Are you a business owner who is always on the go? Maybe you are a transcriptionists who is looking for new ways to capture notes? Whatever your circumstances, you would benefit from digging a little deeper into the uses of speech recognition and mobiles. A digital voice recorder that recognizes speech can really help you in your efforts to turn a voice recorded file into text form. This is a solution that can save you time and hassle, particularly if you have a busy schedule and lack the time to manually turn a recording into a readable piece of text.

As a business owner or transcriptionists, you should think about going down the route of speech recognition with mobile transcription services. This option is suitable for people who are regularly traveling and dealing with daily duties. Your time could be devoted into other areas of your business when you explore this option and because there are so many applications available to download on smartphone devices, there’s no reason not to start testing them out.

Here are some of the top mobile applications you could introduce into your transcription routine:

  • QuickVoice – This application is designed for the iPhone and for the one-off fee of $0.99, it is great value for money. The best thing about QuickVoice is that if you get disrupted or need to take a second before the speech continues, you can use the ‘pause’ button.
  • Voxie Pro Recorder – Also an iPhone application, the Voxie Pro Recorder is paid recording software that can be downloaded with ease. After making a recoding you can save it, email it to someone else or even send it to a phone contact.
  • Dragon Dictation – This speech recognition mobile application has received rave reviews and has been featured in The New York Times. It is free at the moment, so download it quick to avoid missing out! With Dragon Dictation you can record, save the text and transfer it to your clipboard or send it in an SMS.
  • MyCaption – If you are one of the millions of people who own a BlackBerry smartphone, opt for MyCaption, which is $1.99 and offers users the chance to record sound wherever they are in the world.
  • Google Voice – This is the most versatile option because it can be used on any phone. When you are mobile you can use Google Voice to easily transcribe voice messages. Although some of the features need tweaking to improve the accuracy of the speech recognition, Google say they are making positive changes every day.
  • Vlingo – It may not turn your voice messages into text, but Vlingo can help you to access the web and social networking sites through speech recognition.
