- why can't I train such an application with my own writing? What better way to train it with your own voice and style?
- I don't mind training an application - I know I don't fit into your saved profiles! But at least I am consistent in my speaking.

- What about handwriting? Do you like it? I guess if you have some exercise in it you won't get tired too fast. (The drawback is, that you have to have a graphics tablet or something like that for the actual input and to figure out how to install and use it. (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306906/ (for MS Win XP) might help.))
And you won't hate those who stop audio podcasting, will you? ;)

- some more thoughts:
Though you might quite like it to speak to your computer because you seem to be like audiophile. (I didn't like when I tried it some years ago, but it might be nicer to work with more modern programs.)
Nevertheless it might be a good idea to have different possiblities of input, so you can switch them if you get bored or exhausted by one of them.
(By the way: It should be possible to record a new useful sound and handwrite some headwords about the same time... No noise from the keyboard that spoils the recording and everything ready to blog after recording :) )

- Please! You have a beautiful voice. If typing is more comfortable for you, do that first, and then read it.
