Yeah, man. The good stuff, man.
Elvis IS the good stuff.
And how about those Polydactyl Toebeans! What a cutie! She has assumed the belly rubs position!
Good to see Beatrix!
Hahahahahaha this one genuinely made me laugh out loud.
Auto-corrupt at its best!
Bookstore Woman. Autocorrect is not the good stuff. Bite your tongue.
Oooof. Trying to keep cows in an apartment isn’t easy.
Congratulations on your new cows, Woman. XD
It’s all worth it to make Bea laugh!
Just picturing an alternate universe where game shows give livestock for prizes: Wheel of Chickens, Bowling for Sheep, and Barnyard Sweep …
The “good stuff”. Still laughing!
Polydactyl toe bean abundance! Squeeee!
Autocorrect is very addicting. Almost as much as looking at KITTY BEANS!!!
Ah blessed is those who has their own cows. Sacred cow mother bless we all.
Ah ought-to-correct eh. Is there no way to cow-nter the fiend?
Baby elvis is the best stuff
Speech to text lacks auto-wreck. Maybe it does.
Listen to the irked Elvis. He wants you to rest. Buena idea.
Don’t text out loud
Just don’t even try, learn how to test Mom’s kittens
The fields aren’t plowed
Next time just call, remember you almost had a cow

And We Have a Winner! The Eurythmics: Sweet Dreams
Sweet cream for making cheese
Yogurt making is a breeze
I just won some cows and I’ll succeed
Everybody is looking for grilled cheese!
Some of them want to have Gouda
Some of them want know that without fail
Some of them want a fine Brie
And some of them must have Wensleydale!
Cheese and crackers (make your own)
I’ve been that dangerous with voice to text even without the good stuff. Don’t trust it!!
Don’t let the Woman onto Ameowzon. A friend of mine once took her sleep med and woke up to discover she’d ordered five new iPhones.
One of these days, I’m going to try that speech-to-text thing. I already get a kick out of the Google AI!
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Alice-Ata: We’re all ready for the cheesetaking competition. You know our strategy?
Agnes-Ata: I’ll go for the cheddar selection, while Tash heads for the Gouda. Vi, you go for the Asiago. Then we’ll meet and go for the big wheels. Remember the first rule:.
All: Don’t take more than you can lift!
Tash: Shall I concentrate on the smoked Gouda?
Agnes: Yes. Go for quality, but don’t be too picky.
Vi: Right. I’m off for the Asiago!
Serfig-Aro: And the winner of this year’s cheesetaking competition is Team Alice! (Was there any doubt?). The prize is a year’s worth of cheese production from Punn State’s own dairy herd.
Agnes: Great to be working with you again, Elsie.
Elsie: You’re the cream of the crop!
The “I won cows!” comment is downright amoosing.
This just in: BN news junior reporter laughing her head off after reading odd text and being told about “the good stuff.”
I love the conversion/translation – it’s what I found when I tried using the same speech to text programs after I lost my hand. It’s easier to type with one, then try to fix some of the speech to text programs. Dragon is not too bad after generation 6 – but I still prefer typing.
I can’t decide which I’d want more — the good stuff, cows, or kittens
Bea falling over with laughter is a very amusing image.
However, you need to listen to Nurse Cat and rest now.
OMC I do this all the time, but nothing this funny!
I love how hard Beatrix is laughing. I have had little trouble with text to speech myself, although it did recently offer an interesting rendition of the word Kentucky.
Woman continues-‘Anyway, since I can’t use my hand, I am using, Speech To Text! I hope it’s coming through, okay.’ (Book Lady and Beatrix, sees) Ebay, sense I can’t stand, I’m using fleas to text! I’m hoping to moo, today. Book Lady-“I want what she is having!” Meanwhile, Bea has rolled off the desk, laughing!
This is hilarious.
Beatrix has the ROFLOLs
This is so true! LOL! I have a friend who is almost blind. She uses That “speech to text”. I had to call her and have her son translate the text! Sometimes those texts are hilarious!
Sounds suspiciously like a BCN live report.
It’s a fine day when you win cows.
As a Rhode Islander, The Woman is placing an inordinate amount of faith in some programmer’s ability to interpret her accent. Good thing she doesn’t want quahogs, she’d break the program.
Panel three is why medical people won’t let you drive home after getting the good stuff.
Pics of ship!
Ah yes, I remember the late ’90s speech to text programs. Best summed up by the phrase “Cod am pizza ship.”
See, this is why I don’t use speech to text apps myself, and why I generally roll my eyes when I see people who do (particularly my parents) because even today it’s not reliable enough, and I often see people trying repeatedly to get it down correctly that you have to conclude that it’d literally be faster to just text it conventionally.
If you need to send a message quickly but don’t have enough hands free to do it conventionally, then I can concede how speech to text can be useful, but in most all other applications where you absolutely could spare the hands (which seems to be when I see it used the MOST)…it’s not worth the trouble in my opinion.
I love the little laughing Bea!!!
I see Trevor’s mom also being Beatrix’s mom now. That is a great panel. :)
I’ve heard of being cowed by technology, but this is udderly ridiculous.
Driving a Mercedes Benz ?
Repeat after me: Auto-corrupt is hour beast fiend.
Happy Birthday to @LizandMax!ღƪ(ˆ◡ˆ)ʃ♡ƪ(ˆ◡ˆ)ʃ♪
Modern technology has its imperfections, ya know!
Yǔyīn zhuǎi wénběn yìwèizhe chuánshū zhòng chūxiàn luànmǎ. At least according to Google translate …
Google voice-to-text is pretty reliable, really. All the others I’ve tried are mediocre at best, but that one’s pretty reliable.
I’ve always wanted to win some cows. Our yard is tiny though so the cows would have to be about 2 inches tall.
So, she thinks she’s saying one thing and the phone is doing another thing. I love talk to text, just have to reread what I just said to make corrections. Because……sometimes it makes no sense what it thinks I’m saying….
So, I’m sitting here in my hanging-basket-swing on my adorably decorated (if I do write so myself) front porch with my adorable dog sleeping under me, and a newly fledged female Rufous Hummingbird is hovering within several feet of me giving me a thorough look over. I’m thrilled. I’m thrilled to know I have yet another generation of hummers at my feeders, and thrilled to have one so curious and bold! Sigh….It looks like her mom just shooed her away. I hope mom wasn’t teaching her to stay away from me and was just competing for the feeder.
I love Beatrix’s reaction!
OT: Lady Bug
Ms Bea looks like she’s tickled to death at The Woman’s text. I have the same troubles with speech to text.
Here’s an example of what happens when I try to do speech to text.
My best friend insisted I use voice messages (not voice-to-text; you record an audio clip saying what you want to say) after I had my wrist surgery. It worked well.
Hahahahahahahaha! This is soooooo true!
