Dictation.io online app accurately transcribes your speech to text in real time via Google Chrome web browser. You can add paragraphs, punctuation marks, and even smileys using voice commands.
Simply open dictation.io website in Google Chrome and choose your native language from the drop-down. The first time you use dictation.io, you would need to allow permissions to the website to access your microphone.
App supports speech to text as well so you can listen to the transcribed audio in any of the available voices. You can alter the speed and pitch of the playback with simple controls.
Speech recognition will be more accurate in a quiet environment and the built-in microphone of your computer should be good enough.
Dictation uses the HTML5 Web Speech API that is currently implemented only in Google Chrome on the desktop. For Text to Speech, it uses the SpeechSynthesis interface of the Web Speech API that is available in Chrome, Microsoft Edget and Firefox.
The rich-text editor is built with Quill while the voice command interface is made possible with Annyang. Dictation uses the Github API to publish dictated notes online as anonymous gists.
