In fact, on my wonderful hideous rainy commute down GA 400 from Roswell to ATV this morning, I have created drafts for 4 blog posts, in addition to this one.
And it’s even easier than you think. I open the WordPress app for iOS, open a draft, press the microphone, and start talking. I can’t imagine creating a final post from voice to text, but creating a draft and getting all of my thoughts out of my head and onto “paper” is very helpful and easy.
There are other limitations as well. For example, I can’t add an image to the draft, nor can I actually do any real editing of the draft. However, that actually helps me. Sometimes I write and edit too fast, meaning that I write a post or article and immediately read and edit the post. That usually doesn’t give my brain enough time to refresh my thoughts and consider how I’m conveying my thoughts. What I have found that works for me is to write everything that’s in my head about a certain topic, then come back later and reread and edit the post from a fresh perspective.
Writing via voice to text enables – no, forces – me to do exactly that, not to mention that I can talk much faster than I can type. And, yes, Drivin’ N Cryin’ does get credit for the title of this post.
