Ok guys this is a tutorial and I am going to show you how to churn out 10000 words in a day without touching your keyboard, and the good thing is you'll be using your smartphone for this.
All the applications that are needed to achieve this are all on Google play store and they are free to use.
You don't need to waste money on dragon naturally speaking or any other costly AI dictation software.
So what do you need?
1. Gboard application
2. Sticky notes application
3. Grammarly keyboard.
4. WriterP
4. Internet connection
5. Brain.apk (I'm just kidding)

***Gboard***

This is the main dictation application that we will be using and it is the master app to use if you want to be able to churn out lots of words with your voice.
One thing I like about the Gboard application is that you can be able to float this app and it has an inbuilt voice typing feature.
By the way, I'm using Gboard to write this article.

So once you install the app, click on the little microphone icon at the right and make sure that your internet connection is on.
Having the internet connection on will ensure that the artificial intelligence picks up the words coming out from your mouth accurately.
Also, it helps to train the application to be conversant with your voice.

The more you dictate with this app, the more it learns and makes fewer mistakes

The Gboard voice typing is quite good! It automatically detects coughs and skips writing them!!

You can easily click on the delete button to delete the text that you were writing if Gboard gives the wrong words, and when you are through, you can continue your voice typing.

Here are a few voice commands you can use:

Period - insert a period.​
New line - Goes to a new line.​
Open bracket - Opens a bracket "("​
Close bracket - Closes a bracket ")"​
Colon - Inserts a colon ":"​
Hyphen - Inserts a hyphen "-"​

The more you use the Gboard application for voice typing, the more it learns from your voice and you can be able to write more accurately without touching your keyboard.

I recommend that you use this application every day both for chatting, writing, and virtually anything that you are doing so that it can be able to learn from your voice.

To be frank this app is very good and sophisticated because I have used this to write an e-book of more than 10k words in one day.
5k words in the morning, 5k words in the evening. Of course, I have already done my book outline and research so it was a walk in the park.

PS: Kindly proofread immediately after voice typing, gboard is not all-knowing so there are words it might misinterpret.
I normally proofread after voice typing a topic/outline.

Sticky notes

As the name implies, it is a kind of a text field that floats over other applications so it can be used for writing while doing your research online.
All I have to do is to open a fresh sticky notes and then go over to the article you want to rewrite and then start voice typing using Gboard.

Using the sticky notes and the G board application is an awesome combination!

Grammarly keyboard

Even though Gboard voice typing is quite accurate there are scenarios where errors abound.
But thanks to Grammarly you don't have to worry about that.
Just change your keyboard to Grammarly with your internet connection on, and it will highlight errors in your manuscript which you can be able to edit.
It also serves as a quick grammar checker.

WriterP

This is a very handy application that can be used to organize your write-ups.
You can make folders to organize your write-ups, and the best part, no annoying ads!
I'm not in any way affiliated with this app, just that it serves its purpose and is very useful.

How to use Gboard voice typing effectively?

  • First of all, you have to flesh out your points by organizing them into topics, that is, after making thorough research on the topic.
  • Search a topic that you've outlined on Google and then use your sticky notes to place over the article and start writing using your voice. Easy as pie.
  • Once you are through with that topic copy from sticky notes and paste into Writerp.
  • Ensure that you create a separate file for each topic all inside a folder.
  • WriterP gives you the feature to create a folder that you can use to organize your files.
Tip

  • When using Gboard voice typing, ensure to say your words in paragraphs so that it can be able to determine what exactly you wanted to say. If you speak word by word it might come out inaccurately.

  • There is no way Gboard will pick up everything you say accurately, so do well to proofread immediately after typing.
  • If you are not a native English speaker you can choose other languages by going to the settings > voice typing > offline speech recognition> languages

Then choose your language and go back to Gboard to see the effects.

  • A very good way to proofread fast is by using text-to-speech software. There are lots of application on Google play store that serve this purpose. Choose any one that suits your taste and use it.
  • Simply paste your text into the app, plug in your earphones and listen.
  • if you spot any errors, pause it and correct them immediately then continue.

And eh... I think that's it!!

Now go populate that blog ASAP!!

Thanks for reading...

It's voice to text, but that doesn't solve the problem of writing articles - you still need to speak out cogent sentences and know what you're talking about.

If you just write like you talk, you'll end up with ums and ughs and lots of filler words that people don't want to read.

Way people speak:
The um cat ate some food and then uh like sat on the mat over there.

vs the way people write/read:
The cat ate food & sat on the mat.

I have tried a lot of speech to text writing. It's a good alternative but you can't use it in noisy places or an office where other people hear you.

Given that I write alone in a quiet room and the fact that Google apps usually pick up my voice fairly accurately, I really do see myself using this method to write content for my blog. Thank you for sharing this!

I messaged the OP but mustn't have been interested as never got back to me.

But how about using Youtube tutorials and putting their audio into text? It's likely to be unique as the original is audio not text so = free, quick, unique content. Then use Grammarly to proof read and check.

It's already been outlined in this post.
