Is anyone aware of a Droid app that allows you to convert speech to text for use in data entry?
Talk to me Keyboard works great. You can convert speech to text in both txt messages and gmail. Works great with hanscent texting.
It's more accurate if you speak succinctly in a almost robotic voice. Doesn't take any time to figure it out.
This takes the phone to the next level. Way beyond voice searching google, or searching contacts.
if anybody finds a way to play media by voice, lmk.
I'll second the Talk to me Keyboard app - been using it a while and it works very well. If words are really uncommon, it has issues, but generally it works well. Does better with longer words than very short words (opposite of typing!).
I just speak naturally - using inflection, etc. Check out the settings for customizing - new version has a few options that may suit you better.
For texting while driving, Handcent's built in speech-to-text works fine for me. Doesn't always spell names correctly, but phonetically they're fine.
I say "Stacy", it writes "Stacey".
How about a speech to text app that will detect if you are overly angry or stressed or even drunk and then delay any texts or emails until you have cooled off or sobered up and then verify if you still want to send those messages to your boss or ex?
