Have you ever wanted to Voice Type? And didn’t know how to go about it. Well thanks for Tech. Everything is now easier than you might have ever thought. In fact you can voice type right now if you have your device and internet connection.
So What’s Voice Typing?
What Voice Type Means:
It simply means the act of speaking to something. That thing listens and writes what you have spoken. I believe everyone pretty understands this definition. For example, this post was voice typed.
So without further ado, let’s delve into the main banger!. These post, teaches you how your device can type for you by using your voice instead of your hands.
This is particularly useful when you are lazy and don’t want to type. Or Just want to talk while the device writes. Or if you have had injuries in your hands or anything else that could make you not want to type.
For example, an author in a hospital bed can still write on some ideas that came up is mind by simply speaking without having to move an inch. While, his/her device does the writing.
Overall, a pretty cool technology everyone should be using. The world is getting more advanced and things should be way more simpler. Ok!.
