UR Turn: Have You Used Dictation Software to Write?

Authors who use dictation claim a much higher writing speed

I’ve recently been experimenting with using dictation to write and bought a USB headset to reduce dictation errors. So far I’m excited about the process and anxious to get better at it. To accomplish this, I’ve bought Dragon speech recognition software and will begin using it.

What are your thoughts about dictation?

Have you considered it? Did you try it and give up?

If you do dictation, what software and hardware do you use? What are the benefits? What advice can you offer?

If you are having dictation related work, the best way is to use dictation app like – Dictation Pro. This app configures your microphone properly before dictation. Best app I have ever used to create my docs with my voice.
