I took to it fairly quickly, but by then, I was already used to speaking out my articles.
When I first started out, one of the things that Mark recommended was using a program like audacity to talk out your ideas and then transcribe them to make articles. I took that to heart, and from the start did my articles that way. I have found that conversational writing works better anyway, so I have a conversation, and by the time I am done, I usually have several articles.
having gotten used to article writing that way, I found transitioning to DNS easy. It wont be perfect when you start out, but even with having to edit them, it saves hours of work. Also DNS is always training itself, so the more you do, and save your user files, the better it will get. Right now, I get about 96% accuracy.
You do have to learn to enunciate, and you have to remember to talk out your punctuation. however, it only took me a few days to get used to it. When I first started, I was freelance writing still, so I was doing a lot of articles every day. That helped get used to it pretty quick.
the thing is, it trained me as much as I trained it. and because of the work I did there, when I do my audio recordings, and videos, I find that I enunciate much better than in my early days before I used it.
