App of the Week: Boost Productivity With Dragon Dictation

Write without your fingers with Dragon Dictation, an easy-to-use voice recognition application that allows you to easily create documents, send text or email messages, social media updates and so much more – all by voice.

It’s up to five (5) times faster than typing on the keyboard.

I’ve used the app to create a blog post and while useful, I did have to go back and perform a few edits. This is not a drawback since proof reading and edits are a part of the creative process. Speaking slowly and clearly will help Dragon Dictation better understand and convert what you’re saying to text, easing subsequent edits.

I’ve also used it to quickly send text messages and emails by speaking into my phone.
