I sure wish there were talk to text on this site. I would visit it more.

dragon programme is very complicated. voice to text works very well on phones but limited when preparing documents and multiple emails. surely there is a gap in the market for a simple programme on android ?

If your phone is android or iPhone you should have native speech to text you may have to download from relative app store. Most sms tools are enable for voice messaging as well as WhatsApp which is available on Apple IOS, Microsoft and Android phones. WhataApp offers typing, cut and pace from clipboard, voice message and finally voice to text or call and video call. Hope this help. This was done by speech to text. Beware make sure you run spell and grammar check as we all have different nuances to our voice. Commercial product Dragon Speak is by far best with a corresponding price tag and a lot of preparation for for you voice training. If all else fails kids and grandkids can probably type your message on a in a tenth of the time.

Good luck and don't get your stress levels as there is always voice-mail or message services 😉 cheers Andy

I use Rivastigmine Transdermal Patches to help with my freezing for 2 years. I really don't see much improvement.
