What is Speech to Text (STT)?

Speech-to-text, often abbreviated as STT, is a type of software that effectively takes audio content and transcribes it into written words in a word processor or other display destination. This type of speech recognition software is extremely valuable to anyone who needs to generate a lot of written content without a lot of manual typing. It is also useful for people with disabilities that make it difficult for them to use a keyboard.

Speech-to-text software may also be known as voice recognition software.
