Haig Evans-Kavaldjian

Yes, I have some similarly stupid and bizarre transcriptions. Fortunately it seems to do much better with very short, very simple messages, so I have taken to calling and leaving To Do notes for myself, which Google Voice then dutifully transcribes and sends to me by SMS. Voila, voice to text, and a nice self-reminder system.


Haig, that's a great idea! I just updated the post above to include my GV number, so others can leave messages that will hopefully baffle the transcription service with amusing outcomes. "Did with crickets" indeed!


Hahha I found this post quite amusing. I actually found this using google voice search on my G1 phone. I was frustrated with google voice not understanding me and I have an american accent. So I said stupid google voice which it surprisingly understood your post was the first thing in the search!!! -Angelina

What words or phrases would you type in Google to find a transcription service?
Imagine if you were looking for a website that offered transription services (taking your audio files and typing everything that is said into a Word document), what would you type into Google to find it?

    Goldfrapp: We Are Glitter
    Goldfrapp's analog to PSB's "Disco", and just as enjoyable. (****)

  • Pet Shop Boys -

    Pet Shop Boys: Fundamental
    Their best production since "Introspective" and almost a complete return-to-form. "I'm With Stupid" and "Integral" light up the floor in front of your stereo, while "The Sodom and Gomorrah Show" recalls the best Frankie Goes To Hollywood moments. Meanwhile, "Casanova In Hell" will transport you to secret chambers where dark deeds receive warm laughs. Fantastic. (*****)
