speech to text

Droid has speech to text. In any text box, you can hit the microphone button, speak into the phone and it will transcribe your words into text. I’ve found it to be mostly accurate. Only trouble is I feel silly using it when people are around.

Other day, my wife asked me to pick up bread on the way home the next day. If I don’t get a reminder, I’ll forget. So, I opened up the calendar app, hit the appropriate time and looked at the phone and said “bread”. I started laughing. Wife said What’s so funny? I said Text to speech error. She asked what it spelled out and I told her “boobs”. I said it must read minds instead.

    Shhh, that mind-reading app is still experimental. You probably weren’t supposed to get it.

    But I think you mean “speech to text.” (Though it is linux based, so a text to speech app shouldn’t be too difficult for someone to put together.)

    The speech to text is hit or miss. I usually have to talk very monotone and pronounce every syllable, I’ve gotten some doozies otherwise.
