  1. it just doesnt work the same way as the amazing Evernote implementation. Functionality is way reduced and doesnt come close. A real shame, it was a fabulous feature, just wish I didnt need itnow in my life, but I do. C'est la vie - but hopefully someone up high will notice this and can make the decision to reinstate it. i wonderif it was a licensing or cost saving issue... false economy thinking that the google or samsung versions can even come close - surely they tested the alternatives?
  2. When I first tried Evernote 4 or 5 years ago i stumbled across this function, dictated somenotes, then used the AMAZING audio-linked-to-the-text acapability to listen to what i said and correct the text - and I believe that Evernote ALSO learned what I was saying by this! BUT - i didn't need it, or Evernote back then - so that was th end of that, a couple of voicenotes, which to this day stay in my free account. NOW - I DO need it - Since then I now have a disability, and being able to make voice notes, dictate, speak for an hour... pause to think anytime, not have to use my hands to constantly restart the google voice feature - AND then, Oh my GOODNESS - have the audio version linked to the text, that I can listen back to anytime - (not the whole recording to find my place), but JUST THE WORD OR SENTENCE that didn't auto dictate properly, correct by listening to what i was saying, and teach Evernote my voice - what a godsend that would be for me right now in my life. I recently re-started using Evernote, and quickly relaised it wasnt there anymore. Tried the google and samsing implementations - Urggh! - they are only really designed for short commands to the phone - and then I thought - I bet this is a premium option! But no - what a total shame. I would dearly love this option back, there are many of us that REALLY need it - and would HAPPILY pay for the option, whether premium or as an add-on - user pays basis. Luckily I did not upgrade first only to find it wasnt there and then have to risk a fight getting a refund. For now, without that AMAZINGLY userful functionality, I have to try and find something else that really lets me work with my voice that way, wherever I am, home or out. Still struggling to find one.... Why oh why... Please talk to the techs and get this bacK!...please!!!! Or - doesanyone know of an alternate that does work this way? What other options are there? Thanks for listening at least,
  3. ok - thanks for that - so I guess it WOULD be a great feature, and probably really simple for the coders to implement? And if they really need a commercial incentive to do it - make it a premum option? Following from that then - I could presumably, if I follow the logic of #csihlling anser (thanks) - I could make the original file-note in an email client, then send it to Evernote. This would give me an additional step, but presumably - 2 dates in 2 different places that SHOULD correlate - I don't know if the sent date can be faked or edited in Gmail or outlook, - but if is securely fixed, I get my legally reliable note date which can be used as proof? Plus a backup. Win win... i think? And I do get that in software, ANYTHING is ultimately fakeable, but the burden should hopefully be so large (hack into Google's servers!) as to make it acceptible in 99.999% of cases where it might be presented as evidence. thanks for the help, Ape
  4. Newbie here, I did try seraching but couldnt find specifics, somany references to adding dates and timestamps, so perhaps Evernote already doers this, could someone please clarify for me. Or perhaps it's included in the preumium service offering? Does Evernote have a way to include, automatically and without user ability to edit - the ORIGINAL timestamp of when a note was created? This being able to prove should evidence be required, as to when exactly a ntoe was taken or recorded. In the case of adding file-notes about incidents and injuries etc - i.e to answer the question "When did you first know about auch and such and what actions did you take" - we use filenotes like this alot at work and I wondered if Evernote could do this already? Appologies if the info is already here, but as I say I couldnt find a definitive answer to this specific question. I am considering upgrading, but REALLY want to original voice-note feature, where you got the recording, and the text together, and linked, so you could edit words andlisten back to exactly what you said to correct spelling. That doesn't exist anymore in that way... ;(
