When you're on-the-go, you may not have time to finish typing your stories. Especially if you want to share something quickly with a child's parents.

iPhones and iPads have a feature that lets you record your voice and have it translated into written text in real-time.

On an iPhone or iPad, create a new story. When the keyboard pops up, tap on the microphone key:

Begin talking and the device will translate your words into text as you talk.

In iOS7 or later, a sound wave will display as you speak.:

Click 'Done' when you're finished. Your words should appear as text in your new story. Accuracy depends on the speed, accent and language you speak. If it's not 100% correct you may to go back and edit some of the text when you've finished speaking.

It's as simple as that!
