The keyboard is largely customizable, has an excellent text corrector, and creates great stickers automatically, sometimes giving tens of options. There are lots of ways to adjust the abundance of available settings to change it up every now and then. You can change the color, a background picture theme, or a background color, or a left-hand style of keyboard, or an unusual floating keyboard. Is it possible to add features like sentence correction to enhance email writing or paragraph checking, similar to Grammarly or WordTune? An idea is to be able to have bold and various fonts to pick from and colors of ink to type with. Along with having a great Google Translate feature, which can be used without having to switch between the app and the keyboard.

This app is really handy and helpful, and even correctly types such exotic technical words as Mycenaean correctly, even on its first try. With emphasis and giving system time to catch up, it generally begins transcribing perfectly. Find out where the app best responds to your voice by varying the position of your phone and then looking to see how accurate the dictation is. This is super because it keeps the information you speak or type in memory without having to hit save or use extra keystrokes. Works well when you speak punctuation marks like space, comma, colon, full stop, and even 'new line'. More practice is needed and we are looking for the fastest way to export the files.

The app allows you to easily send calls directly to voicemail, send text messages through the web app, and transcribe voicemails as well. Cellular service can be off, and as long as you have a local Wi-Fi connection, you have fully functional texts, calls, and video. Many different numbers are available and offered to keep the same device without the same call ID. Voice allows you to have a different number with a completely different ringtone for voice and a different notification for messaging. Numerous times, it's literally been a lifesaver when I've needed to call for food or help. Like when you do or don't want to take calls, vacation responders, and so much more.

The ability to both listen to the recording and have it track the transcription, the building up of keyword lists; it is all phenomenal. The accuracy is pretty good, and the software allows you to edit the text while listening to the audio in real-time. And also, sometimes I feel overwhelmed at meetings, trying to process information, extract conclusions and next steps, keep notes, and communicate back. Transcripts that detect different voices for easy conversation reading, as accurate or better than Google's voice recognition, and multiple ways to organize and export files for sharing. This is supposed to be a business thing, where you can automatically transcribe a meeting with multiple people, including names and time stamps, and stuff. Let's you move the playhead based on where you are in the text transcription, then let you export the text as PDF, text, etc.
