Which is what the inter-text is: the impossibility of living outside the infinite text -- whether this text be Proust or the daily newspaper or the television screen: the book creates the meaning, the meaning creates life.

Use LilySpeech to Dictate and Write Text

Google Docs just added voice typing in 2015, and I hope you've never seen someone writing in this manner at a nearby cubicle at work. If you own a workspace enough to engage in voice typing, then you ought to know that Google has widened its abilities to voice type. Aside from using your voice to type, you can now also use your voice to format and edit a document. Software like LilySpeech also runs with the same feature but for an affordable price.

Google Docs will need you to stay online to access your documents. But with LilySpeech, you just have to download the software and it will run to take your dictations as it writes on your computer. The software runs amazingly with Google Chrome so you can send text messages using your Android or Windows gadgets. All you need to do is to customize the words, so it will be recognized by the software. Hence, you can write email or documents through dictations.

Voice typing can only be accessed using a Chrome browser. Voice typing may be available in many different languages, however, voice commands for editing and format are only available in English.

If you want to voice type, you simply have to click the microphone icon, and start dictating what you want to write. Your voice is transcribed into words, which may need you to know a variety of commands to format and edit.

For instance, if you want to put punctuation marks, you can say “comma”, “period”, or “question mark”. You can also say “select paragraph”, “select line”, or “select next word”, or any other part of your document that you need to format or edit. Editing can be done by cutting, copying or pasting voice commands. You can also dictate for bold or italics words, align the page or alter the text color. Just like Google Docs, LilySpeech may apply the same features.

Lastly and perhaps the most important is to have the software hear your voice clearly to be able to write an email or document. Go slow or at a pace where your dictations can be recorded by LilySpeech. If you intend to undo what you just have said, simply say “undo” and it will take you back to the previous command.

Neverwhere
Neverwhere: Author's Preferred Text - Neil Gaiman

I enjoyed this after a bit. The first 30 to 40 percent I found slow. But the book picks up momentum and I liked how we get to see more of the London Below via other characters when we're not following the main characters of Richard and Door.

 

Richard Mayhew finds himself helping a young woman one night and it changes his life forever. Without realizing it, helping the woman named Door will cost Richard his life as he knows it when he finds himself pushed out of his reality. Being lost about what to do, Richard goes looking for Door and finds out about London Below.

 

I liked Richard though I found him to be a little slow on the uptake sometimes. But I think that Gaiman did a good job of having a readers see things through Richard's eyes.

 

This book is told in the third person, and we get to follow a number of characters around. We have the Lady Door, the Marquis, and a woman called Hunter who's the best hunter in London Below. When Door goes on a quest to figure out who killed her family and why these four characters end up going on a series of mini-quests.

 

I kind of like how Gaiman mixes history in this book along with some cultural significance to people who are from Britain.

 

The writing was good, but as I said above, the flow was off for me for a good portion of the book.

 

The setting was awesome and I found myself interested in finding out more about those who live in London Below.

 

The ending felt a bit anti-climatic to me. But all in all, this was a pretty good story.
