Hate Typing? Try Dial2Do Voice Command Service
I've discovered a free online service that helps you reduce your typing. It is called Dial2Do. Through the use of voice technology, Dial2Do let's you send and listen to email messages, text messages, reminders to yourself, and even post messages to Twitter using your voice. If you are tired trying to type from your phone's keypad, Dial2Do may be the app for you.
To set up your account, go to Dial2Do. Create your account using your email address and a password.
Once your account is created, you'll have a series of commands that you use. For example, to send a text message to someone you dial the Dial2Do number, speak your command ("text") and then speak your message. Depending on your preferences, you can have a copy of your spoken message texted to your cell phone and/or email.
I plan too use this service to send Twitter messages when I am away from my laptop, and I'll also use it to send text messages. But there are dozens of other voice commands you can select. You can use "weather" to listen to a weather report. There's "business card" when you want to save someone's contact info before you lose their card. And use "translate" to change your voice message to a text message in a different language!
You can even use Dial2Do to vocally send posts to your blog if you use Blogger or WordPress. Now that is cool!
Lots of great possibilities on Dial2Do. Check it out.
