Voice recognition software-a nightmare!

So this post is about my latest (mis)adventures in my new job- using a voice recognition software to document notes for my patients in the new electronic medical records system that requires people to either type (which I am very slow at) or use this software. I am trying to train the software to recognize my accent, with hilarious consequences at times.

Here’s how I feel about it-DSC05337

Technology has huge strides made

Typing is now archaic; instead

There is voice recognition software

For those unfamiliar with it, beware!

For it has transformative power unique

To mutate the words that you speak

You can witness your words chosen with care

Metamorphose into monstrosities, so beware!

The pristine documentation in which you took pride

May be so distorted that you want to hide

What’s worse is that it could offensive sound

Four-letter words might have space found

In the letter addressed to your superior colleague

You chide yourself for the accent with which you speak..

A never-ending adventure it is now for me

As I read my distorted documents amusingly!
