This is a follow-up to my earlier article, Do Not Install Dictation Software on Your Windows or Macintosh Computer! that describes the new cloud-based Dragon Anywhere voice dictation software for or iPhone and iPad and Android. Dragon Anywhere costs $15 a month or $150 a year.
Google has announced ANOTHER REASON to not install dictation software on your computer. The new reason is also cheaper. Much cheaper: FREE. In my early testing, I found that Google’s offering works well. Google’s competitive offering works in Google Docs on any Windows, Macintosh, Chromebook, Android, iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch computer with a Chrome browser. Best of all, the new Google software is available FREE of charge and probably is already available in your computer today. Voice typing is available in 40 different languages so it should help with your French homework or for writing to your relatives in Greece.
