At last! A real Dictation App!
I have tried many dictation apps. But this one surpasses all of them. In accuracy, user friendliness, and more importantly the record option. It allows you to manage your text on spot. The possibility to add new words in the vocabulary is a big plus. That being said, there is one bemol: I am having trouble to share Text and Audio together. Only the text went through with WhatsApp and the audio with Messages. What have I done wrong? Please help!
Does not appear as advertised
I went with the light on my iPad and noticed the text got cut off when reading a WaPo article as a test. It basically stopped transcribing a quarter of the way through. Also, upon replay, it sounded like the mic didn’t work properly. I decided to switch over to my iPhone and did the same test. The mic worked, but still had the same issue with transcription stopping (i.e., some limit). I then decided to upgrade to the pro thinking the limit would be gone. Nope. In short, the Speechy is not supposed to have transcription limits like other transcription apps, yet it does. And the iPad mic does not work properly. I DON’T ADVISE PURCHASING THIS APP UNLESS THE DEVELOPERS ADDRESS MY CONCERNS. If they do, I’ll provide an update.
Speechy Added to My Dock for Daily Use
Using Speechy is faster than typing, though one has to correct some words. I place it side by side with text that I am voice transcribing and copy and paste the results into Notability or Notebook. You do need to buy the full app to get continuous speech to text conversion, but I found it well worth it. Also one can text edit in Speechy. Finally, the app was recently updated to make the cursor prominent when editing.
For Deaf and Hard of Hearing
I like it, and it helps me get the messages voicemail, any video that didn't show close-captioned. I take my iPhone(Speechy) and hold over iPad(video) and watch my iPhone dictating message. It's worth the $4.99 to get unlimited and without advertising. So it won't interrupted the message. You can also lay it down and watch, during two, or more conversations. I put 4 stars because sometimes (and hopefully seldom) it get interference, from noisy environment or the app itself. 👍🏻
A Good app that needs wired headphones.
This is a very good app. It has its bugs. But they are minor. It consumes a lot of battery power, and it uses a lot of cpu resources. But none of these things interfere with the phone at all. You will have a much more enjoyable experience if you use wired headphones. The app is near 85-90 percent accurate when your plugged in. With bluetooth, it’s about 60 percent effective. Overall, very happy. Would buy again. Developers, please improve Bluetooth delays if you can.
the best I’ve found for free
Been using this to get my thoughts down quickly while I write my novel, and it works, more or less. No, it’s not perfect, but it gets the gist of what you’re saying and recognizes new vocabulary. It’s great for how I use it, but I wouldn’t expect it to get everything down perfectly or use any punctuation without your explicit command to do so. You can’t beat the free price tag though, and I definitely recommend if you don’t mind editing!
Update reduced functionality to make you buy pro
The description says that it has unlimited recognition time. That used to be true until a few days ago, when they issued an update that reduced recognition time to 1 minute with a pop up that asks you to pay $7 for the pro version if you want unlimited recognition time like you used to have. Don’t know how much more underhanded you can get. Having a free app and then purposefully reducing its functionality after people have downloaded it.
Not Enough Time
I’m looking for an app that will simply record my thoughts on free flow so I can take and edit them into something better later. I’m very frustrated that there is a time limit on recording, unless one upgrades to the 4.99 plan. I’m using this app to help me get through my blogging slump. I’m not a professional, I’m a broke college student. I would be far less disappointed in the app if they had simply been upfront instead of allowing me to record for as long as I wanted for a 24 hour period. Very frustrated.
Speechy is great for elderly parents
Speechy has been a wonderful tool for communication with hard-of-hearing parents. Pro-Tip: don’t hand them the phone/iPad to read messages - it really slows down conversation. Just record messages & turn the device for them to read.
A few years ago, I wrote a few short stories with pencil. I got this app to dictate them rather that physically type them out. I have a couple of unusual names and I tried to spell them out. The first 2 letters of one were Ju (it was an expanded version of Julia). The app typed it out as Jay you. On top of this, once I stopped the dictation to make the edit, I couldn’t pick up where I left off. Good UI, but the software needs work.
Disabled writer loves this app!
I’ve used every voice recognition engine available to Macs for over 10 years and this app is as good as one I spent $500 on last year😫!! Wish I had known how amazing it was back then!!
I love this program!
I need to make lists, big lists. I can talk faster than type and the creative flow is better. From there I load the words to Word or Sheets or a database and it helps me get things done!
I dictate into Speechy on my iPhone when I’m on the go and then email the message to myself. At my computer, I can cut and paste the text into a document underway in Pages.
Speech recognition good but other issues
First and foremost the speech recognition is good. It’s as good as apples Siri which is saying a lot but there seems to be no way to add to text. As a writer, I need software that doesn’t simply record a completed speech that’s already been written. I need to record a thought or sentence at a time - pause - then add to that. (As I’m doing now, writing this review).
All of a sudden, the “free” version gives you a total of 1 minute (60 seconds) to try it out, then pops up a message saying you have to buy the pro version if you want even another second. The description lies, and this used to have a useable free version without some of the perks of pro. It’s called some nasty things, but this is basically known as underhanded.
