The development of mobile platforms has led to the development of hundreds of apps that give users the ability to capture websites, take notes, and help with a person’s daily business tasks. Some users of modern smartphones (and other mobile devices) routinely complain about the reliability of the on-screen keyboard interface, as communication is as important to the development and outcome of projects as ever. For this reason, some developers have begun creating applications that allow users to dictate to their devices; turning spoken words into text. Here are three of the most reliable options to turn your voice into text.
One good option is the #1 audio dictation software, Dragon. This app is very simple. In fact, it has only one button; tap it to record, and again to stop. Once you finish dictation, the text will show up, which can be a little discombobulating at first, but it doesn’t take long to do it. With the renowned accuracy of Dragon software behind the app, you will be able to produce lengthy emails, notes, status updates, and more. Copying the text is a cinch, as is saving it for later.
For years, Evernote has been the predominant note-taking application on the Android platform, helping users keep track of their ideas and managing useful content. The app has always allowed users to capture and store sound bytes, but now it provides the option to convert those audio files into text format. Users can keep both the audio file and the transcribed text file together so that they have access to both. This extraordinarily useful option provides an outlet in which to cross-check the two to ensure everything was translated properly.
Besides capturing audio to text, with Evernote you can produce notes, collect information, and catalog that information, and have the data at your fingertips in seconds. The app also has options to chat with collaborators and share files, providing the seamless cooperation tool you need in today’s fast-moving business environment.
