Talkatoo MobileMic on iOS

Use your iOS device (iPhone, iPad, or iPod) as a microphone so you can dictate wirelessly at any computer where Talkatoo software is installed.

How does it work?  

Download the Talkatoo app from the App Store, which allows you to connect to a computer by scanning a QR code generated by Talkatoo, dictate through your phone, and have the text appear on the computer in real time.   

What is a QR code?

A QR code is a common type of barcode that contains text, links and other information.  It is readable by a smartphone's camera as a quick way to share data, and follow links. 

Example of a QR code

You can have multiple computers saved, so once you have connected to a computer, you can simply select it again, instead of having to rescan the QR code each time.  You can even give these computers friendly names so they're easier to remember.  Instead of DESKTOP-2M3JF9P and DESKTOP-9OD4H38, you can rename them to  Office, or Treatment Room 1. 


Instead of having to carry a microphone around to each station, you can use the phone you are probably already carrying around in your pocket.  

In addition, it streamlines using Talkatoo from thin clients, other server based installs where IT intervention was previously required, or any other remote setup.  Simply install Talkatoo in the same place as you will be doing your notes, and access it like you normally would.

If you haven't already, please install Talkatoo on your computer.

  5. On your computer: Place your cursor where you want the text to appear, just like a normal dictation
  6. On your phone:  Press Start Dictation and you're ready to start speaking.

You will also see the text show up on the device screen as you speak.
