Speech to text apps - Android

Help! I managed to shatter my wrist and I need to find a relatively good app to use before going insane.

I’ve heard that you can put the google docs app on your phone use it to do voice-to-text. Of course, there is some degree of misheard words and punctuation to go back and correct, but it’s supposed to be an easy to use option. I’ve heard great things about Dragon, but it’s pricey.

I’ve used google docs on my phone with voice to text. It works OK for getting down the gist of things, although needs a fair bit of editing with my kiwi accent :slight_smile: (although I normally need to edit quite a lot with all my typos too!!) Dragon can be ‘trained’ to have a 97% + accuracy so that might be a better option but I hear the best version for that is the PC version, rather than the app.

I am so sorry to hear that ! I fractured my wrist several years ago and started out with a cast, but then the “bones moved” (that’s how the doctor put it). They took off the cast and gave me something called an extender (rods in my wrist/arm with a rod on the outside holding things steady). I had to have that for six weeks, but the good news was I could type. I really feel for you! I’ve used the Windows speech tool, but speaking instead of writing doesn’t work well for me, so I don’t have any good ideas. I hope you are better soon!

I’ve found Otter at Otter.ai to be incredibly useful, simple yet powerful.

I’ve been testing the free version and I’m surprised at its accuracy.
