Beginners guide for Speech to Text . Start dictating your notes now !

September 24th, 2017 No comments

Dear Friends, This is a special blog post. Usually I used to type in posts on a keyboard, but this time I am dictating it. Whenever you have very long content to be entered, for eg: your Thesis work, it is very cumbersome to type in hundreds of pages. Dictating the text can save a lot of time and effort.

The prerequisites are

  • Chrome browser installed, if you don’t have Google Chrome installed you can download it from here for free
  • A working microphone and
  • An active Internet connection

You can dictate your notes in English and can paste it into any of your favorite word processors like Microsoft Word, OpenOffice, LibreOffice etc.

Please visit and click on the microphone icon on top right.



This website offers the service for free. As with any online web service, please do not try dictating sensitive documents or records. Try it out and please use the comment box for your suggestions and feedback.
