Alternatives to Typing - Request for Help
« on: April 13, 2018, 11:23:04 AM »
Hello All,
I've begun working on a project to create text without typing.  I plan present it at a future SLO Bytes Second Session meeting. 
I am only considering freeware and trialware as opposed to commercial software.

One approach is optical character recognition (OCR).  The user scans a document and then uses OCR software to turn the image into text.
This is possible by pasting a .jpg image into Microsoft OneNote, selecting Copy Text from Picture and pasting the results into another document.

I found more OCR programs at https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/top-5-free-ocr-software-tools-to-convert-your-images-into-text-nb/  and elsewhere

Another approach is to use Speech Recognition software
One such program is Voice Notepad; an add on for Google Chrome - See https://dictation.io/speech

Please feel free to add the software/methods that you use.
