Hello and Welcome,
The Main Meeting presentation from Derek Austin, Nuance was, as always, very instructive. Derek gave us a rundown on the new Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 Professional, which is faster, 20% more accurate than Version 9 and transcribes words to screen in half the time. You can also use it to control your computer using the speech recognition facility.
There are several versions of Dragon and price ranges from $199.00 through to over $1000.00.
Derek also supplied a copy of Dragon 10 Professional, PaperPort 11 and PDF Creater for the raffle. To the winners congratulations and our thanks to Derek.

Tip of the Week
This week's tip is for those of you who use your USB to copy data from one machine to another. By holding down the shift key every time you insert the USB drive it will circumvent Windows AutoPlay behaviour and thereby making any malware that might have sneaked onto the thumb drive less likely to run automatically.
Please remember if your e-mail address is changed for any reason at all, unless you tell me your new address then you will not receive these weekly updates! Any change of address should be notified to firstname.lastname@example.org
So until next week, health and happiness.
Please e-mail this newsletter to
