Excellent Speech to Text Tools for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning - Linkis.com | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

In a recent post I shared here a few days ago, I featured a list of three good text to speech tools for teachers. Today, I am sharing with you another list of handy tools but this time it is the other way around: speech to text. These tools will enable you to transcribe oral speech into text  which you can then copy and use anywhere you want.

Tom Perran's insight:

I use Dragon Dictation software (which I really like) but these look like good free alternatives!
