This Tuesday, I have decided to make Tuesday's tool Tuesdays as much as possible.So this Tuesday I would like to talk about the tool I'm using to create this post, Dragon anywhere. So this Tuesday I would like to talk about the tool I'm using to create this post, Dragon Anywhere for iOS.
Dragon anywhere is an app on iPhone that allows me to dictate content anywhere I have my iPhone.
For example, this post is being dictated on the highway. That's right, I'm creating this post in the car while I travel.
Yes, this is an amazing world.
To give some more details as to how I am doing this, I should point out that I am using one other piece of technology besides my phone and the app though.
I am using the Rode Smartlav microphone as a way to dictate clearly in a somewhat hands-free environment.
The Smartlav is not a must but it can be very helpful with the keeping your voice clear with the sounds of traffic around you.
I should also note that the dictation isn't 100% accurate, but it is really close. You will have to go back and do some editing. However, doing some editing versus typing the content first can be much quicker.
I estimate this will save me probably at least an hour every single week.
I love it.
Once again, here are the links below for the items mentioned that I use to dictate in my car.
Here's to tool Tuesday and to making your life better cheaper and or faster.
