    Writing Manuscripts

    Greetings from the Other Side - well, Downunder.......

    Am thinking of importing a lot of material into W97 a Mss and would appreciate any pointers to anything anywhere on using W97, as a Writer.
    Also thinking of Dragondictate Mobile - any experiences?

    Somebody else once told me it's easy and went into a foreign-language discussion about writing macros.....

    Cheers,
    John

    That's the beauty of Woody's books. They have pith, but are easy to understand... I used them as a true neophyte, and can't live without them now.

    You may also want to view the "Mere Mortals" archive at http://www.woodyswatch.com/wowmm/archives.asp mentioned in a previous thread here.

    As to dragondictate mobile -- sorry, I can't help you. But I'm sure someone else will pipe in.

    Woody is the *The* authority on using Word. You should try to get hold of a copy of his Word 97 Annoyances (Nutshell Handbook)

    I second the recommendation to Word 97 Annoyances. Excellent book. As to Dragon, which feature would you like comment on: the "mobile" aspect, or the program generally?

    Re: Writing Manuscripts

    Hello Karen, Conrad & folks,
    Thank you.
    Am facing meeting a promise to finish some Mss a.s.a.p.
    2 considerations:
    1. Importing existing material into W97
    2. Writing (very fast!) quite a lot more.
    So, re Dragon (or others!) I am lucky in that over many years I learned to dictate directly into mini-recorders for Management Articles etc. and to dictate on the fly, complete with punctuation.
    However, am a lousy typist and can't afford to pay a Secretary as I am outofitall.
    I was very disappointed last time I looked into Direct Input a year or so ago and ever hopeful............
    Especially interested if anyone has tried using tape input to mic vs Digital Direct Recorder as in Dragon Mobile.

    Cheers,
    John
