canyon 0 Posted December 7, 2010 Share Posted December 7, 2010 While this doesn't strictly have to do with the android client, it is an android tip that I hope others will benefit from. Warning: this tip requires Android 2.2 (Froyo) and uses the new "Voice Actions" feature included with the updated search application. Find out more: http://www.google.com/mobile/voice-actions/Warning 2: This tip only works when you have an internet connection. This is a limitation of the Android text to speech function.I have started using the Voice Actions feature to capture notes into evernote. This requires some setup but works great once you have configured everything.Preparations:Create a Contacts entry named "Evernote" and fill in it's email address field with your Evernote incoming email address. According to this article: "The address is located under Account Info in the desktop versions of Evernote, under Settings in Evernote Web, and in the Sync tab of Evernote for iPhone."Use:Now you can activate the Voice Search by clicking the Voice Search application icon, or by long pressing the search button. Then you can say Email to Evernote This is a test note.The Voice Search should interpret this as a Voice Action and create an Email, addressed to your Evernote email, with the body of "This is a test note".You can then hit send and it will email that to your evernote account. It should be in your default notebook with a title of "Mailed in note".I have found this amazingly useful to quickly capture something without taking the time to type it out. I have even used it from the Car Home application while driving.I hope everyone finds this as useful as I have. Link to comment
