953 – Note Taking (again) (not)

There are plenty of online services that will take an audio file and transcribe it. Most of them are paying, but there might be some that are fre, probably though, with limitations. I don’t want to pay.

A good friend suggested using Siri on my iPhone to record a note. The mistake I made was to try it without any practice whilst out for my walk. It didn’t work. I could get Siri to open the app, but I had to unlock my phone myself. I could open the notes app from Siri, but I had to enable dictation. To be honest, I found it too fiddly. There’s probably an easier way to do this, but I need to practice.

One obvious route is pen and paper, which is fine (perhaps) if the weather is ok but just no good if raining (I don’t walk if it is already raining, but it sometimes start midwalk). Reporters pad or a small notebook? I’ll have to try that.

Does there have to be a technological solution to my problem? I have no problem if there is but I won’t discount a traditional method. I like the way my paper diary and I still have a Filofax which I have only recently stopped using.

There’s obviously some research needed here. I shall carry on and report back.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
