Hoping to take ancient Hebrew. Problem is I can't write much (or type much more). In Latin my main way of memorizing things before my first year was through writing and rewriting things (e.g., grammar lists, grammar notes).
Think w/ ancient language like this there will be less programs that might make computer work possible/good, such as a dictation software.
Any ideas on how to make this work?
A friend is taking class. So if she stays in class & there's a copier there I could copy her notes instead of write in class after work (which is already a wreck over my inability to handle enough repetition).
Doesn't look like a good idea but I so want to make it work....

Don't know if I'm a bit late but here goes -
I'm studying Classics at Uni so a lot of the words I need to use in my essays are Greek or Latin rooted which most voice recognition softwares don't have in their libraries. However I have been told that if/when I ever get my Dragon Naturally Speaking software from the DSA I'll be able to 'teach' it the words I need.
There are probably Hebrew dictionaries that can be provided for the software to allow the computer to recognise the alphabet etc and then you would have to teach it ancient Hebrew as you went along (much the same as if you were trying to read Chaucer to English software - it wouldn't pick up the archaic language.)
Also - kudos for doing something so out of the ordinary, it sounds really interesting!
