Does anyone have a free (or reasonably priced) dictation software rec?
My system has a pretty good built in mic so I dont need a hand piece and I have good diction. Basically just looking to hotkey one of my mouse accessory buttons to "RECORD" and say something like "Insert allergy macro" and have "Recommend patient start daily flonase and cetirizine" pop up on my cursor.
Description: TVing Original "Idol Dictation Contest" (directed by Lee Tae-kyung) is an idol version spin-off program of tvN's "Amazing Saturday"(also known as Doremi Market) that plays dictation games for market food across the country. (Translated using Papago)
Both host Boom and Haetnim will also appear on this show, presumably assuming the same roles as they did on Amazing Saturday. It will air every Friday on TVING Original starting on May 21st.
The cast looks amazing and I hope the show gets subbed somewhere!
Question as above. Also interested if anybody has any experience with microphones or other hardware that they like/dislike. Everything that I'm seeing online is pretty limited in terms of reviews for software, and the hardware reviews seem focused on professional use (i.e. streaming, professional voice work, etc).
I don’t have perfect pitch. Basically, my teacher will send me some eight-bar, two-voice melodies (along with the key) and I will try to write them out. Here are my two problems:
I usually think in solfege to figure out the notes, but in a minor key, it’s much harder to do because of the leading tone. Should I still think of the major tonic note as “do?” Any advice on how to think differently in a minor key?
in the middle registers especially (the octave below middle C,) when the LH has notes there, I honestly can’t hear the notes below the RH melody. On the recording, I will literally play Judy one LH RH note paring like ten times, trying to identify the bottom note, but often, even though I can hear that there is a bottom note that is different from the top, I can’t for the life of me determine what it is. I can’t find it in my head to sing it, and I can’t really hear the interval.
My teacher is also very stumped that I simply can’t hear the bottom notes clearly. She says she will have to ask her colleagues, but I’m hoping someone here has had the same struggles and can give me advice on how to adjust my focus or something like that?
I just purchased a brand new Apple TV 4K, I would like to use dictation to look up videos in Vietnamese but it seems that the dictation changes my Vietnamese to english like it does not understand it at all and tries to make sense of what I’m saying to what it sounds like in English. I tried to check the settings and no luck.
Hi! I've been in a WFH job for 8 years. I purchased Dragon years ago and upgraded a couple times. The next upgrade I would be able to purchase would be the Profession edition which I don't want to spend money on. Dragon seems to be the most popular but is still really temperamental. Sometimes it works with Excel, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it works with OneNote, sometimes it doesn't. I've "trained" tons of words and they don't get saved. Thus is a huge reason why I don't want the Professional edition. Does anyone else use dictation software, other than Dragon? There isn't much out there. Windows has a speech feature but its really limited and a but tedious. Thanks in advance.
Hi there. I'm Shiori from Tokyo.
I'm studying English now and want to help the other people who also struggle with studying Japanese so often have visited this subreddit and commented.
Today I tried Wanikani for the first time, and I'm so surprised. I didn't know any radical names at all, so I couldn't answer even the first quiz lol. Does it have some effects to memorize the radical name?
I'm getting off track, I want to share some great resources of the dictation and the listening.
I'm using this of English ver and it is very tough to listen to each word separately and correctly. But you can improve your listening skill powerfully.
I heard Japanese ver a little, the sound is very natural and easy to listen to (for native listeners).
And this is the live podcast app for iPhone. there is also one for Android.
The ordinary people are broadcasting there. I think you can use this in your country.
You can comment on the personality in chat, and he may reply to you.
I'm listening to US/UK radio to be used to the English sound while I'm cooking and driving, and it would work well for you as well.
Voice-to-text can make some hilarious errors while dictating. Do you have any bad misinterpretations by Dragon?
I was wondering if any of you used Voice Dictation software to assist you in TW. Any tips on the software - commercial or open source - would be highly appreciated.
To be honest, the idea of using Voice Dictation and simple markup languages feels very appealing, and I was curious if anyone ventured into that path - or any similar/parallel path - to learn more from them.
I have been self studying Korean for only a little over a week( not long, I know), using howtostudykorean.com and a little 90day/ TTMIK and I’ve been pretty impressed with what I’ve been able to take in so far, as far as sentence structure. But I am having the ROUGHEST time with listening and trying to dissect very basic short sentences or greetings, even slowed down, on the htsk videos or anything else basic. I just want to get on top of it before it’s even more of a problem.
Can anyone share good resources for understanding spoken Korean that will help me?
Also, am I just extra slow or is spoken one of the hardest parts for most learners? I’ve also studied a few Romance languages and I’ve had trouble with dictation most in those too. Although I must say at least with Korean, sounds/syllables don’t get slurred together or dropped as much as those in my experience (at least so far).
Thanks so much!!
Book of Abraham apologetics have drawn extra attention in the past week or so due to John Gee's recent Interpreter article. For the most part, the focus has been his complaint that the Joseph Smith Papers Project (JSPP) is siding with "anti-Mormons," by which he presumably means critical historians Dan Vogel and Brent Metcalfe, with whom the JSPP has collaborated on their most recent volume. The JSPP remains academically minded and has done an admirable job avoiding apologetics, letting the evidence lead the way as much as possible. In devotional settings such as firesides and church interviews, the scholars involved typically promote a revelatory model for the Book of Abraham that can best be described as a hybrid "catalyst" model, in which Smith is both divinely inspired yet granted vast authorial input. This model is evidently is not faithful enough for the folks at Interpreter.
It is impossible to address all the Book of Abraham apologetics in the span of a single reddit post. Vogel has created hours of video devoted to that cause, and has a new book coming out on the topic as well. Instead, I thought I'd focus on a handful of apologetics I've seen in these recent discussions, because it's one that gave me a very small piece of hope during my faith crisis.
The bulk of the Interpreter's apologetic arguments are slanted towards arguing that the source material for the Book of Abraham is missing, and that the papyri we do have were not used by Joseph Smith to produce the Book of Abraham. Most of these arguments never had a chance with me during my faith transition, since they ignore the reality that we have Egyptian hieroglyphs in our canonized scriptures already, along with Smith's incorrect translation of them. So really, lost scrolls can't rescue the Book of Abraham, and thus their arguments failed to provide me any real relief. But I proceed evaluating some of these arguments anyway, peripheral as they ultimately are. First though, we need to discuss some background that is necessary before discussing the apologetic answer I allude to.
The main roadblock to the "missing scroll" theory is that we have the scribes' copies of Smith's dictation of the Book of Abraham, and they go to the trouble of lining up specific hieroglyphs with Smith's translation. The characters aligned with the translated text derive sequentially from our extant papyri, reading right to left. Where the papyri were damaged/ripped, characters were... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was texting a TBM family member to tell them I was on my way home when I slipped on some ice in the parking lot. I landed on my back and wasn’t seriously injured. tender mercies or something
Thankfully it didn’t send, but when I picked up my phone, the message from vocal dictation was
“Yeah I’m just getting in the fuck shit stupid fucking ice”
It’s was fun to recognize I had a moment of appropriately swearing on my own.
I had made a couple of comments about workplace ergonomics, voice to text/dictation and RA accommodations and got a couple DMs for more information so I thought I would make a larger post here with the information as I know it 😊.
First and foremost, I cannot recommend Occupational Therapists (OT) enough. We all know that RA is tricky and quite different for everybody, so the personalized attention and help that you can get from an OT is second to none. In my experience, my Rheumatologist is there to manage my medication. The OT is there to help me live my life. They provide support with braces; but also, other tools, exercises and general advice on how to live your life with this disease. Here in Ontario, an OT is covered by OHIP with referral from your rheumatologist, or simply free through the Arthritis Society.
I want to acknowledge that I live and work in Ontario Canada, I think it is the same in other provinces, but I can't really speak to what things are like in other countries as far as accommodations. Here, once you are hired, your workplace has a duty to accommodate your needs (excepting some cases when a request would cause “undue harm” to the company) AODA In my experience, most companies I have worked for been pretty good with accommodating my needs, but I'm sure some of you have some horror stories.
All the ergonomic stuff I have ever requested have always been approved, without me ever having to provide any rationale. Honestly, IMO any “forward thinking” workplace should want to buy their employees ergonomic equipment as requested as in the long run it is much cheaper to buy the equipment then have employees on disability with soft tissue issues, tendonitis etc. Depending on your employer or location, you should not need to disclose your RA to request I know that may not be the case everywhere, so just like to acknowledge my privilege in the access to this sometimes-expensive equipment.
I want to start here since it is foundational and really is advice for everybody, not just those with RA.

I recently purchased an M1 Mac and I would like to get started with Dictation. My intention was to purchase Dragon for Mac, but it has been discontinued.
Is there a go-to alternative? Is the built in MacOS dictation any good? Is there any good guides, videos or how-tos you would suggest to someone who wants to get the most out of dictation?
I currently have the rebble dictation/weather subscription service and I will probably keep it even if I figure this out but I want to host my own diction service just to see if I can.
I've hit a wall but this is what I've done so far:
first I set up debian 10 with python3, pip, git, and docker. Then did the following:
git clone https://github.com/pebble-dev/rebble-asr
in Dockerfile change $PORT to 443
in asr/__init__.py change API_KEY to my own google speech-to-text api key
also remove the lines with auth_req as I don't think it is needed in this case
docker build -t dictation .
docker run -p 443:443 dictation
That gets the server running
I then redirected xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx-en-us.asr.rebble.io to my own ip the the server is running on. If I was to get this working the best way would be to modify the pebble firmware but the pebble app won't let me manually install firmwares. It just says it's not compatible with the current device even though I know it is.
so right now I have a server running and dictation is being redirected to it. But when I try to activate dictation it says "Error occured. Try again." It's a super generic error but I know it's reaching the server since it errors out immediately when it's running but times out slowly when it's not.
I'm not sure what's wrong here. I'm guessing more in the __init__.py file in the docker instance has to be modified.
M1 Air users, do you like it?
For everyone still on olders Macs, would you like to see this change on the upcoming Apple Silicon Macbooks?
