Seems to work OK - talk to you computer and watch the words appear on the screen.  And when it's wrong, it's easy to edit manually.  Pedagogical applications, anyone?

Esta herramienta es muy útil, cuando se está escribiendo un texto científico, pues nos permite ir desarrollando una idea de manera muy rápida, sin preocuparnos por tener que escribir.

"Free speech to text dictation software in a browser."


Shona Whyte:

This tool works in Chrome:

1. Choose your language (default US English, but there are over a dozen more, from the main European languages to Polish, Turkish, Arabic, Japanese and Chinese)

2. Click on the green mic button

3. Say what you want to say

4. Watch your text appear, edit if necessary

5. Save, print, share ....


Martin Burrett of ICT magic:

"A useful site that allows users to dictate and generate text. A great resource for children with writing difficulties to get their ideas written quickly."
