Voice-to-text is a type of speech recognition program that converts spoken to written language.

Voice-to-text was originally developed as an assistive technology for the hearing impaired. Its applications were limited primarily because older voice-to-text programs had to be trained to recognize a specific person's speech before attaining an acceptable level of accuracy.

Newer programs can decipher the average person's speech without training, opening up possibilities for new applications of the technology, including interactive cell phone functions, such as voice-to-text message delivery and voice-to-text search, as well as conversion of audio content such as podcasts.
