Where: Sewickley Library

When: 10:00a.m. to 12:00p.m.

What: The Magic of Speech: Editing and Writing With Speech Technology

  • Part One: Do you want to stay healthy and avoid repetitive strain injury? Short on time and interested in maximizing word count? Have you ever considered writing with dictation or Speech-To-Text? Join author Stephanie Keyes as she discusses diction software, strategies for getting started, and her recommended tools for a successful dictation setup.
  • Part Two: Have you been told to read your own work? Does the sound of your own voice put you to sleep? Leverage the power of T-T-S (Text-To-Speech) technology to help you edit your work! Stephanie will share her own personal editing strategies. In addition, she’ll demonstrate how to use tools like an iPad and Kindle to have your own work read to you to ensure you catch everything.
