Best Speech to Text Apps For Android

Speech-To-Text-To-Phone-to-Laptop

 

Hello, today I am going to talk about speech to text applications.

 

 

I recently read a post at Wealthy Affiliate where a member was using a

 

phone to write content for a blog using a speech to text app.

 

 

This person mentioned that once gotten used to, they were able to get more

 

content out.

 

 

So I thought I would give it a try.

 

 

I am at my desk typing on the ole laptop and am getting ready to download

 

some of the speech to text apps to try and see if I can find one that may be

 

more responsive than the rest.

 

 

It would be a different experience to go out about daily tasks and at the

 

same time write/speak content for my blog.

 

 

There are some apps that may also have a desktop version available for this

 

task and I will be looking at this to see if there would be any advantage or

 

more options making things any easier combining them both.

 

 

I have decided to pick the top 4 Android apps and use them during this post

 

so that if anyone else wants to give it a go they will available info to start

 

from.

 

 

I am using there reviews and star rating as a guide to pick the top four.

Voice Notes has many features and when you click on the app the first page

 

that will come up will be a voice-notes-menupage with a top menu

 

that consists of NOTES, REMINDERS, and

 

CATEGORIES which include all of your transcribed

 

notes and a + icon to add new ones.

 

 

This app has a feature that you would

 

voice to text in the reminder mode

 

and it would sync to your Google Calendar Account.

 

 

That would be handy in remembering special dates along with notes or gift

 

ideas.

 

 

Clicking on the menu icon will bring you to the main menu including

 

Settings that has a large submenu.

Voice Notebook has a fairly easy interface and is not hard to learn once you

 

try it.

 

 

You can take voice voice-notebook-menunotes and save them on your

 

phone or send them to cloud services.

 

 

You have at your fingertips custom punctuation,

 

word replacement, capitalization, undo commands,

 

and other useful tools.

 

 

This app uses Google speech recognition so Google app must be installed.

 

 

This is a simple speech to text app with the first page being your speech to

 

text transcriber and when you click on the menu icon you are brought to

 

the screen you see here:

 

 

 

Gboard

First, you need to go through all the menu choices and set up the app with

 

all of your preferences.

 

ThisGboard-menu app will replace the default keyboard with a

 

keyboard using your options of language and with

 

any of the themes that are available in the Themes

 

tab.

 

 

So anywhere you would type in any text

 

you would have the option for speech

 

to text by clicking on the microphone icon

 

in the upper right in your keyboard or Gboard.

 

 

The keyboard options that are available to you in the settings’ tab are

 

Qwerty, Handwriting, Qwertz, Azerty, Dvorak, Colemak, and PC.

 

 

To the right is a screenshot of the settings’ menu where you pick your

 

preferences in each submenu.

Speech notes Settings page was pretty much like the rest of the other apps

 

with the exception that this app also has a desktop version.

 

They also have a google extension that you can download and it has one

 

feature that was pretty cool and it was that you can have your text read

 

to you.

 

So say you were typing a blog and wanted to know how it sounds you could

 

have it read back to you.

 

 

Not sure if the voice was a digital one or not, but the web page says it is a

 

natural sounding voice.

 

I clicked on the link that said TRY IT FOR FREE but was taken to a 9.95 check

 

out.

 

 

Go figure.

 

 

Take Away


So there you have it.

 

 

I am still fooling around with them but am leaning a bit towards the

 

Gboard as the best speech to text app for my android.

 

 

The convenience factor in that no matter what you are doing when it comes

 

to text you would have that speech to text option already there without

 

having to manage an app first.

 

 

I believe speech response may have been a bit better as well, although I

 

have noticed that the speech to text recognition can change from one

 

minute to the next in about all the apps.

 

 

I am sure it is probably a matter of our voice not being constant all of the

 

time.

 

 

One more thing, I found a really handy screenshot app for your android

 

that when downloaded and turned on, will put a small button on every

 

page that you are on and if you want a screenshot just click the tiny floating

 

button.

 

 

It will move around if it gets in your way of doing anything.

 

 

You also have the ability to record Utube videos on any website and save

 

them for uploading.

 

 

If that wasn’t enough there is also a browser inside the app where you can

 

screenshot any web page or google results right inside the app then upload

 

to wherever you want.

 

 

The screenshots are stored in the app where you have a bunch of choices as

 

to where you want to upload them to…very handy.

 

 

The name of the screenshot app is Screenshot Touch. You want to have the

 

right tools in the right place to better achieve your online and offline

 

chores.

 

 

I am always looking for new and better ways to accomplish online tasks and

 

striving to make things easier to run my online business

 

 

If you have found a tool or service that you just can’t do without then share

 

it here and I will give it a go!

 

 

Try out any of the speech to text applications and please leave me any

 

comments about any of the services that you have tried whether it is one of

 

the ones that I have reviewed or not.

 

 

Love to hear from you.

 

 

All The Best
