Sandy Millin: Micro-dictations

Sandy Millin: Micro-dictations | TELT |
Choose an excerpt from a long text or a very stand-alone short text, not more than about 3 sentences long. It should be at or slightly higher than the students’ current level.
 Use a programme like ‘Audacity’ (freely downloadable software) or to isolate the clip that you want to use.
 In class, tell students that they will listen to the clip as many times as they want to, with the aim of reproducing exactly what they hear.

This tool works in Chrome:

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 ....

"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."

Jim Lerman's insight:


This app works very well. It's not quite up to the standards of Dragon Naturally Speaking, but then again, it is free.

Shona Whyte's insight:

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?

Love the free part.

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.

Marche correctement et permet de dialoguer en français
