'Dragon Dictation' Makes Dictating Documents, Emails or Social Media Posts a Breeze

On the iPhone J.D. blog, Jeff Richardson has a helpful post for lawyers looking to buy a new iPad. He directs readers to a post by Rob Dean on his WalkingOffice blog that similarly walks lawyers through some of the latest apps available for the iPad and how to use these apps in a law practice.

I have an iPhone, not an iPad, but checked out the various apps suggested by Dean to see if any of them were of particular interest. I can quickly tell that one of these apps called Dragon Dictation will be quite useful to me. After downloading this free app to your iPhone and opening it up, it takes you to a screen where you can dictate a message that it immediately converts to text. Your mileage may vary, but Dragon Dictation converted the short paragraph I dictated off the top of my head into text flawlessly.

The most useful part to me is that once the dictated message is converted to text, Dragon Dictation then allows you to instantly send that message out through your iPhone via text message, email, Facebook or Twitter. It also allows you to copy the text so that you can then paste it elsewhere. So the next time you have a message that you're trying to get out quickly to a colleague or to the world, simply dictate it, convert it with Dragon Dictation, and hit send. Very cool!
