Transcribe - Speech to text allows to dictate, record, translate and transcribe text instead of typing. It uses latest speech to text voice recognition technology and its main purpose is speech to text and translation for text messaging. Never type any text, just dictate and translate using your speech! Nearly every app that can send text messages can be configured to operate with 'Transcribe - Speech to text'. Dictate uses the builtin speech to text recognition engine.

Transcribe - Speech to text features:

► Over 40 Transcribe Languages
Transcribe - Speech to text supports more than 40 languages. Dictate offers 3 text zones - indicated by language flags - for which you can configure a different language in the settings. Thus you can switch between different language projects with a singe click.

► Over 40 Translation Languages
Translation is as easy as pushing the translation button. You can specify the translation target language in the app settings. Then you push the translate button to get it translated.

► Audio Recording
Both, your audio recordings and your text files can be accessed via the Apple 'Files' app.

► Transcription of Recorded Audio Files
Using the audio file transcription you can transcribe recorded audio files - containing speech - into text at a single click. All major audio file formats are supported.

► iCloud Synchronization
Having enabled iCloud, your text is automatically synchronized across all your devices running Dictate, e.g. iPhone, iPad, macOS and Apple Watch.

► Support for Impaired People
Dictate now supports the system font size setting and provides configurable button sizes for visual impaired users. Also VoiceOver is carefully configured.

Can’t get calls to dictate

I just downloaded this to help me with client call notes dictation and it won’t record/dictate when I’m on a call. Even when I have the call on “speaker” it doesn’t work. It’s useless for me.

New update horrible

After the most recent update the voice recording keeps stoping by itself when I think it’s still recording causing an issue. Also first words of sentences are no longer being capitalized.

Theis app consistently misses the words I am saying. I am constantly having to type in the corret word. Very tiresome. I stopped using it in the first month.

Fast and Accurate

Does everything well. I can speak at my natural speed. It operates in way that easy to use.

It's ok, but often gets words wrong and creates odd phrases as it tries to make sense.

It doesen't listen well. Instead fills in more typical words. It assumes you're not very literate. And so often autofills and guesses wrong words. I enunciate very clearly. Although I spell badly. When ever I speal a word I need spelled into Google, I always heas the word correctly. But this app doesn't.

It is difficult to dictate and it type it properly. I honestly could’ve just use my Siri.

So far, it's been a good alternative

I was a dedicated Dragon user until they gave up on the iOS system. For the price, I've found Dictate to be the best all around dictation software for iOS so far. One still has to use care and proofread what you wrote, especially if it's an important document. But that's been true of all the dictation software I've ever used. I wish there were a more overt way to easily train Dictate to improve. If there is, then I've not discovered it. That would be the big improvement I woudl want.
