What Free Speech-to-Text Programs Are Available Online?

Media Freeware offers a free speech-to-text program, while Google's Chrome browser features a built-in speech-to-text option. As of 2015, Chrome's built-in functionality remains limited to browser commands and translations, though it does support free extensions such as Voice Note II and Voice Recognition that extend functionality to all text boxes.

Another option for free voice-to-text conversion, TalkTyper gives users an online text box to work inside, from which they can copy and paste to an external word processing program as needed. NCH Software offers the transcription-based Express Scribe Free program, which translates voice to text and gives users the option of stopping and restarting the audio with a keyboard hotkey or foot pedal.
