I am in a state of some delight! 😁

I have just discovered and installed Speechlogger, a speech recognition web app which types from natural speech onto my phone screen.

 

I have high hopes that this will transform my conversations with a profoundly deaf friend and one or two other friends who have varying degrees of hearing loss. 

 

The indications so far are very encouraging! I can't wait to try it out next time I visit her. 😊

@isabel1066, it's available from Play Store for Android. I don't know if there's a version for iPhone. That would be from Apple store I suppose.

Not sure what you mean. I'm just using the app as a stand-alone speech transcriber to present speech as text for a profoundly deaf person.

I have Android phones and quite often use Google voice/Voice to Text for Internet searches or for taking notes in my fave free Android Notepad called,"Color note",

If you tap the mic icon on Google voice and say Call 443 you can access your voicemail without using the dialer Smiley Happy

A couple of years ago I was working in Germany and after work went for a beer with a colleague.He asked about something and I said I'll look it up on Google.So I used Google voice said the search words.With no hint of Irony he said,"What are you doing talking into your phone?"  LOL Smiley Very Happy

For a one-off £5.99 upgrade to premium you can download a language pack (or more than one) and use offline. You can also lose the ads and vary the font type and size. If it works in the way I want it to I'll probably do that. 😊
