So many have come to My Stories Matter to record or help record their Mom’s, Dad’s or grandparent’s life story. When Lori joined My Stories Matter, she asked “My mother is 93 and has arthritis in her fingers. Do you have a speak to text feature?”

We knew we needed to have a solution. With that said, we are pleased to introduce speech-to-text - making it easier and quicker for anyone to capture a life story by talking instead of having to type.
