not sure if this exists
open an audio file. it plays it back or analyzes it and interprets what is said and converts it to text.
i have no problem paying for something that works. id prefer it to be open source but at the end of the day i just need the job done.
my google fu is just serving me to apps that have nice shortcuts to pause or slow it down while you type. this is not what i am after at all.submitted by /u/asureyouknowyourself
It's that time of development again when the Fedora Design Team sends out their call for supplemental wallpapers. Artists and photographers are encouraged to participate. Matt Hartley discussed today some of the mistakes new users make with Ubuntu and offered up his best advice for avoiding them. TecMint compiled the top five reasons to install Linux and the second round of voting has begun in FOSS Force's Best Distro of 2016 contest. Some familiar names graced Google's Code-in winners and Gaming On Linux has identified the best games of 2016 through a user polling survey.
Imagine this setup:
15 inch 4K monitor
27 inch 4K external monitor
I would like 15 inch monitor to be scaled 2:1, but obviously not the external one. All instructions tell you to render everything 2:1 and then scale it down with Xrandr for the monitors that you do not want scaled.
But in this case, I would have to render 8K resolution, just to scale it down to 4K. How are we solving these cases? How does windows and mac deal with it? Is there a desktop environment that deals with this properly? What is the relation of wayland to this issue?submitted by /u/AdventOfScala
I'm the proud owner of a lappy with Nvidia Optimus (actually a 5yo Dell XPS15) and, as far as I know, it's never been turned on (the Optimus, that is). I have vague memories of installing bumblebee and precursors and turning it off then. I get >5hours of battery life so I assume it's firmly off.
My question is - is the Nvidia Optimus actually useful for anything other than games (which I don't have a use for)? Or is it just a boat anchor for programming+browsing+a little libreoffice?submitted by /u/bhepple
