How to Dictate to Your iPad 2

See that screenshot? The awesome Dragon Dictation app did that, transcribing every word we uttered accurately. We didn’t make a single correction. Not only is the voice recognition solid, you can also easily share the notes via e-mail, Facebook, and Twitter.

  • Download Dragon Dictation (free) from the App Store.
  • Tap your region’s location, and then tap Yes when asked if the app can add the names of your contacts to your vocabulary on the server.
  • Tap the circular button to start dictating.
  • Speak toward the microphone (the app literally points to it on-screen) and include punctuation at the end of your sentences.
  • Tap the down arrow icon in the top right corner to insert the dictation into an outgoing e-mail or post it to Facebook or Twitter.
