Starting One Church is taking every waking minute of my time. I’m having to intentionally set boundaries to make sure that I’m spending some time with my family in the evenings and taking one day off per week. So, any technology that helps me save time is worth a lot… especially if it’s free.:)
I’ve been using the Dragon Naturally Speaking app for awhile. It enables you to speak texts, email, notes, ideas, etc. into your phone, correct them if necessary, and then email it, text it, publish it Facebook or Twitter, etc. It’s incredibly accurate, and I’ve literally spoken entire sermons into my phone and then emailed them to myself.
You can only record in about 30 second chunks, but that’s not a problem. At the end of about 30 seconds, you just click “Done.” The screen displays the text of what you’ve spoken so far. You can then hit “Record” again and add to your message or email or text it, publish it to Facebook, Twitter, etc.
It’s one of the most helpful apps I’ve found. Read more about it here:
