Is talking better than writing? Would you rather talk than type?
If you are like most people, talking is easier than typing.
Here’s how the numbers break down:
The average person speaks somewhere between 125 and 150 words per minute. And that same average person types between 38 and 40 words per minute. However, professional typists type a lot faster — on average between 65 and 75 WPM.
So, if you are not a professional typist and talking is better and faster for you, there is a cool service we offer that falls in with this idea.
All smartphones come with a voice memo app. If you’ve never used one before you simply can click on the app and speak directly to your phone and everything is recorded. We figured out that people would rather just talk about the things that need to be done rather than typing them into lists. Here are some ways to use the voice memo.
Make Audio Notes for the following:
- To-do lists
- Appointment reminders
- Meeting summaries
- Presentation materials
- Project instructions
- Business strategies
Now that you have a list of audio notes here’s how you can implement all of the actions needed for your thoughts.
Click Assistants Administrative Support Team offers the service of taking your audio notes and transcribing them into deliverables. If you have audio notes, you can email the audio file to us or drag it into our project management system. When we receive the audio file, your assistant listens to the recording and complete the tasks that have been outlined in the recording.
Having the ability to talk and record all of your activities simply is so much more efficient than having to type or write down everything that needs to be done or are capturing notes from meetings.
Best practice Send several separate audio notes rather than one long recording. Instead of sending a recording that has several different thoughts or projects it is better to send individual recordings for each project or list of tasks. This way we can track and respond faster to each recording since topic organizes them.
How to end your day: We have found that the clients we work with well start their audio recordings and talk through everything that needs to be captured from the day’s work including:
- to do’s
- Items they didn’t get to and need to push to a later date
- upcoming events
- meeting notes
- people to call
- follow up items
We take in all the information you send us, and as we work on the tasks and projects, we compile a customized summary and communicate back to you by your preferred method.
Our mission at Click Assistants: We eliminate the distractions, so you can spend more time on what is important.
Now that you know we have this kind of service – do you also think that talking is better than writing?
