Hi, I'm thinking of using a digital tape recorder (iPod?) to record stories I'm writing (much easier in the field than taking notes).

Can I e.g. feed that into iTunes(?) then use the on-board Speech function to turn it into words (i.e. save transcribing, and save buying 3rd party software)?

Comments?

TIA,
Grahame

Text to Speech != Speech to Text. You'll need to buy transcribing software.

An app called Voice Memos will record your words and transfer them to iTunes via the Playlist when syncing the iPhone.

To get those words down to text you will need a program like Dragon NaturallySpeaking (for PC) or MacSpeach Dictate for the Mac, which uses the Dragon engine - how that will go with Voice Memo I dunno - I would be very interested to hear (or see :^ ) the results
