Amazing for someone with disabilities

Been struggling for years having software that would work one moment than the next moment it went on the Apple environment. There's a first product that I've can use knowing it'll be working when I open the app again. The software helps people that can't write a read in halfs to use their voice to right now they can capture items in the sea. Thank you guys for amazing job

Great for taking notes

Found this through tiktok and it works very well. I always have to take notes on powerpoint slides and if i copy and paste it normally i have to adjust the font, size and color. This app definetly saves time. Only thing is it copies bullet points as a paragraph so you have to change it but definitely a good app.

Works surprisingly well

Found this from tikok, didn't cost me anything, its my new favorite tool. I dont even need the pro version to use it and it hasnt dont anything damaging to my computer yet. Even can copy text from an image so citing text from a book is infinatly easier, highly recommend.
