Has anyone had success with voice to text writing instead of typing out your blog posts?

Do you do voice to text writing for blog posts?

Or do you have more success with just typing out your blog posts?

I believe speaking is faster than typing and one can get more done with it.

I like writing my own blog posts but typing is taking too long. I've explored google voice to text writing.

Thoughts?

  • Voice to text software isn't always the fastest way to create blog post. You may just save yourself time by typing instead.

    Text to speach software usually doesn't pronounce words correctly, and could cost you more time editing, than you may have expected.

      Yes, editing takes longer. Just trying to find out what warrior forum members do to maximize their time. Voice to text can take longer for some. Practicing.

    One of the best software investments I have ever made. Couldn't work without it.

      As long as it sounds good when it was written. I have done it in the past, but my posts required so much editing and rewrites that I stopped doing it. Just my experience though.

    Give it a try and see how it works for you.

    The secret is to edit carefully. I turn a lot of transcripts into posts for clients. It requires taking out a lot of words like "gonna" and the "okay?" at the end of sentences. Most of us add a lot of gibberish when we talk unless we're giving a speech that we've practiced. You want your post to sound natural but it doesn't need the..."ummm" and "hmmm" we tend to add as we talk.

    Also, as others have said, it won't recognize all words correctly so you'll need to be sure your meaning is clear.

    Only you can decide if it saves you time in the end.

      Within a few hours of training, I achieved a 99% accuracy rate. It's a high-end product. Not cheap, but like everything else in life and business, you get what you pay for.

      My Mac has built in dictation. Not as accurate, but it's free. I still prefer to pay for the best I can get.

    I've used Dragon quite a bit in the past when writing for hours a day - and the trick in my view is taking the time to properly 'train' the software rather than quickly make changes yourself.


    I have my own 'voice to text' system. I'm a touch typist (don't look at the keyboard)) and tested several times at over 100 wpm. Typing is easy for me and I can dictate an article or post and type it as final draft at the same time.


    Unfortunately - there is a side effect. Though I consider it 'dictating' my son says I 'mutter" when I'm writing online.

      That's not too big an issue. It's the muttering while you're fixing dinner that's the issue. :-)

    Any muttering done when I'm not on the computer is attributed to 'talking to the dog'. ...and I'm sticking to that story.

    Pre-computer - pre-keyboard - in high school. My Grandmother said "learn a skill that can support you - don't count on anyone else completely". Best advice ever.... I'd played music since age 5 so moving to a typewriter keyboard was not a big deal.

    In my school there were no letters on the keys - trust me, you LEARNED.

    The music made the typing easier - the typing and music made my hands strong and flexible for dealing - strange how things work out. Nothing I've learned in life has made me as much money as that one year high school course. weird, huh?

      I have very few regrets as it relates to life and business, but I can say that never learning how to type, or play a musical instrument, top my list.

    Yeah, with Dragon Naturally Speaking. But, you have to train the software a lot and you have to train yourself to say the commas and periods.

    In the end, I like it for the words I don't know, but I'm not sure how to write and like Stephen King would say; "Vomit pages" and then, I go and correct and punctuate them.

    I hope that helped.

    PS: I wrote that with Dragon. And I'm sure it took me twice the time then it would have typing.

      Possibly, but a poor example. The beauty and benefit is in dictating long-form streams of thought.

      First rule of using a tool. Knowing when the application fits the project. :-)

    I am better in writing than talking.

    As it allows me to organize my thoughts and even delete certain mistakes I made before publishing.

    If I speak, I cannot do amendments and have to apologize as the only way to my audience.

    It depends a lot on the topic you are writing/talking about, and how long your articles are.
    Let me give you an example of my own experience.
    I was working for someone who needed 1.5k articles about classical paintings and gambling, but more law-specific. (weird combination, I know).
    Just with google docs tool speech to text and grammarly (paid) I did the painting articles in about an hour, ready to deliver.

    However, there was no way to use the same technique for the gambling, as the terms are in many ways too specific and individual. It took simply too much time to get them sorted out, so typing was faster.
    cheers

  • I think voice to text typing to create blog posts can work IF you have a rough outline of what you want to see in your blog ahead of time.

    The tendency of some people, when they wing it or just talk extemporaneously, is that
    - they mumble
    - they have a lot of 'filler' words (like, you know, kinda, sorta)
    - they have a lot of unnecessary pauses
    - their ideas are disorganized
    - they go off track
    - the posts can be too long or too short.

    And if you have a rough outline before you dictate, it's also easier to edit,

      Only if you are using a crappy product that you have never taken the time to properly train.

    If your first language is English then you use Dragon Naturally Speaking and train it to your voice.

    Or you can simply do a YouTube video and embed it in your blog post. This does two things, it reduces the bounce rate on your blog and also helps the video to increase its ranking on YouTube.

      I haven't tried it on my Android phone. I tested it on Google docs. It takes practice. Just getting my feet wet with voice to text blogging.

      Jon Morrow from smartblogger does dictation to write blog posts. Not sure if he has an editor or not.

      Having an outline helps.

    I am currently working on writing a book and have become addicted to www.Otter.ai. They have an app for the iPhone that allows me to pace through the office and dictate to my phone. The voice is converted to text pretty much right away and is available shortly thereafter on the website. Making my life a heck of a lot easier. I guess it depends on the size of your blogs but with my typing skills, this has been a godsend!

    Blogging can be time-consuming especially for those people who have a lot of jobs to do. Anyway typing can really help you to type faster, but if you prefer to save time I use Dragon Dictate, I do transcribe and this really helps me a lot, it really works amazing. I suggest that if you use this application you still need to double check everything, this will surely help you to save time. You should have a good headset and a good mic as well. You can record everything or just talk while this apps type everything. I hope this one might help you.

      Again, for the 4th time - the more you train it, the better the accuracy. You're only going to get out of it, what you are willing to put into it - like most things in life.

      I'm getting a 99% accuracy rate. Who gets that, typing? Not, me. Not, ever.

      It's not a miracle solution, it's a tool. It can be a highly effective one, if you make it so. I do consider it a miracle solution for me, as my typing can never keep up with my thoughts.

      Cheers.

    Personally, voice to text only works for making short notes on the go, rather than creating entire blog posts. I'm a far more eloquent writer than I am speaker and I think this has to do with the amount of time we spend learning how to craft written material in our formal education. Think about it. You learn not just the parts of an essay or story and how to put it all together. You learn the little pieces that make it flow, the transitional phrases that carry your reader from the top to the bottom of the page.

    I don't know about you, but I was never taught to speak on one topic for this long, or at least not without notes or a PowerPoint to help keep me on track. In my daily conversation, I'm no dummy, but I tend to jump around quite a bit more and use more filler language (like um and ah) which would cause lots of problems for voice to text without considerable editing.

    Been there and tried voice to text about 10 times. I have been a freelance writer for more than a decade and I have never found voice to text to be faster. I type between 60 and 70 words per minute, so I am fast, but not super fast like some.

    The problem I run into is the editing. When I type, I am far more accurate than any program I have found for voice to text. I also don't use any editing program when I type, only notepad. I hate having my mistakes pointed out during the writing process. That's what editing is for.

    While I can write an article faster with voice to text, the editing process is about three or four times longer. When I type, I make fewer mistakes and I don't have to worry about a program deciding I said something I didn't mean to say. Sometimes, the mistakes can even be hard to spot.

    This is just my two cents, but I am not a fan of voice to text.

      I'm trying to improve in both areas. My typing isn't too bad but I feel like voice to text should be learned. I'm trying out both.

        I used to do quite a bit of online chatting when I was younger. I am pretty sure that's how I got faster at typing.

          We see a lot of this. You, too, can report SPAM. Use the little red triangle to the left of the post.

    Hey Ethan, I normally record a audio or complete a video. I then upload the file to Rev. Com. Another way is to open Google docs, add the voice to text app. Play your audio or video right near the speakers. Allow the app to type. Once it types of back and edit the document to flow for a reader. I hope this helps.

      I know some bloggers use rev.com. How long does it take to edit your content?

        Are you asking how long does it take for them to transcribe your content? If you had looked on their website, you would have discovered that files under 30 minutes are delivered in 12 hrs or less. I don't see where they offer any editing services.

    • I used to have Dragon that came pre-installed on a computer, and I agree that the editing was too much. The Google Docs one is actually surprisingly more accurate and that's free.

        If so, the training you applied was way too little. Don't blame the software for your lack of commitment to train the software. That's just bogus.

  • I actually type more quickly than speak. But, I do find that when I'm stuck on writing, if I use the voice option on Google Docs on my phone, I'm able to get a bunch of ideas out by speaking them that I may not have necessarily come up with trying to write. It's that whole speaking uses a different part of the brain or something like that :-P It's a great idea in any case.

    It isn't good as I expect. It takes time for proofreading. You know, if it's an audio, people can understand, but if you write all what you say, people read and not really understand.
