Speech to text apps can be frustrating at times as they don’t always work out the way you want them to. Speechnotes is one of the better ones available as its recognition accuracy is solid. The app does a good job of punctuating text automatically. Its capitalization and punctuation features are actually patent pending, an indication of how good they are.
The interface is intuitive. Start by choosing your language and make sure Google Voice is enabled in the Input and Language settings. There are also offline language packs you can download so you can use the app offline.
Once the app is installed, launch it and tap the microphone button. Start talking and the app does the rest. Speak slowly and clearly at first. Just like with any text to speech app, you need to judge how quickly you can talk to get accurate results. It might take a bit of practice, but it’s going to be worth it.
Tap the pause button once you’re done. There are also editing buttons at the bottom of the screen which you can use to clean up the notes. You can also use voice commands to format the text. These features include adding a new line, a new paragraph, hyphen, question mark, comma, etc.
Speechnotes automatically saves your notes, and it loads the last one you made. However you can modify this by tapping the settings at the top left. The default setting works fine for most though, and the accuracy level is pretty good.
