The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 11/2/18

Nov 2, 2018 | Better Writing

You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Even though writing and storytelling and blogging and SEO aren’t your day job, you want to do them better.

You need to get the most value you can from your reading time. That’s why every week I pick the one post from the web’s multitudes that will help you get better. This week I’m pointing you to a post on voice-to-text software.

From Amber Lee Starfire: Writing Tools: Speech to Text Software – Is It Right for You?

“I also know that sometimes story ideas come when I’m away from my keyboard. This would be a good time for me to take advantage of mobile transcription. Another effective way to use transcription could be when conducting interviews. Or even when writing emails or blog posts. So, I began investigating speech-to-text tools. Or should I say, ‘re-investigating.'”

Here’s a link to my recent post on proofreading software.
