Listening to the conversations between lawyer and painter from 80s.
[One of two men writing on typewriter]
A: These ambitions still seem to be science-fiction. But what’s being released now...
B: It’s not science-fiction. A sound engineer from radio told me that
A: But correcting your confused thoughts is still science-fiction. [seriously]
A:For me what’s not science fiction is[…] So far two things already exist in my range of interests- text correction. One way of correction is dictionary you have in computer, either dictionary shows you errors, or corrects them automatically. And another is typo correction. Computer eliminates them based on probability , considering correct words and context. You can write in mess.. Like monkey [laughing] and the computer will correct it. The greatest achievement will be the ability to dictate without using keyboard. Or maybe even bigger achievement , a translation of handwriting into computer. The software already exists and costs about 100 000 francs. That’s beyond my possibilities. But in 3-4 years it will become far more common for sure.
B: [laughing]Kids will use it to play.[both laughing]
