Speechlogger is a voice-to-text web app that is free, easy, and effective. Because the web app allows you to cut and paste text in, it doubles as a text-to-text service. Scores of languages are covered, including less common ones like Basque, Estonian, Urdu, Tamil, and even Esperanto. Helpfully, in many language choices the translated text also has an audio version. This aspect is particularly useful in phone conversations. The translated text can be exported to Google Drive, .txt file, Word doc, caption (.srt) file, or your local drive. The interface has down menus for language selection and easily understood icons for starting new sessions, file upload, and saved sessions. I like the fact that the web app saves previous sessions because I find myself needing commonly used phrases frequently. To start recording just click on the large microphone icon, and click again to stop. While recording the microphone displays a red dot that cycles through small to large to let you now that you are being recorded.
