MyCaption is a voice-to-text app that we have written about a few times. The company has announced today that it will be using speech recognition technology from Yap, Inc. to drive their business applications for BlackBerry and PBX Voicemail.
Personally, I’ve tried MyCaption and found it incredibly accurate. Although I don’t use it for enterprise purposes, I have found a great consumer use. Whenever I get emails from old friends or coworkers that I need to reply to, but am a little too lazy to type out, I can just talk the email to MyCaption and it translates it surprisingly well.
If you’re an enterprise user, MyCaption will accurately voice-write your email, memos, tasks, contact notes and calendar entries on a BlackBerry. Other features include support for multiple email accounts, ample dictation time, text review and customizable dictionary.
The last time we posted about this company, many commented on the fact that Vlingo provides the same service. Apparently, MyCaption uses a mix of speech recognition technology and human editors, to improve accuracy levels. This mixed technology could be a blessing for business-length messages.
