I guess you missed Alades 2nd post, its council meetings and the content is meant for public viewing. Of course due diligence should be applied or as its otherwise known as common sense. I gave him an overview of a service he could offer, that is all.

Try coming up with something constructive rather than ripping someone trying to help.

I really appreciate everyone's advice and opinions regarding my questions As for the transcription software, I'm not a fan of it myself but I do feel it's something they want and will eventually go with regardless of my recommendation.
I know Nuance's software is probably the most popular voice transcription software on the market, but of you who have experience with this type of software, are there any other compare-able/better products out there?

Nuance produce dedicated versions of their product for both the medical and legal fields which says to me they are pretty good at what they do.

The product does work in a single user, spend a few hours training it scenario but not in the multi voiced, talking over each other meeting scenario.

If they go with it make sure you voiced that you dont recommend it for them for this type of application.

To be completely honest, if I were you I would find a way to bow out of this one. Even a recommendation with a disclaimer stating you don't agree with their plan will not end well for you. It will be, after all, your recommendation they likely go with regardless of your objections. Why would you make any recommendation about a solution you know will fail?!?!?

Simply tell them that you have no recommendations for this type of software as there is no software that will make this scenario work. If they move forward anyway, it is their own issue and you will at least look like you knew what you were talking about. If you do recommend (again, even with the disclaimer) you will look, at best, like someone who made a haphazard and ill-informed recommendation. Not to mention the support issues you will no doubt be asked to fix, knowing full well it will never meet their needs. Seems like a silly path to take, IMO.

You're absolutely right O.T, I did miss the second post and stand suitably chastised. I blame a rather manic day and a rather bad mood, as poor an excuse as that is. Apologies.
