Dragon 6

The upgraded version of Dragon Dictate (Dragon Professional) version 6 is due to be released any time soon. There are still many bugs in version 5 that the various upgrades have not fixed ye yet. Indeed many of them are a hang-over from version 4. What are the main bugs we need to test the new version for? Here is my list. Feel free to add any more. I will test it as soon as my pre-order is available! Continue reading ⟩

LibreOffice

I am running OS X 10.11 El Capitan. For a while now  I have not been able to open my old ClarisWorks documents. ( I think maybe since Appleworks 6 or so.)  I have not thrown them out in case a solution would arise one day and thankfully I have found one.  You can open old ClarisWorks document using Libre Office.  It doesn’t seem to work on drawings, but it does work on word-processing documents.

Dragon 6

It looks like Nuance are about to release a new version of Dragon for Mac. It’s called ‘Dragon Professional Individual for Mac.’ Let’s hope the ‘Professional’ in the name means a product that has finished beta testing.  Dragon for Mac version 5 looked promising but turned out to be a disaster. (You can read about it here.)  I suggested here that you not buy version 5 but instead wait for the release of version 6. Well here it is. I’ve pre-ordered a version of Dragon for Mac 6 and I’ll write a review as soon as it arrives.  It’s criminal that Nuance never fixed the bugs in version 5 yet they are charging $300 for version 6. If you live in Australia it’s $475.  (No that was not a typo – $475 for a product that, based on Nuance’s history, probably won’t work.)

netflix

I recently tried watching a Netflix movie on a data projector and it would not work.  I have subscribed to Netflix, but my data projector is old and Netflix have a copy protection on their service that won’t let you play to older data projectors.  Thankfully there is a way around this.  You just need to set your web browser to an older version,  and it will use an older piece of technology to play the movie which will work on an old data projector.

Google play

If you live in Australia and you have a pre-paid Telstra Plan you can use your spare credit to make purchases.  And by spare credit, I mean the entire amount that you top up your phone with each month.  For example, I am on a $30 a month prepaid Telstra plan. I get $700  worth of calls plus  3 GB of data, Yet, at the end of the much I still have that $30 in my Telstra account, and  I can use the entire $30 to buy movies with for ‘free’.  It sound strange  I know but that’s how it works.  It only works on Android phones. It does not work on an iPhone.  But there is a way to get the best of both worlds…

Apple Keynote

This is a feature that is sorely missing in Apple keynote. The ability to create a loop within Keynote. For example you may want have a loop of 4-5 slides at the start of a presentation while people are waiting, and then start the presentation without having to exit and open a new presentation.  Or you may want to have a loop in the middle of a presentation, for example some photos that rotate while someone is singing, and then continue on with the presentation when you are ready.  There is no way of doing this within Keynote itself but here is a workaround that will get you out of trouble.
