Wryte: dictate your notes


Wryte is a speech recognition software to help you with your notes. While it doesn’t work at the OS level, Wryte is still very useful for bloggers and authors who want to automate a part of their work. The software is fresh-baked and under active development.

Wryte doesn’t require additional training and worked quite accurately with English. It supports only English and German languages at the time of writing. However, it has a huge potential and may become an excellent alternative to other paid or cryptic speech recognition programs. Wryte is written in Clojure.


  • automatic spell checking
  • punctuation via shortcuts, for a natural dictaion flow
  • edit and copy text after dictation
  • multiplatform: Linux, Windows and Mac

While speech recognition works well initially, we noticed issues after using Wryte for a few minutes – text editing gets messed up, returning to dictation mode becomes a problem and input parsing slows down. However, given the phase in which the project is, we expect these to get fixed soon.


To use Wryte on Ubuntu, download the Linux package from the Downloads section of the project (linked below). Extract and run.
