If you’re like most people, you take a lot of notes — both at work and at home. And sometimes, a voice-powered note-taking app is a superior choice compared to one that requires typing on a touchscreen, using a digital stylus or jotting things down with pen and paper.

After all, a voice transcription app allows you to take notes while driving and saves you from getting the wrist fatigue that commonly happens after a day at a desk job.

Some voice transcription apps also learn your vocal tendencies and most-used words to correct misheard words on the fly, preventing you from having to go back and make edits.

If you often feel there’s not enough time in the day to get everything done and know writing takes a lot of time, voice transcription apps have clear advantages.

Now that you know why voice transcription apps are worthwhile, let’s look at three that are superb for boosting on-the-job efficiency, and three that are ideal for your personal life.

1. Tetra

If you hate taking notes during a call and frantically typing while trying to hang onto every word a person utters, an artificial intelligence-powered app called Tetra could help. It works with an iOS-compatible dialer tool and uses intelligent language recognition to understand what you say, then converts words into text documents and sends them to you, sometimes only minutes after a call.
