I like the title... many of us have just been liberated, or trying to figure it out, or are liberated practicing, and learning individuals. Freedom is often just another word for nothing left to loose... Gee Janice wisdom. Different things to gain if we choose to seek them, I might add. Janice's words were some what true for me. I had lost me, lost a poor choice in mate of over 16 years, the girls grew up and left, parents dead, so I got a dog, a small apartment at the beach, kept a secure job, with little pay, but it was familiar....... and went about exploring liberation. I think I am doing ok, and wish my denial to continue.... who else is dealing with liberation issues ?????

Hey Molly!

I'm on a posting binge, and haven't talked to you in quite a bit. Great to see you over here!

As for the liberation brew stuff... it's brewing.

Liberation brew, is... Radical Political & Social Movements & Education in those topics. It's River's life work (Dr. C. River Smith, co-founder of allaboutcounseling).

In a few short words, River is an "overly educated & informed", intelligent, warm, loving, and socially responsible individual. He has a lot to teach, and he's a wonderful teacher. He's not much of a typist, but I hope to give him a hand where I can.

He'll be coming up here to host some thread discussions in the coming months.

🙂 Good to see your nick up here Molly. You & Tez, who'd have thought the two of you would follow these threads all these years. Feels like just yesterday when AAC began, and it also feels like a lifetime ago for me.

All these years.... yea... all these years.... How about you have GL hook you up with a program that he can speak to that posts ??? I am sure it is out there. I like the concept, and gosh and golly there is liberation every where.... This site has always been a great place to come to learn, share, vent, grow, and find support, and even though it has had its growth spurts, still I find where I drop in when I can.
Blessings.

Microsoft Office XP and Office 2003 (Word) both do speech recognition. Basically you run through a 15 minute "training session" for the application and it learns what the sound of your voice is like. It was surprisingly accurate if I remember. Last time we demoed it though, we turned the mike on after the presenter had trained the application and were screwing around with it. The presenter welcomed the audience, and he had the screen projected onto the wall so the whole room could see. He said something like "Welcome everyone. Let's get started with the presentation." And what got typed was something like "I like mustard on my hot dogs." I kid you not. The audience just about died laughing and paid close attention after that.

hmm, voice recognition comes standard on Windows XP? Do you know the name of the application Ginger? Great suggestion Molly!

Yeah, that would be awesome to have a voice recognition for him... I'll get on that when I get "back".

For those who read over here & have their ears on, I want to annouce that...

I'll be away on vacation from March 10-21. So, if someone needs me, or wants to make a donation, I will do my best to get back to everyone on March 22.

Actually, it comes standard in the Microsoft Office Professional suite. If you launch Microsoft Word and go to Tools -> Speech, you get the option to install the speech recognition files. I keep mine turned off since it tends to go nuts during phone conversations. 🙂

Ginger - unfortunately, he doesn't have the office suite! haha He just has what comes standard, such as Word Pad, etc.

MJ - thanks for asking! Kayaking the 83 miles of the Rio Grande called the Lower Canyons. It's a repeat trip of the Lower Canyons just outside of Big Bend Ntl Park, one that I did January 2001. It'll be warmer, but the river is much lower, & that'll be the biggest difference. The desert is in bloom this time of year as well, though year to year blooms vary based on rain, and this year is predicted to be average.

See ya'll when I return.

Love, SC

Unfortunatley, Microsoft Office is an expensive package, around 500 bucks if you buy it outright. Sometimes I forget that not everyone is a corporate drone chained to his PC and drinks her kool-aid out of her Microsoft corporate mug each morning. 🙂

There are other cheaper packages out there that don't do all of the other Office features like spreadsheets and presentations and fancy word processing. Some reviews that might be helpful: http://www.consumersearch.com/.....story.html
