Anyone use any of these to dictate shrothand on? Please no spam. (Members with no other posts then this one will be deleted as spam).
Give us the name and a brief discription also what your thoughts on it and how much shorthand dictation you have used on this. Also any special things, price, quality, etc. And which product you use this one (Xoom tablet or Droid X2 or both, etc).
"Gregg Shorthand had achieved the most extraordinary success ever attained by any system in the history of shorthand." John Robert Gregg, 1922
There's one called Hi-Q MP3 Recorder. I tried the Free version and recorded my side of a telephone conversation with the phone off to the left of me and I wasn't even facing the phone. Oh to clarify, I was on my work phone. My Cell Phone, with the app recording, was off to the left of me. I was looking at the computer screen while it was recording.
I listened to it at lunch and it sounded great. So I bought the full version at $3.99, which will give me unlimited recording time.
Now there is no text or transcription of this. Also on my phone, a Droid 1, I had to change the setting so the screen wouldn't go to sleep mode and then I could keep recording (I hope). Havne't tried it past that yet.
I have not tried it for shorthand, just got it yesterday for something else. But coming here made me think about using it as such. I think I'll try that at lunch today. I'll report back.
I do have to admit it has great quality. I set the phone beside me in the car and it recorded great.
