How to Use Your Voice to Type Text on Android and iPhone

Typing is one of the most tedious activities, and you will undoubtedly agree. We're not talking about a few lines here, but rather a substantial amount of text. You may need to type long text on your phone in a variety of situations, such as when contacting someone, sending an email, or producing a document.

Technology advancements have made our lives much easier, and this is no exception. It is now feasible to convert your voice into text using speech-to-text recognition technologies. This eliminates the need to type lengthy messages. Simply speak whatever you'd like to type, and the gadget will transform it into text in real time.

For both iPhone and Android, there are a variety of speech-to-text transcription apps. In fact, it comes pre-installed on every device's keyboard. This article explains how to type text with your voice using these tools. Aside from that, deaf or hard of hearing persons can use voice recognition software to listen to what others are saying around them.

Android phone

Open the app you'd like to use to type by voice. You can use Google Keep or any other Notes software on your phone to keep track of the trail.

To open the keyboard, click anywhere in the text field.

On the keyboard, press the microphone (or recorder) icon. As illustrated in the illustration below, this icon is located on the toolbar at the top of the keyboard. It is, however, available on several other Android smartphones.

Simply begin speaking whatever you want to enter in the text box. You can wait as long as you wish because your voice recording is on hold.

To add punctuation, you can use a variety of voice dictation commands. For instance, to insert a comma (,) into your text, simply say comma wherever you want it to appear. You can also use a full stop (. ), a question mark (? ), an exclamation mark (! ), and so on. Use the enter, new line, and new paragraph commands to adjust line spacing.

As soon as you begin speaking, your voice will be transformed into text. To pause/stop, press the microphone symbol after you've finished. Before submitting or saving the text, double-check it for any problems.

iPhone and iPad

iOS, like Android, has a speech-to-text recognition function built into its keyboard. The methods are nearly identical for iPhone and iPad as they are for Android. To begin, open any app that allows you to input text using your voice.

Then, by clicking on the text area, you may access the keyboard. On the keyboard, there is a microphone icon (left to the space bar). Once you've clicked it, you're ready to talk. Unlike Android, Siri does not instantaneously convert your speech to text; instead, you must first speak your message completely.

When you're done, press the Done (or keyboard) button. After the voice recognition tool has analysed your voice, it will be transformed into text. You can also use voice dictation commands to add punctuation marks, symbols, emojis, and line breaks to your text. Employ commands like happy emoji, sad emoji, and so on to use emoticons.
