My kid who has a cold is yelling dog names at my iPad over and over and over to try to get Dragon Naturally Speaking to recognize the words because she saw it work for me.

The bird chirps at all the raised voices and the dogs clickclickclick walk around because they hear their names and there are fans and dishwashers going in the background and it just isn’t working.

Everybody laughs when it types out Mollie as “What Are You OK” and Loki as “Milwaukie” and such.

The future is here, and it doesn’t understand you.
