It’s time to dispense with typing and note-taking – get your hands on one of the best dictation apps for your smartphone and tablet
- Dragon Dictation
Available on both iOS and Android platforms, Dragon’s service uses its ‘NaturallySpeaking’ software to turn speech into text at a rate that’s up to five times faster than regular typing. Big claims perhaps, but for those who like to think out loud, this may very well be the ideal app for you: write emails, send tweets and post Facebook statuses all by simply speaking into your smartphone. Supporting a range of languages and equipped with an editing feature for you to tidy up those slurs in your speech, it’s quite the powerhouse of the dictation app game.
