Turn your screen into an awesome caption-phone. It is completely automatic, with no human-typist hearing your conversations. Are the grandparents finding it hard to hear family and friends over the phone? Turn on Speechlogger for them and stop yelling over the phone. Simply connect the phone's audio output to your computer's audio input and run Speechlogger. It is also helpful in face to face interactions.
Have you recorded an interview? Save some time on transcribing it, with Google's automatic speech to text brought to your browser by Speechlogger. Play the recorded interview into your computer's microphone (or line-in) and let speechlogger do the transcription. Speechlogger saves the transcribed text along with the date, time and your comments. It also lets you edit the text. Phone conversations can be transcribed using the same method. You can also transcribe audio files directly from your computer, as described further down.
Meeting with foreign guests? Bring a laptop (or two) with speechlogger and a microphone. Each party will see the other's spoken words translated into their own language in real time. It is also useful on a phone call in a foreign language, to make sure you fully understand the other side. Connect your phone's audio output to your computer's line-in and start Speechlogger.
Speechlogger is a great tool for learning languages and can be used in several ways. You can use it to learn vocabulary by speaking in your native language and letting the software translate it. You can learn and practice correct pronunciation by talking in the foreign language and seeing whether Speechlogger understands or not. If the transcribed text is in black font it means you pronounced it well.
Speechlogger can automatically transcribe movies, or other audio files. Then take the file and automatically translate it into any language to produce international subtitles.
Writing emails? Papers? Lists? Summaries? Whatever it is you need to type, try dictating it to Speechlogger instead. Speechlogger will automatically save it for you, and will let you export it to a document.
Can you imitate a Chinese speaker? French? What about Russian? Try to imitate a foreign language and see what you just said with Speechlogger. Use Speechlogger's simultaneous translation to understand what you just said. Get surprising results - it's a lot of fun!
Two possible solutions for transcribing audio files:
a) Solution 1: play the file with an external device into your computer using a line-in cable.
b) Solution 2: Install a "virtual line-in cable" as described in this youtube. While this is more complex than the first solution, it will likely be more successful.
