Air Dictate app brings Siri’s voice control to Macs, makes you feel just a little more important
Well, this was probably inevitable. Given that we’ve already seen Siri respond to custom commands, replace your remote and adjust the temperature in your house, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that someone, somewhere has figured out how to make her control Macs. That’s what’s going on with Air Dictate by Avatron, a new app that allows you to dictate memos and other Very Important Business so that it appears in your text editor, without you having to type it yourself. Once you download the $1 app, you’ll need to visit Avatron’s website, download the Air Dictate Receiver software for your Mac and make sure the two devices are connected to the same WiFi network. So far as we can tell, it should work with any application that accepts text input, though for now it’s only compatible with Macs and the iPhone 4S (sorry, jailbreakers).
