AV-Voice-Changer-Software-Diamond-Edition.png 1384961237I like playing with audio. Changing, warping and morphing sounds, effects and voices can be pretty cool and can be a lot of fun, if you have the right app to push the activity. This is one of the reasons why applications like AV Voice Changer Software Diamond is pretty cool. It’s a cool audio app for Windows, and its really a lot of fun.

Listen N Write Free

Quickly transcribe lectures and audio conferences with this handy Windows app.

Being a college student isn’t easy. Life expands exponentially after high school graduation, and many students are caught unaware of the changes in  academic expectations.  When it comes to taking notes in large lecture halls during your college career, it’s easy to miss important points while trying to copy down something your professor just said. This is one of the reasons why applications like Listen N Write Free are important to have. It’s a transcription app for your Windows machine, and it’s a must have.

LNW-01One of the biggest things that college freshman have to adjust to is the college lecture. You don’t necessarily have any guarantee that what is lectured on is actually relevant course material, but in many cases, it is; and you’re going to need to memorize it and perhaps recall it for an exam.  It’s for this reason that students, and even conference attendees, or lawyers – basically anyone who has to transcribe recorded audio – should try Listen N Write, It’s a free tool designed for transcription.

Interestingly enough, LnW doesn’t use speech recognition or automatic transcription. The app is a media player bundled with a text editor. However, don’t stop reading yet. The media player has subtle but clever differences that make it a great tool for playing back recorded lectures and speeches and writing down what you hear. Its skip arrows move the recording forward or back by just a few seconds, ending the ever-so-frustrating back-and-forth as you try to zero in on a single word or short phrase. When you hit the Pause button, Listen N Write’s media player reverses the recording by one second, which helps keep words from being truncated or garbled during playback-pause-playback activities.

LNW-04Listen N Write’s interface consists of three pieces: the media player and the optional text editor and a bookmarks box.  Only the media player and text editor open by default. You can hide or show the bookmarks and text editor via the media player’s View menu.  The rest of the menu bar’s entries should be familiar to most users.

The media player itself is extremely simple, just a file title field, an Open File icon, playback controls, a volume slider, and a progress bar. The Text Editor has the usual toolbar full of controls. The Bookmarks box is simple.

The app is easy enough to use. The pause button pulls the recording back a full second so you really won’t miss anything.  The biggest problem I have with a tool like this is that it doesn’t use speech recognition to automate the transcription. You have to do it all by hand, which was totally NOT cool.

iPad 3 Rumors & Thoughts – Part 2: iOS 6

With Steve Jobs gone and his legacy not completely publically known or understood, the iPad 3 is almost a complete unknown as well. Let’s take a look at some of the rumors and see what’s what.

I’ve been reading the authorized Steve Jobs biography, and quite honestly, I’ve been learning a great deal. Apple very much *IS* Steve Jobs, and vice-versa. It’s been an interesting read. Much of the design and thoughts for the iPad itself came before the iPhone. It was put on hold to address and release the need for the iPhone. However, the magic that is the iPhone will forever be beholden to the iPad. This was probably one of the most interesting revelations I’ve encountered in the book so far. But the iPad… that was Steve’s baby. He really wanted to do a tablet to counter the netbook surge and push, which is pretty much OVER at this point.

Apple has the tablet market pretty much sewn up. At this point, Android can try all it wants, but without the walled garden that Apple has cultivated and nurtured, it’s going to be hard for Google, any of their hardware partners, or ANYONE really, to catch up to them any time soon.

So, with all that, let’s take a quick gander at what is likely to come to iPad and iPhone fans alike with the next major release of iOS.

Siri Matures
I’ve been using my iPhone 4S for a couple of months, and I really like Siri; though at times, I think she thinks I have a speech impediment. I keep on asking her, “what’s my day like;” and she keeps telling me that she doesn’t understand, “what’s my daylight.” Awesome. Love that. I’ve also noticed that Siri on EDGE isn’t as accurate as Siri on 3G/4G (HSPA+); but that’s another matter entirely.

With the next MAJOR release of iOS, meaning iOS 6, we’re going to see a major bump in Siri’s maturity level. You’re going to be able to ask her to do a lot more and she’s going to be more integrated in how the device works. While she won’t be a complete consumer AI, she’s going to be the closest thing that John Q. Public will likely see for a while

Siri’s biggest problem, however, is not what she can’t do, or even that she may not listen very well. It’s that people don’t really know all of what she can and cannot do. My biggest problem with Siri is that I really don’t know what she’s capable of; and depending on what kind of cellular coverage you may have, if your inside or outside the Wi-Fi zone or perhaps having a bad hair day, Siri’s success in understanding what you want/need/mean when you speak may vary.

Apple needs to improve her listening skills and needs to insure that the local device does as much of the heavy lifting as it can. Voice recognition shouldn’t depend on your network connection speed. For example, when I ask Siri to call so and so, Siri seems to do a lot of thinking on my end. I know I have 1600+ contacts, but the response back from her should be almost instantaneous if I have so and so in my Contact List.

Support for Siri over LTE is also pretty much a no-brainer, given the inclusion of the mobile technology at a hardware level.

Improved Google Maps and Navigation Integration
There are two issues here – an improved Google Maps (just called Maps in iOS, but it’s the same thing) and integration with a navigation app. Its separate for a couple of reasons.

  • Google Maps for iOS is a mapping only app. There have been improvements made to Maps over the past few full revisions of iOS, but it’s not done anything more than provide map information and directions from A to B since its introduction.
  • Google has kept turn-by-turn navigation in Google Maps for its own Android OS.

In the next major version of iOS, Apple needs to give you support for the following use case:

  • 1. User – Siri, where’s the nearest ?
  • 2. Siri – I have found the following near your location.
  • 3. Siri – Would you like to navigate/go to any of them.
  • 4. User – Yes
  • 5. Siri – Which ?
  • 6. User –
  • 7. Siri – Would you like to walk or drive there from your current location? (if walking is a reasonable option)
  • 8. User –
  • 9. Siri – Which navigation application would you like to use? You have the following navigation applications installed.

or,

  • You don’t have any navigation applications installed. Would you like to search for and purchase one from the App Store?

or,

  • You don’t have any navigation applications installed. Would you like to me to generate directions with Maps?
  • 10. User – Makes appropriate choice
  • 11. Siri – Provides directions or launches purchased navigation app, passing the appropriate origin and destination variables to the app.

This will require modification on the part of the navigation app so it can accept these variables from Siri, but that should be doable, especially if Apple provides the appropriate API’s. Apple also needs to grow Siri so that she can control hardware iPhone components (volume, screen brightness, Bluetooth radio (Siri, turn on Bluetooth and pair/connect with/to.)

At the end of the day, though, you can see that Apple needs to do something with the current version of Maps, because it’s just not cutting it. Maps is nice, but giving me directions and not turn by turn navigation is not what users want. Apple doesn’t control the version of Maps in iOS, and while they can augment it some with Siri, and perhaps provide an API so other navigation apps can fit in, there are rumors that a recent acquisition may be a more likely result than an API for other navigation apps or than expecting Google to bring its Navigation to the party.

Come back next time, and I’ll dive into when and how the iPad 3 will be released.

Give voice commands with Dragon Dictate

I’ve been a big supporter of, “you talk, it types” for over 10 years. I remember using IBM’s ViaVoice on my Windows XP powered PC back in 1997. While it was, at times, wonderful to be able to give my arthritic hands a break from the amount of typing I do, its performance issues often prevented the creative process from really flowing the way it should have. Writers write. However, it’s not always easy to do when you have to….speak….very…slowly, and very…exactingly. All that’s changed now; and thanks to Dragon Dictate for Mac, I’ve got my MacBook Pro turning cartwheels.

If you’re a productivity junky, like me, then you’re going to love this application. With it, you can control your Mac in a relaxed, hands-free manner without being tied to your keyboard. Instead of using your mouse, you can just speak commands to launch and control applications. You can move the cursor or click anywhere on your screen simply by using your voice. You can tell your Mac what to do, like “Reply To This Message” or “Open Microsoft Word” or “Jump To Google” to work faster and smarter. Create voice commands that automate complex workflows on your Mac.

You’ll need to insure that you have a powerful enough Mac to push this app, however. The biggest issue with this app was system performance and what my Mac was doing with other processor cores and available RAM.  You’ll also find that you need a specialized microphone in order to get the best performance from the app. Please don’t think that you’re going to be able to use the microphone that may be built into your Mac and get really great voice to text recognition. It just isn’t going to happen.  A standard gaming headset should do very well.
