Thanks, @endorphin. I've installed the Live Transcribe app now. It's in development so may not be 100% just yet but early indications are pretty good.

I particularly like the high contrast white on black and the good font size. As my friends are elderly, sight is maybe not all that it used to be.

I look forward to trying it out with them!

Yes, @afahmed, Samsung uses the Android operating system and will run apps from Google Play Store.

Open the play store and search for Live Transcribe.


When you have installed the app, a small icon like a person with outstretched arms should appear at the bottom of your screen. Tapping that will open the app, instantly ready to use. You will need an Internet connection to use it.
