Dictate - Speech to text allows to dictate and translate text messages instead of typing. It uses speech to text voice recognition technology and it's main purpose is speech to text and translation for text messaging. Never type any text, just dictate and translate it using your speech! Using the clipboard technology, nearly every app that can send and receive text messages can be configured to operate with it. The speech to text recognition engine is the builtin one of iOS devices.

► Convenience of Dictate - Speech to text
In order to send text messages quickly there is a "Send"-button that allows to launch the target app, i.e. Twitter, Facebook, WhatsAapp, Flickr, Email or whatever else is capable of coping with text messages. If you for example select Email using the "Send"-button, the builtin email application is immediately launched and a new email is automatically created that contains the transcribed text from the voice to text recognition. All you need to do is to fill in the message receiver and send it. This works similar for all other social media apps.

► Translation from Dictate - Speech to text
Translation is as easy as pushing the translation button. You can specify the translation target language in the app settings. Then you push the translate button to get it translated. The translation can just as easily be sent like the original dictated text itself.

► Time saving of Dictate - Speech to text
The benefit in saving time of voice to text technology is tremendous. Compared to typing the savings in time of dictating it can be up to 80%. You also can dictate messages while being in the car, you just need to speak them. There is no more need to type on the display. (Typing on mobiles while driving is forbidden in many countries!)

► Free test period of Dictate - Speech to text

Review by Photography*buff

Most excellent when doing a lot of typing - When we began the spring 2020 quarantine, I needed to work from home (of which I feel fortunate). Unfortunately, the amount of time I spend at a keyboard has increased tremendously since my interactions with others changed from being face-to-face to writing email. This app has been invaluable, as I am now able to vocalize my ideas, proofread them, and then submit my emails and other documents. Up to this point, the app is reliable and pretty accurate. Well done!

Just downloaded this. - Mac Catalina 10.15.3 iMac 5K (2017) Just downloaded this program and as soon as I opened it it crashed. Said there was a bad instruction. Got any ideas how to get this to work? Thanks

Drops material. - The app constantly drops portions of my material. It starts fine, but as soon as you pause it it erases large portions of the material that you dictated.

Version 2.34
Review by tnv35

Used to be great. - After the most recent updates it got buggy. Too many options, they moved my controls around and relabeled things. The worst is now the app stops recording without warning and I lose paragraphs worth of dictation without knowing it stopped. Deleting and trying something different.
