  1. I have a video on my iPhone I made & would like to know how to put the words on it into text so I can email it?
    I've already tried the program built into Vista & W7 but no luck yet. Any ideas/suggestions? :)

    Clarification; I want to put the words in the video into text so I can copy/paste the text ONLY into an email. Sorry if I wasn't clear.

    What you are looking for is speech recognition. I however have zero experience with such.

    Thank you. I'll check that out & re try the one on my pc & laptop. I may just have to do it by hand. :)

    @cliffordcooley , on my iPhone I noticed I have a "Message" app, would it be possible to send the video to a recipient via that app?

    I couldn't say for sure, I've little experience with iPhones. I know you can attach photos to messages, but I'm not sure about vids.

    Yes, you can attach a video clip to your message. When you press the camera icon next to the box where you type in your text, it'll say Take Photo or Video, it'll start in photo mode, so change to video and begin recording. Then attach clip to your msg. Don't know about later version of iPhone or if msg is sent between iPhones, but from my iPhone 4 to S4, the video is sent as a 320x240 3gp file. Quality isn't great.
