Wiesbaden, Germany – iOS developer Spielhaus today is pleased to introduce Dictabulus: Speech -> Text -> Mac. The iPhone 4S only app showcases a clever use of Siri to transfer spoken text to the frontmost window on a Mac via WiFi.
With the latest iPhone 4S Apple pioneered another underused area of today’s smartphones. Siri – the automated assistant understands spoken language and can accomplish various tasks ranging from writing emails to scheduling reminders. It does so by analyzing speech and transforming it into text. Dictabulus from Spielhaus forwards the text returned by Siri and sends it to the mac creating a fast and simple dictate tool.
Users only need to run a free helper tool on their Mac. The helper tool waits for the Dictabulus app to connect, then forwards the text returned from Siri and pastes it into the frontmost window on the Mac. This happens instantly and facilitates a very easy way to dictate emails and create any kind of texts.
