Who Needs A Keyboard? Shout Your Text Messages


Shout is a new voice activated text messaging program now available in the Android Market for $2.99. Simply speak your command and text message and Shout will repeat the message back to you. For example, “Text Rob: “It seems the Hitler idea did not go over so well.” and press the “Yes” button after it repeats your message back to you and your good to go. Seems like an easy enough fix until the 2.1 voice to text rolls around.

There are a few other alternatives out there for voice to text so lets see how this one stands up to your scrutiny. Let us know what you think below!

I was trying to send the message “I’ll be home in half an hour”. I tried six or seven times, and it didn’t come close.
