I’m dictating this blog post using the Evernote dictate option. I’m using the Evernote app on the Google Nexus 7. (Note: this dictate functionality is included in the free Android version of the app, I’m not sure why I can’t get it on my iPad 2).
I know that text-to-speech has come along way since the days of having to spend hours (days) trying to configure an application to recognize your voice and that applications like Dragon Naturally Speaking provide extensive and robust text-to-speech functionality, but I hadn’t really been motivated to try it on a mobile device to write.
My experience dictating this blog post on Evernote has been pretty fair, I’d even venture to say good. It hasn’t caught every word, and I’ve had to go back and make corrections, but I do think it is just as fast or maybe even quicker write simple blog posts this way on a mobile device where the keyboard doesn’t lend itself to speedy data entry.
Once I’ve written my blog post in Evernote, I email it the custom email address I set up just for WordPress content. I’ve provided some links on how to do this below that I’ve found helpful. You can share Evernote content to WordPress directly from an Android if you have the WordPress app installed, but at this point in time, it seems to only post content as a hyperlink, not the full post.
