How can you translate voice to text?
There are both human transcribers that offer this as a service as well as a variety of software products that can do this for you on the spot (or transcribe voice to text from a previously made recording).
Software that translate voice to text
There is one leading talk to write software as well as a couple of smartphone apps designed to translate voice to text. While the basic algorithm remains the same, different kinds of software emphasize different benefits. In fact, most apps will help you control your phone by voice: text as well as call others, navigate with your GPS, surf the web and open as well as close various other apps.
Surprisingly, if you need to translate voice to text in large quantities for your work, you don’t have a lot of options to choose from. The leading software is Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5 that studies your voice patterns to create your own user profile. This will allow you to speak in your regular voice, without carefully enunciating every single word you wish the software to type for you.
Who might benefit from voice to text translation?
