Just when I thought Evernote couldn't get any cooler, I remembered a feature that I've been wanting to try out for some time.
Enter The Dragon.
For awhile I used to use a software from Nuance called Dragon naturally speaking.
The software translates spoken word into text. An amazing little tool that can really enhance your productivity. But I've always struggled to find the right time and place to use it because you often need to be in a room so quiet that you can hear a pin drop. Plus there's always that schlep of having to train your dragon first, so that it can pick up on your pronunciation and analyse your sentence structure. The learning curve is kind of steep and honestly a little time consuming.
But now with using dictation in Evernote I found the perfect tool that integrates both worlds. Dragon and Evernote. The convenience of having my phone in my pocket, and taking notes verbally while on the go is wonderfully freeing.
In fact I'm writing this blog post using the dictation software and the accuracy is pretty amazing.
This really opens up a world of possibilities.
If you don't already use Evernote this is a good reason to start.
