Dictating to Your Mac

Here’s a neat trick that I am sure many of you have figured out, but that I just discovered Friday night. If you have TouchPad on your iOS device (probably other apps allow this as well) you can use the dictation key in iOS to dictate text into your Mac.

If that sounds really easy, that’s because it is. I use this now when I am trying to type things out on our “media center” Mac mini that is hooked up to a TV without a keyboard — works surprisingly well. I for one am pretty happy with this little trick.
