My use of voice to text recognition software goes in spurts. I don't use it routinely just because I am very seldom in a quiet enough area to make a good environment for the voice to text recognition software work well.
On my Windows 7 machine I use the built in Windows 7 software for speech recognition. It does pretty well, but I can't help but think that Dragon Naturally Speaking would do a much better job at this. I sometimes use the Dragon app on my iPhone to create like texts that I send out. But other than that, I don't use any of the boys search programs that are out there for my phone.
I have written a lot of blog posts using the voice to text technology on my iPad, and more recently on my new Nexus 7. On the iPad am using the Dragon app to create a note that I eventually will paste into another application to post up to my blog. The Nexus 7 has a very similar voice to text recognition application that you can use inside multiple applications on the device. This makes it a little more usable then the dragon app.
New wants is the software manufacturer of the Dragon series of software packages, and they are in constant development of their software to place it on as many devices that they can. We're starting to see it on some smart TV use and even in cars. They are hoping to have their software power in every application that you use.
They're placing a new software development kit so all iOS and Android app developers can use the same voice recognition technology in any app. This might be exciting for some of us that there is a scarier side to this coming to fruition. They are also hoping to combine actual voice ID’ing to financial applications to access banking and payment functions. Think about one click purchasing at Amazon being processed totally by voice control.
What is frightening is the possible loss of control as someone overhearing, recording your voice, or some other IP capture system to be able to take advantage of this voice function on devices and within applications that could hurt you financially. The question is do you want to open this Pandora's Box or not? Think about it.
