surreal voice recognition

In 2006, I tested Dragon Naturally Speaking 8, and with just five minutes training, it only got two words incorrect

I was inspired to write this piece in the early nineties by the vagaries of voice recognition software, though I am sure it has improved since then. After I composed the first piece, I read it back to the computer and the second version is what it thought it heard! Update: in 2006, I tested Dragon Naturally Speaking 8, and with just five minutes training, it only got two words incorrect.

surreal voice recognition!

a poem by Mike Bliss

like a baby, it listens
it can't discriminate
it tries to understand
it reflects what it thinks you say
it gets it wrong... sometimes
sometimes it gets it right.
One day it will grow up,
like a baby, it has potential
will it go to work?
will it turn to crime?
you look at it indulgently.
you can't help loving it, can you?

and as reflected:

through voice recognition

a poem by like myth

like a baby, it nuisance
it can't discriminate
it tries to oven
it reflects lot it things you say
it gets it run sometimes
sometimes it gets it right
won't day it will grow bop
Ninth a baby, it has provincial
will it both to look?
will it the two crime?
you move at it inevitably
you can't help loving it, cannot you?
