Software for Costs Lawyers

Filed UnderLegal Costs  

Some time ago specialist costs counsel Mark Friston recommended to me Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition software. I recently got around to purchasing a copy and have to admit that for someone such as myself who is, to put it mildly, “challenged” when it comes to touch typing this is a great product.

However, a word of warning. If you do any work from home this software is not ideal if you have recently acquired a small puppy. When checking my Advices, Points of Dispute and Skeleton Arguments I tend to find them peppered with phrases such as:

"Take that out of your mouth this minute Scraps"

"Down Scraps down I said down down I’m not going to tell you again down down no down down"

"Look what you've just done on the carpet you bad dog”

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and prosperous post-Jackson New Year from myself, everyone at Gibbs Wyatt Stone and Scraps.
