    Stephen Hawking Page - Deconstructing English Language

    I know that this may seem somewhat abstract or even bizzare to some, but one has to ask quite fundimental questions about the written word.

        Sorry but I think we have the richest and greatest language and I don't like the way it's being eroded. 😞

          It's a bit like speed writing. I always thought when I attended school that it would have been useful to have learnt shorthand as so many teachers liked to dictate lessons.

            The English language is always evolving but I would prefer to learn a foreign language than this nonsense.

            I’m going to do this even if it kills me!

              Exactly Denise. I am looking to create a program equivalent to shorthand. I am really frustrated with my Smartbox/Grid. It is anything but smart. By the time I have typed silent letters and the rest, I am... knackered.

                Read that the MNDA is working with Google to improve our communication, just like I am. Game ON.

                    I was thinking that recording sentences and pretyped sentences are fine if asking for a cup of tea or general small chat but trying to converse with someone must be so frustrating.

                      I think most people with MND could write a book on frustration, Denise. I certainly could. As Matthew said somewhere else, the main problem is that by the time you've typed something the conversation has moved on. It's like being in a Two Ronnies sketch, if you can remember them.
                      Each day is made easier with a bit of humour.

                        Exactly, Gary, Denise. You have to live it to understand it, but boy I've cracked it. I must keep it secret to stop Google stealing my ideas.

                        I read a lot of posts on here and realise that my app will solve many problems. MNDA/Google need to pull their finger out or else I will beat them to it.

                          I read about the MNDA working with Google on next month's AGM bulletin and so hopefully we will have an update next month.

                            One thing I have found with txt to speech is you have to forget spelling and just write how it sounds. My biggest moan is the lack of emotion, even Data sounded human. 😉

                              I can imagine your problems because I was, not so much now, a very fast typist. No way could I have kept up with a conversation. If you don't react quick enough people think your not there.
                              I always wondered what they use in court when you see someone using some kind of equipment to follow proceedings.
                              yes I do recall the 2 Ronnie.
                              well done to you graham if you have sorted this one. Shame Google didn't get into it a lot earlier.
                              🙂
