Dictation - Online Speech Recognition

Dictation - Online Speech Recognition | Interesting translation articles |
Dictation is a free online speech recognition software powered by Google Chrome. You can use Dictation to write emails and documents in the browser with your voice


"Speech Recognition in the Browser

With Dictation, you can use the magic of speech recognition to write emails, narrate essays and long documents in the browser without touching the keyboard.

To get started, just connect the microphone to your computer and click the Start Dictation button.

Dictation uses your browser's local Storage to save all the transcribed text automatically as you speak. That means you can close the browser and it will resume from where you left off.

The app internally uses the built-in speech recognition engine of Google Chrome to transform your voice into digital text.

Speak in your Native Language

You don't have to speak in English as Chrome's engine can recognize quite a few languages including Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Malay, Indonesian and more. Dictation will automatically determine your browser's default launguage and uses it for subsequent transcriptions.

Hindi and other Indian languages aren't supported at this time.

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.

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.

Marche correctement et permet de dialoguer en français
