There's a new forum (mailing list format) for translators who use or are interested in using speech recognition:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SR_for_translators

Site should be working Dec 3, 2004

I don't know why you should have got a blank page, Jack, it's working fine now. Yahoo has been somewhat vulnerable to hackers recently, maybe that's the problem.

Re: name change. Yes it started as VR_translators, but it was changed by mutual consent to SR_for_translators as this was more appropriate (the term is speech recognition - voice recognition refers to systems that recognises people's voices for identification and security purposes).

cheers, Jim

I thought VR would suit better Dec 3, 2004

as speeech limits to technical aspects and voice goes slightly beyond. Additionally also the group is concentrating only on one tool, such as Dragon speech.Brandis.

Mr. Turner, I didn´t mean it negatively. I had the impression that only one tool is being discussed. Personally I am perfectly happy with Dragon speech latest edition.That is all.Brandis

Not so, Brandis Dec 3, 2004

SR_for_translators is:
"A discussion group for translators who use speech recognition software in their work, or who are interested in doing so. This is the place to discuss the pros and cons of the various SR packages, such as Dragon Naturally Speaking, ViaVoice, Microsoft Speech Recognition, as standalone programs or in combination with translation packages such as Trados, Deja Vu, Star Transit, SDLX, WordFast, etc. Suitable for the curious, beginners and more experienced users."

Not just for Dragon, in other words. The fact that not many other packages have been discussed probably reflects the market share of DNS more than anything. If you want to see discussion of other packages, go ahead and start one!

As for the title, SR or VR, 'speech recognition' is the recognised name for the field as far as I understand it. Everyone on the list seems to be happy about the change, I haven't heard any negative comments so far.

cheers, Jim
