I have so many thoughts bubbling around in my head each day where I think “this would make a good blog post” and then they’re gone because I don’t have anywhere to write them down.
The other night, I had the bright idea of just talking at Siri on my phone for 5 minutes – I knew I wouldn’t need to correct too many of the dictation errors if I was just taking blog notes, I’m usually pretty good at figuring out what Siri misheard.
I’ve just spent a half hour turning 5 minutes of notes into 6 blog posts, which I think is pretty good going!
Actually – I was pleasantly surprised by Siri’s accuracy in taking dictation into notes, except when I said that sentence there – ironically Siri didn’t recognise his own name! (My Siri is set up to have a male voice with a mild Australian accent. Much less irritating than the default!)
