Hello and Welcome,
The popular Digital Photography SIG will meet next Friday and the Main Meeting will be held on Tuesday.
Alex Zaharov-Reutt has provided us with details of the presentation he has arranged for the Main Meeting and his message is below.
Tuesday 24 July - MAIN Meeting - 5:30pm - 8:30pm
This month sees the return of Derek Austin, the Sales Director of Nuance Communications, makers of the famous Dragon Voice Dictation software that is almost everywhere - even in most smartphones these days.
I asked Derek for a description of his presentation, and he sent the following short comment:
"So what’s all this about speech recognition?
Derek Austin will talk about speech technologies in general ranging from the PC to smart phones to more general applications in call centres and the like. He’ll give a short talk about the various applications and then throw it open for discussion."
You'll be able to find out from Derek just where voice recognition technologies are today, how much they've evolved since the early days - and as an amazing bonus, Derek is bringing along two fabulous prizes for our raffle - a copy of Dragon Home, and a copy of Dragon Premium.
So, see you at the July Main Meeting of the Sydney PC Users Group!
Friday 27 July - Digital Photography - 9:30am - 12:30pm
At this month's meeting the group will enhance some of the photographs that members have taken for the ASCCA photography competition. Enhancing could include cropping, colour correction, creating black & white copies and more using GIMP or FastStone Viewer.
As always, there will be a general discussion and question and answer session at the beginning of the meeting.
I would like to thank Roger Foulds for sending out last week's newsletter. A chest infection unexpectedly put me in hospital last Friday and Roger completed the task with little notice. Thanks Roger!
