Review: “This app’s voice-recognition technology listens, and then transcribes speech on to the phone’s touchscreen. How does it work? You need to record the speech first, and you can’t record for very long, but it is ideal for short notes, texts and emails. The app can recognise the context of some words, such as ‘where’ and ‘wear’, but its accuracy isn’t always spot on. You can always review the text, however, and edit it if necessary.”

Review: “I've used this app for two things. First, sometimes, a friend is saying a word, and I just can’t pick it up. So I ask them to say it into my phone, then I can read it. The other thing I use it for is to practice improving my speech. I’ll speak into it, then find the words that didn’t come out right, and practice until the phone can recognise what I’m saying correctly. I know the technology isn’t perfect yet, but, in all honesty, it’s actually pretty good, considering it’s working on a mobile device. And I do find that if I repeat a word, and try to say it clearly, it usually eventually places the right word on the screen.”
