Di­ca­tion IO


Windows 7 Help & Advice - - DISCOVER -

Don’t fancy typ­ing? Fancy speak­ing to your PC in­stead? Google Chrome in­cludes a com­plete speech recog­ni­tion en­gine, and you can make the most of it with dic­ta­tion.io, a sim­ple site that uses your PC’s built-in mi­cro­phone to turn your speech into words on a page. It re­ally is easy. Just jump to the site us­ing Chrome, click ‘start dic­ta­tion’, and speak nat­u­rally.

The dic­ta­tion.io site is built to recog­nise not just sin­gle words, but sen­tences as well, and you can add punc­tu­a­tion as you go. It’s not ab­so­lutely per­fect, of course, but the re­sult­ing out­put is easy to clean up once you’re done. Just click copy, and paste it into your favourite word pro­ces­sor. If you are a hunt-and-peck typ­ist, this will save tons of time; even if you do not fin­ish your prose in one go, you can come back to your dic­ta­tion at a later time as it’s saved in-browser.

Speak to type Save your typ­ing fin­gers with the bril­liant dic­ta­tion.io web­site.
