Mum can you dictate for me

This is what I've been asking all day. She's done it a few times but she tends to avoid it like God-worshippers avoid logic.

I think the combination of having to read slowly, and having to listen to me read it back just as slow sends her to sleep. Anyway so who do you get to dictate to you? For so long I've been dictating from mp3's but dictating from a live person, new material from a newspaper is testing me. I don't seem to be getting as fast a speed, probably cause a real person speeds up and slows down much more naturally then the specifically timed 5 minute takes.

Another reason why shorthand classes would be awesome!
