99% there! Missing just one thing...

As a medical professional looking for dictation software, this does a very good job! It understands a vast majority of medical jargon and I think this will really help me with charting. The only thing that would make this app absolutely perfect is if there was a way you could utilize its dictation capabilities within other apps. For example, is there any way to make a floating mic icon that you could tap that would allow you to dictate into any text box? Or maybe make an installable keyboard with dictation capabilities? Otherwise the only workaround for that at the moment is you can easily copy and paste the dictated text into your software of choice. It works, but it just adds an unnecessary step and I would love it if we could dictate into other apps directly.

Wonderful application

I originally pre-ordered this app during the corona pandemic, as I speak to patients daily with a mask and face shield. Many of them can’t hear me with my mask on or read my facial gestures / lips. This app will help me connect with them and communicate the right message. It is also helpful for those who are dead or hard of hearing. The app has a clean interface, allows me to flip the message (such as if microphone is on bottom of phone but reader is in front of me), and adjust text size. Many transcription apps only have one font size that is hard to read on an iPhone. This app solved that problem! It also allows you to break up the text per sentence for clean reading. Very impressed!

My girlfriend is hard of hearing

This is a great app! Real time speech recognition is paramount for people who are in a relationship with someone who is hearing impaired.

My girlfriend is hard of hearing, and the only time I can be sure she hears everything is if it’s read. I get frustrated sometimes when I have something important to say, but she doesn’t hear me. And instead of asking me to repeat myself, because she’s so nice, she agrees and nods. That works most of the time but I know she’s just being nice when I ask a question and she nods in agreement. I sometimes act like I didn’t ask a question, as to not make her aware that I know.
