I have an access database that I use for field data entry

Right now I use a tabled and either type or use handwritting recognition to enter notes

Has anybody had experience with using spoken data entry (like my Iphone allows for text messages)

This would be a huge time saver

Thanks

No recommendations either way  (I don't personally have such a need), but remember that Windows 7, at least, has Speech recognition as a built-in facility

rogerdjr,

What you are looking for is often called Speech Recognition or Speech-to-Text.  This is usually handled by Windows (the OS). Most applications will see the text as keyboard input. You place the cursor when you want to inset text and type or speak.  

I am using the Windows 7 Speech Recognition feature to write this reply in Word. I will then copy and paste it here.

Just note that all of these utilities will require a learning curve.

In other words you don't just talk into the mic and have everything transcribed perfectly.

And doing other basic "Editing" may prove to be problematic
(Spellcheck, Copy, backspace, Overtype, Delete, ...etc)
