25 mayo, 2021

If you do not have much agility when writing from the screen of your mobile it is not necessary to resort to voice notes to communicate with your contacts, you can always use the voice dictation that integrates most Android devices.

The Google voice dictation allows us that, write with our voice so we don’t have to type anything. We just have to talk so our voice becomes text.

Write with your voice

The google voice dictation it is usually built into most keyboards. You have to find the microphone icon to start write with your voice. When you press on the microphone, everything we say will automatically appear written.

In this way we can write in any applicationEither to send a message on WhatsApp, save a note or create a text document. With voice dictation you will no longer have to abuse voice memos.

Add score

The voice dictation allows us add punctuation marks to the text by saying the following words:

  • Point
  • Eat
  • Exclamation
  • Question
  • New line
  • New paragraph

Example: to write “hello! how are you? me at home, having tea.” you have to dictate “hello exclamation how are you interrogation at home eat having a tea point.” The start of an exclamation or question cannot be dictated.

If we are writing a very long text or a document with the commands New line we will make an intro and with New paragraph a double intro.

Offline speech recognition

Voice dictation comes integrated into the Google app, and from there, on Settings> Speech> Offline speech recognition we can download our language to be able to use voice dictation without data.

Block offensive words

There too, from Settings> Voice we can activate the option block offensive words If we do not want him to write a bad word by mistake or we can deactivate it if we want the dictation to write the insults.

Of course, voice dictation is not one hundred percent reliable so we have to be very attentive to what we are writing with the voice so that exactly the text we want is sent.
