A Free Speech to Text App for Chrome

I've covered speech to text and text to speech apps for Chrome before and today I want to share another one that I recently discovered. Online Dictation is a free site that will transcribe your speech for you. To use the site just visit it, click on the microphone icon, and start talking. If the transcription inserts the wrong word (for example it inserted "number" instead of "mumble" when I tried it) just click on that word to replace it. You can copy the transcript and paste it anywhere you like.

 
Applications for Education
This could be a good resource for students who, for a variety of reasons, might need assistance generating text documents on a computer.
