Speech-to-Text (STT) Resources
From a writing standpoint, speech-to-text (STT) applications provide individuals who are unable to access a standard keyboard or mouse with the option to “type” via voice dictation. These tools are also useful for individuals with struggle with organizing their thoughts and getting them out on paper so to speak. STT tools make it easy to simply dictate your notes, discussion posts, papers, etc.
