If you tap on the microphone Keep will immediately open a new note and wait for you to start talking.
Assuming you talk clearly at a normal speed Keep will transcribe your words pretty much in real time - and it is as good a quality voice to text system as we've ever used. The resulting note allows you to see (and edit) the text and to play back the original audio.
If you open one of these notes in the web view you get the additional option of saving the audio file - so if for example you wanted to record an interview you could record and transcribe everything, and download the audio for further editing.
- Marking work and leaving comments - record and transcribe them and then drop the text wherever it is going to be needed. Often with audio feedback the student may want to be able to read rather than listen (yes, we know it may be better to have to listen...).
- Recording an interview or podcast.
- Lecture notes.
