I'm not sure if you guys remember but I think Paul made a post about using the voice to text feature to make Forum moderacion easier. I remember that earlier today so I've been using it to make a ton of post for the gear competition thing. I figured I might as well share this so you can guys can have some fun

using the voice to text feature to make Forum moderacion easier.



Is that option here at permies?  

How do we do this?  ....sounds like fun although I'm not sure I see how it would make moderation any easier?

I use voice to text. Sometimes with comical results. Concerning moderation, if you ever see anything from me that you don't like , just know that it's the voice to text doing it's own thing again .

If you are using a mobile phone, there is a microphone somewhere on your keyboard. On Apple devices it's in the lower left-hand corner, on android devices it's in the lower right. You will need a network signal, which is often a problem in rural living. I use it all the time, especially for text messages. I also used it for this post.

Be aware that the software will want to replace common nouns with corporate names (note that it made a proper noun out of Apple, but not out of android... And I'm using an android ) . Eventually it will be impossible to say a sentence without invoking a dozen multinationals.
