasionally provides. Here's one from a German translation I am doing and it might amuse Australians:

The Neuenburg was once a centre of mediaeval court culture and later became the residence and hunting lodge of the chooks of Saxony-Weissenfels.

Rather more alarming Dragon error Apr 4, 2005

I dictated one of the purposes of a company as "carrying out tourist activities" and found that it had printed "carrying out terrorist activities"!

Excuse me if you are alerted to messages in this old thread. I am using this post to experiment with downloading images into forums, since the way I used to do it is no longer valid. No luck so far.

OK, I've got it to work now.
