Where's the common ground between my statement and "its transcription"?

This is rubbish, upon my word!
Thank you for these valuable real-world tests. Some people may not appreciate them, but I certainly do!

Dragon test in USA:

"I'm an abominable vendor of my properties. For selling the self is not in my genes: all my ancestors did was buying, for they never had a need to do a thing to prove themselves. Then Communism, then Democracy followed, and the blue of my blood turned out my curse, not my blessing."

to this:

"I am an abominable vendor of my properties. For selling the best self is not in my jeans: all my ancestors did was buying, for they never had a need to do a thing to prove themselves. Then, not communism, then democracy, followed, and the blue of my blood turned out my curse, not my blessing."

Disregarding a few artifacts, excessive punctuation (likely due to pauses in my speech) and the contextual misspelling of the word "genes," my results appear to be acceptable.

It is obviously more accurate dealing with a more colloquial and less sophisticated or stylized vernacular.

I remain convinced that the database, to which your content is being sent to for transcription, is different from ours.

It's been remarkably accurate, even though I make little effort to articulate. Spoken: "A quarter to two" is transcribed as "1:45," and punctuations are best literally stated: comma, period, exclamation point.

I'm sorry to hear that it's been less than stellar for you - hopefully, things will improve once it's officially released overseas.

By the way, this post was dictated via Dragon.

Thank you, DMann.

It is utterly incomprehensible to me that you (and some others) obtain results of such accuracy! A veritable mistery!

There are several in my group at work, and their English is far better than the typical American's - in both pronounciation and grammar. Only one has the slightest accent - and she sounds like an east-coaster instead of a midwesterner.
