    It makes my fingers ache when I think about how long it must have taken to transcribe Daniel Whiston's interview with Alan Moore Nah – just run it through voice-recognition software and then copy-edit/proofread.

      Mike,Have you heard Alan Moore speak? You pretty much have to know what he is saying to recognize the words.

        Well, there is that.I'm not going to say that my brother David is hard to understand (he isn't), but last i heard he was writing his best-selling books with VR software…

          While Alan has a very good point about Moore's speech, I'd be interested to hear what type your brother uses, Mike, as I've yet to find a VR application that doesn't require as much time to proofread and correct the mistakes in the transcription as it would have taken to write the whole thing out yourself.
