Please redirect me and merge the thread if this is already covered elsewhere and up to date (a lot has happened in the past 5yrs for software I'm guessing). I'm realising that if I could dictate what I write, and ideally have the computer sometimes read to me what I want to read, I would be able to both do and rest more. My cognitive issues are bad enough that I'm struggling to keep up with essentials, and unable to deal with important things like wills and similar legal stuff. Can anyone recommend the best software for voice to text? I would prefer not to have to be online when using it but I'm slowly getting to realise this might be a necessary compromise (of my privacy). I do have an iPad mini but I don't want to take the time and effort to train it (I tried once and it's insanely bad at first - and you have to be online) if there is something better out there. Suggestions?
