I heard about Reqall.com here, and thought the idea was awesome - you send audio to a service via e-mail and it transcribes it for you and sends it back. I'd like to be able to take audio-based notes with Evernote and Reqall sounded perfect. After evaluating it for a bit, I think I'm going to have to wait on integrating it into my workflow. Here are my thoughts:
- It touts Evernote integration, but it only integrates by pulling data from Evernote to match the internal notes. I would need it to send the transcription to Evernote
- There is a 30 second limit - perfect for quick to-do items, but not for random journaling.
- The test I did transcribed perfectly, which was really cool.
If I found out that I was able to work with the 30 second limit, I could have the transcription forwarded to my Evernote e-mail account, which would add it in - albeit without any tags.
I've checked out Google Voice for transcription services, but it's limited to 3 minutes. If it was worth it, you could just keep leaving 3 minute voice mails and see how well the audio transcribes.
