    Hi Buddy,

    I'd like to know where can I get a tool to convert speech to text. It's not cheap to get a person to do a transcription for me. Might as well get a software do it.

    If anyone has this kind of software/tool, would you like to share with me? Or at least let me know what tool I can use.

    Thanks!

    Another note concerning the above mentioned software:

    It's WELL worth the money to invest in a quality headset microphone. You can go with the el-cheapo from Walmart or the office suplly store but I promise that you wont be able to use the software to it's full potential with a substandard mic. Google it and i'm sure you can find a really top notch model for around $150.

    NextUp Talker Benefits:
    Specifically designed for use in conversation
    More pleasant conversations using latest generation, high-quality, Natural sounding voices.
    Easy use with either mouse or keyboard.
    Smooth conversation flow with less delays due to typing by using predefined, often used phrases and user created abbreviations.
    Adapts to your style and speed with options to speak each word as typed, each sentence, each paragraph, or on demand.
    Ability to insert actual sound files along with speech. These can help make kids more comfortable talking with an adult using a computer.


    Our Goal with NextUp Talker
    Over the past 5 years, we have developed the world's most popular Text To Speech program, called TextAloud. It is a general consumer product used for listening to email, web pages, and documents. During that time we've had thousands of users who have lost their voice and have trouble communicating with others. TextAloud and other PC based programs have never worked very well as conversation tools, because they simply aren't designed in that way. So until now, the best option has been to use dedicated hardware devices for voice replacement. These can cost up to $3000 and typically have very mechanical sounding voices. Our goal with the release of NextUp Talker is to use all of the advances in computer based voices and what we've learned from our customers to offer an affordable product for people who have either temporarily or permanently lost their voice.

    Designing for Conversation
    One problem with using computers for conversation is the delay during entry of messages. We've attempted several things to help with this:
    Predefined Phrases
    NextUp Talker let's you create an unlimited number of phrases you often use. These are arranged in a multi-level menu system. So, for example, you might have a menu of phrases you typically use with the telephone. You might have a phrases named "Greeting" that has the text

    "Hi. This is John. I'm using a computer to talk with you, so please be patient as I type my responses. If you don't understand the voice or need me to repeat something, just let me know".

    So, when you answer the phone, you could access that phrase quickly and have it spoken without typing it. Phrases can also have parameters within them, for cases where you need to customize the phrase. For example, you may have a phrase named "How Are You" that has the text

    "Hi %name%. How are you today"

    When you choose this phrase, NextUp Talker will prompt you for what you want to say for %name% then speak the phrase. So you access the "How Are You" phrase, NextUp Talker will popup a window asking you for the name, you type in "Betty", then NextUp Talker will speak "Hi Betty, How are you?"

    Predefined phrases can be quickly accessed during conversations by

    Double-clicking the phrase on the left side of the program
    Using shortcut key combinations you define
    From a right-click popup menu in the typing area
    From the Insert Menu.
    Abbreviations and ShortHand
    NextUp Talker includes an Abbreviations and ShortHand editor. With this, you can define short strings to represent longer phrases or sentences. So for example, if you frequently say something like "Could you bring me something to drink please", you could define an abbreviation of "gdrink" to be that full string. Then, when typing text into NextUp Talker, if you simply type "gdrink" the program will speak "Could you bring me something to drink please?". Over time as you get used to using the program, you'll develop your own version of shorthand that will speed up your typing.

    Inserting Sound Files
    NextUp Talker can also mix in actual sound files into speech. You can insert a link to a sound file using the insert menu. For some users who have warning before losing their voice, such as is the case often with surgery, you can use your computer to record various sound files saying things like "I love you", or answering the phone. These recordings can then be intermixed with text to speech. Another neat use is inserting sound effects. There are a huge number of free sound files on the internet. A common use for these might be to include some funny sound effects with your speech. This is especially helpful when speaking with children. The funny sounds often help children become more comfortable when talking with someone who has to use a computer.

    Access for those with physical limitations
    Especially for those with ALS who have lost their voice, they face the additional challenge of losing muscle control and having difficulty fully using a mouse and keyboard. We've attempted to design NextUp Talker to work well with either a mouse or keyboard, and hopefully work with "virtual keyboards". We haven't done a lot of testing in these areas yet, so we would appreciate any and all feedback to help us continue to improve.

    Natural Sounding Voices
    A computer will never replace the voice you've lost. However, in recent years, computer voices have become more and more human like. Choosing one or more computer voices that you like and that you feel comfortable with is important. This will become YOUR voice to friends and family. We sell a variety of optional voices for use with NextUp Talker :
