Dragon Dictation: A Hilariously Awesome Dictation iPhone App


It is illegal to text while driving. Many people do it anyways. I, on the other hand, only text when I am at a complete stop. I just found out recently, though, that apparently that’s illegal too. So I turned to a dictation app (well, I’m still texting at red lights but trying to integrate it).

The app is called Dragon Dictation and it is amazing. It is VERY good and can recognize even fairly fast speech with accuracy. To truly test it out, I subjected it to Lose Yourself by Eminem. It didn’t stand up against rap . . .


Original verse

“tear this motha f*cking roof off like two dogs caged, I was playin’ in the beginning, the mood all changed, I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage, but I kept rhymin’ and stepped, writin’ the next cipher, best believe somebody’s payin’ the pied piper’”

“Translated” verse

“tennis mother f*cking roof off like two dogs cage I was playing in the beginning the mood I’ll changed have been chewed up and spit out Booda stage picket ravenous step Brenda best of the somebody’s panda Pied Piper”

Awesome. You’ll notice that it actually took some of his slang and corrected it.

But seriously, it’s a great app and it’s FREE. Get it here.

Play around with it and post anything amusing you do with it.
