How To Write Articles Faster Than Ever With Google Voice

by sephora 16 replies
Hey guys. Ok I just saw this on a short video with one of
my friends Russell Brunson and I'd thought I would say it
will ya'll.

1) Get a Google Voice Number. Last week they made it so everyone
can pretty much get an account.

2) Call into the account and leave a message. This message will go
to your email or be texted to you. That's the cool thing about Google
Voice is that it transcribes your messages. The message is the content
of your article.

3) If you outsource this, you can then send it to your article writer
and they can transcribe it for you and spice it up a bit.

Russell said this has sped up the process of article writing by 10x's.

Hope that helps!

    The Google Voice transcript is OK, not great, not horrible, just OK. I also get the occassional garbled transcript that is nothing like the voice message. So, I think this is a good solution but will not cover every need you have.

    You would definitely need some help from an editor/writer. I tend to produce rambling, sloppy content when I dictate.

    If you have windows 7 or vista you can just use Microsoft's Speech Recognition that comes with windows. I've used it to write articles in notepad. Super easy.

    Ha ha ha ha ha, sorry I just had to laugh.

    Have you actually checked the transcriptions you get from Google Voice? I'm sorry but this is NOT a good idea.

    Here is an actual transcription from a Google Voice message. Feel free to laugh.

    "Hey Mister this is Kerry I missing. Whatever urinate on page 42. Gimme a call back as soon as possible. Thanks. Bye."

    Really, you want to use Google Voice to transcribe articles? Sorry, it doesn't make sense to go ahead and leave a long voice message to your Google Voice account to get something like this back. And this is not a joke. That was an actual Google Voice transcription. And I've seen even worse.

    Like others are saying, there are much better ways to do this. Dragon Naturally Speaking seems to be popular. Windows Vista and Windows 7 both actually have voice to text software built right in to Windows. I haven't actually used it so don't know how good they are, but you can probably train them a bit, too.

    So, ya.

    Nice thought, but in the end, doesn't make much sense to be leaving long voice messages to transcribe an article and get nonsense in return.

      When normal people call me, they suck.

      When radio announcers and voiceover professionals call me, they're spot on.

      The problem is not with Google Voice. It's with the people leaving the messages. They don't speak clearly.

        Ha ha, yes, those damned unprofessionals!

        Seriously, though, I think it's much easier just to get software on your computer, like the speech recognition software in Windows that's free, or something a bit better like Dragon Naturally Speaking, that is intended for this very purpose.

        Nice idea, but not really the best option to transcribe articles. There's software for this already, and some of it is free, just like Google Voice. Also, when you can just speak in to a microphone right on your computer and see the text as you're speaking it, I don't see the point of leaving myself a phone message.

          You can do it anywhere.

          You're in the car. You have an idea. Click a couple buttons, and in less than a minute you're sending yourself an article through your Bluetooth headset. Got a traffic jam? Going to be an hour late getting home? Fire out some content.

          There are, indeed, better solutions. But the only real problem I have with GV transcriptions is that I don't know WTF this person actually said. When I left the message myself, it's really easy to proofread real quick and edit, because I remember what I said.

          But I do get this sort of thing and wonder what drugs they were on.

More later, that I should be You know the drill sad to tell you, it's just Yes, in a little details about you know me finally meeting Keith for the receipt for, hey. Yes.

            Oh...wait a minute..

            You mean I could...

            even do a small interview with someone using my cell phone?

            Like maybe I was at the garage waiting on my car to get fixed and I would start a conversation with one of the standby machanics about how to keep my winshield wipper line clear from seasonal mold and meldew. I could record that on my cell phone and send it to myself?

            Actually, that would be cooler than DNS. First, that would make it a mobile solution. Second, you don't have to train it to identify different voices. Third, which should have been first, it is Free.

            ok...i think i'm sold.

    I use google voice, and have my voicemails sent to my cell phone.

    It's good enough. Yes, you'll have to do a little clean up work because of some bad translations... but it's a hell of a lot quicker than pounding out an article by hand.

    My only question is if there is a time limit? I've had voicemails that didn't get transcribed and I assumed it was because they were too long. I could be wrong, but I don't know. Even if that is true, you can still write articles with it... just not whole ebooks.
