I'm not sure how many writers need to use speech to text program but I find that I'm meeting more and more often these days because of the amount of time I do write. I don't have the money to get the dragon naturally speaking software so I thought I'd look for something that was free.
Yes I do have windows speech recognition but apparently it does not understand me that well. Some of the words that I say don't translate into anything near what the sentence mean. So I google speech recognition software and I found speechnotes.co. I'm using it right now and I'm going to leave it as is without correcting any mistakes so they can see how it works.
I'm reading over what I've already spoken and there are some mistakes but I'm sitting about three feet away from my last two and they're outside noise you going on and I don't even have a headset on, plus I don't enunciate well, so I think its doing pretty well actually. This paragraph didn't come out as well as I had expected but it's not horrible.
If you've used this program before, how often do you use it?
If you've never used it before would you consider using it?
I rarely do transcription work, but when I do, I find Express Scribe useful and you can download a free version of it. You can fiddle with speed and tonality etc. But this may not be what you are looking for, and maybe you can do this too with speechnotes? I've not tried it.
windows. im sure that i have to do some figuring on my laptop, but i don't have the finger energy right now. maybe i need to start it in adminstrative? i'll find out later when my fingers feel better.
