    Pros: 

    It works very well!

    Cons: 

    Copying text not allowed, some languages partially supported.

    I speak English, Greek and German. In English and German I can enjoy fantastic auto punctuation that actually makes me wonder why it isn't built into Google keyboard's voice recognition (the tech is clearly there). That amazing feature is unfortunately not available in Greek. my big issue with this is that I cannot copy the text in order to paste it into another app. I understand that it is meant to transcribe speech live but what's the harm in adding the ability to copy text?

    Anna Filou has used this product for one week.

Love this application if technology, it's always . nice seeing fun, shiny new things, but when technology can be utilised to help give someone a better quality of life, that's when it is special
good work 👍
I am not deaf, but I can well understand what it is like to be isolated from the world. Using speech recognition in this way is really touching. good job!
