By the way

 I'm trying to catch them, but if I seem to say words that make no sense, please read them aloud. Chances are high that Siri  transcribed something it thought it heard me say which is usually a homonym or something that sounds similar if one is speaking indistinctly. (Sinus infections do not help!)  Capitalization is also a bit odd, since when I stop to correct something it usually capitalizes when I start recording again. And I cannot see the difference between a comma or a period anymore.

When i'm posting in a hurry and forgot to check, when my eyes are fuzzy or when I'm too tired to fight with the insertion point on mobile, I miss mistakes. I apologize! I'm still a perfectionist when it comes to posted fiction, but when it's just a quick post i'm mostly editing to make sure it's comprehensible rather than mistake free. I'm afraid I've hit the "good enough" stage.
It will be easier if/when dreamwidth finally updates to be more mobile compatible; right now the type font for the post entry box is just below my range of vision, and scroll doesn't work properly so I can only see the first screen of what I'm posting. I reported the latter years ago since it affects accessibility to the site on standard iOS, but they never fixed it.

It's such a big mental Leap learning to compose orally rather than by typing. It really does use a different part of the brain. Maybe I will become a better speaker in person if I keep practicing. As it is I'm already reaching for the dictation button every time I post. Someday, I'm going to have to get a new computer; I know modern OS X has voice dictation button just like iOS does.
