Voice Dictation Through Your Android Device

The use of voice dictation on the Android devices has not gotten it's props,  due to the popularity of Seri (the dictation service on the iPhone) .  Android has really made huge strides with their voice recognition software and there are some things that you can do with it to make you more productive:

  • Use it to update word documents on the go.  This is a great way to start a report without typing.
  • Call local businesses by just saying "Call" and the business name.  It uses Google maps to find the business and calls them.
  • Say "note to self" and say a message.  It will send an email to your Gmail address with the audio.  This makes a great instant reminder.
