A Possible Solution: You may already have a solution in your pocket! Have you ever thought of using your smartphone to transcribe an audio version of an image/chart/video/etc? If you have a recent device, this is easier and quicker than you think!
- On most Android devices, there is a small microphone button on the keyboard. If you tap this button when writing an e-mail, you can read the information from your media, and it will be transcribed into text for you. Send the e-mail to yourself, and copy it into a Word Document, a page in your online course, etc.!
- On Samsung’s Android devices, you have “S-Voice”, which will do much the same thing. Create a new e-mail message, and in the body of the message, quickly press the “Home” button on your device twice. This will launch S-Voice. Once S-Voice has loaded, you can tap the large button to pause or re-start your transcription at any time.
