Voice to text

Postby oldtrucker » Mar 24th, 2017, 3:06 pm

Does anyone out there have any recommendations for 'voice to text'.What kind of device or program would you use if writing a book 250,000 words plus.My typing speed is pathetic,and when I pick up from the last time I sat down things get screwed up.
I started writing it a couple of years ago,and I have realized it's not going to get done unless I change my methods.I'm a slow learner I guess.
I need something that doesn't need to be 'online' for an extended period.
Any ideas?

Sorry no idea. Check the website.

I think Google might have one that works with Android.

Checked on Google play and there are several that you can try including Dragon.

Dragon is the big one.

I thought you could also do voice to text with Windows 10 (Cortana)?

Dragon dictation for iPhone for sure, I've used it but it's no better,I found, than using factory siri.
Not sure about Android but I've found both are supported for these types of apps.

Notes or memos have voice recognition and I can't say for certain but you won't find anything free that's better.
Would so rather be over educated that a knuckle dragging Neanderthal bereft of critical thought and imagination. Although in the case of Neanderthals, that's quite the insult.

Just strikes me that voice to text is quite imperfect regardless what is used.

A newby here first post, Hi everyone.
If you have Gmail try Google Drive to do Voice to text. I use it for short stuff and it works great I don't know about a whole book, LOL
Open Google Drive, create a blank document.
Go to the menu Tools/Voice typing
Make sure your Mic is on and click "Speak to type"

Let me know how it works for you
