Google Chrome’s online voice recognition


Person speaking

Voice recognition can be an incredibly useful tool.  It is now built into desktop operating systems and tablet devices.   It can alleviate handwriting difficulties, such as slow handwriting speed and illegibility, and it can also help people with dyslexia who may know exactly what they want to say, but putting it down on paper can be a real barrier.

This is worth having a look.  Dictation is a free online speech recognition software powered by Google Chrome. You can use Dictation to write emails and documents in the browser.  The recognition accuracy is very good and there is no training involved.

You don’t have to speak in English as Chrome’s engine can recognize quite a few languages.  Dictation will automatically determine your browser’s default language and uses it for subsequent transcriptions.
