Reader Jeremy emailed me in details about MyCaption — a service offering the ability to dictate email messages via voice.
All you have to do is (for example) click on the “Reply (MyCaption)” menu link and speak. When you’re finished, the MyCaption service will insert the dictated text into your typing window.
I think this is a great concept — my problem is that voice-to-text is ridiculously rubbish with my accent (which is a mix between Scottish and Londonish).
Provided you’ve got an accept that works well with these types of services, you could be on to a winner. I like the idea of being able to dictate my email messages.
Much like SpinVox, this service is available for $9.95/month by PayPal — and that includes 20 standard message dictations. (Standard = 1 minute length).
Stump up $24.95 and you can have unlimited standard messages and up to 30 3 minute messages per month. Or pay as you go — $10 gets you 20 standard messages to use when you wish.
