Android apps for speech to text conversion in Indian vernacular languages

Are you someone like us who does not really like typing on that small screen on the smartphone? Have you been checking out a tool or an app that would transcribe the voice in an Indian vernacular language into text and type in the data on its own? Well, app stores do have plenty of those options. Picking the right one is the key to success.

Our brains can process information much faster than our hands can type. Many fields, especially related to Journalism need to focus on their interactions rather than on typing and make use of apps with transcribing feature and hands-free option to be able to effectively multitask and give good turnaround times for publication. In fact, those with larger fingers or hands always find it difficult to work with the small screen keyboard and tend to make a number of typos while working.

A handsfree typing through the means of speech to text is very much useful and practical in letting you focus on genuinely efficient multitasking. While we have a considerably good number of options available for English language transcription, you would perhaps find it a little difficult to get access to the best options for the Indian vernacular languages.

We thought of checking out the best options for the purpose and tested a few apps to analyse their capabilities to arrive at the good options for a few useful Android apps for speech to text conversion in Indian languages.

Hindi Speech To Text

The app works as a great means for a seamless typing in Hindi without the need to have a separate Hindi keyboard. One of the simplest options for transcribing your Hindi speech into text. The application works without any sort of inhibitions with multiple apps.

Yet another excellent functionality we found rather interesting is the fact that the app even lets you copy the text that it has transcribed and use it in multiple situations and with multiple applications. It helps you write Hindi text without the need for a Hindi keyboard. It can also be one of the best options to learn Hindi words.
Reviews suggest the app works seamlessly and offers you a truly reliable service. While the free version of the app comes with ads, you can opt for the Pro version with a one-time payment and get rid of ads. A few of the excellent features offered by the app include an English to Hindi translator, ability to type English sentences with voice and a host of other high-end options.

Hindi Voice Typing Keyboard – Speech to text

The app comes with a host of features making it one of the top options for typing in Hindi without the need to use any sort of vernacular keyboard on your Android. The built-in speech recognizer has been observed to offer you excellent functionality by turning speech into text rather quickly enough.

One of the prime features on the app that we found truly inspiring is that it provides you with a traditional keyboard typing option as well if you want to revert to the old method of typing. The app is completely free without any need to go with in-app purchase options. The app has been designed to work with both Hindi and English voice typing.

Azhagi Android App

This is one of the most unique apps for speech to text conversion on your Android and provides you access to a wonderful experience in multiple languages. One of the perfect options for voice typing or speech recognition software, it does support more than 100 different languages.
The support for as many as 100 or even more languages is what makes it one of the most preferred options ever. Some of the languages supported on the platform include Tamil, Hindi, English, Arabic, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Sinhala, Telugu, and Urdu.

The keyboard is built upon Google Indic Keyboard which has been one of the prominent award-winning vernacular keyboards ever. While the app supports transliteration in over 100 different languages, it lets you opt for physical typing in 24 different languages.

Google Translate

Google Translate has always been one of the excellent options for an enhanced experience in terms of improved transliteration efficiency. The app has now received a new feature referred to as Transcribe that it provides you access to an enhanced voice typing performance. As of now, the application supports only up to 8 languages; more such languages will be made available in due course.

The rollout of the application has now started off already, and once it is stabilised, we can expect more options for more number of languages in the days ahead.

Dhwani Voice Typing Application

Dhwani has been one of the best voice typing applications that offer you support for a wide range of Indian vernacular languages. It provides you access to a complete collection of a wide range of options for multiple Indian languages. Some of the languages supported would include Kannada, Telugu, English, Tamil, Gujarati, Marathi and Hindi.

You would need to download the apps specifically designed for multiple languages separately. The app does not provide you access to a single app for all languages but expects you download different applications for different languages. You can pick your language-specific apps from here.

The Closing Thoughts

Well, those were just a few good options you would find rather impressive experience in opting for an easy to use voice typing efficiency. Of course, availability of a built-in solution would provide you with an enhanced experience, but with the lack of such option available, it would be inevitable to go with a few of the right choices we have outlined here.

Check out the options we have outlined here and check how effective they can be in letting you type your vernacular content rather quickly.
