App of the Week – Dragon Dictation

Dragon Dictation is a very easy to use free app for iPhones and iPads that uses voice recognition and allows you to turn what you speak into text. To download this application click here. This application is also available for desktop users, but it will cost you from $79.99- $179.99 bucks to get it. It is a great tool to save ideas about research projects, or just to write an email or tweet without having to actually type. This application is often used by professors in the medical humanities as well as by doctors when “writing” patient reports. However, it could be used for essay writing activities. For a quick demo of this app watch the video below. For more details on how to use this app click HERE. If you have used this app in your classroom please let us know by commenting on this post! We would love to learn about your personal experiences and we would love to share them with other Texas Wesleyan folks!
