My friend and partner Greg Shackles and I are proud to announce our app "myEcho" is now available in the US App Store for iPhone. Consider this our Beta Launch. We'll have servers and support for the rest of the world after this soft launch lets us know how our systems survive.
What is myEcho? myEcho is iOS dictation for your Windows PC.
We like our iPhones and we like to dictate text with them. Before today, however, dictation on Windows involved either training applications like Dragon to understand you or wrestling with the Windows in-built voice recognition system. Siri and the iPhone/iPad has fantastic dictation ready to go...why not bring that quality to Windows.
myEcho has two apps:
- The dictation app for your iPhone. You can download it and try it now for free.
- The Windows companion app. You'll download and install this on your PC. We support Windows XP through Windows 8.1 on x86/x64 machines.
Once you pair our Windows companion app with your phonejust speak to your phone and your words appear in whatever Windows application is in front.
We don't store any of your words and your data never touches our disks. You can unpair your phone anytime, or just close the app!
Just speak and your words appear. To speak whole paragraphs of text, also speak your punctuation comma just like this exclamation point ;)
TIP: We think that speaking punctuation is super important. You'll want to say "How are you doing question mark I am doing well comma myself exclamation mark."
If you don't want to install the Windows app, try pairing the iPhone app with our website! You can test it out online, right on here on the site.
After you've tried myEcho out, you can unlock unlimited dictation for just $1.99. Your myEcho purchase is tied to your AppleID. The Windows Companion App has no DRM or licensing and you can install it on as many machines as you'd like.
We hope you enjoy using myEcho as much as we enjoyed creating it.
