I publish Interesting Internet Finds monthly in the Boca Raton Computer Society’s Boca Bits monthly newsletter, and share them through APCUG‘s PUSH program  with other computer/technology user group newsletter editors.

Each month, I find many more things than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used for the newsletter on this blog most Fridays.

I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there for you. Check them out for yourself and let me know what you think.

I Used Dictation and Voice Control for a Week. Here’s What Happened
If you have ever thought about using voice control and dictation with your computer and smartphones, you should read this post. I occasionally use voice control, but I don’t think I am ready to do away with my keyboarding just yet. And, I type fast enough that I don’t think dictation will help me much.


I have not necessarily checked each link or process out, but if listed I have used the site enough to trust them.

That said, please let me know if something doesn’t work correctly, or the listed site has incorrect information.
