Episode 1711

Todd from Cincinnati

Todd has over 50,000 45RPM record collection from running a jukebox vending machine company back in the day. How can he organize them? Can he use optional character recognition (OCR) and his mobile phone to create a database? He could then take them online and sell them. Leo says as long as the label is easy to read, he can definitely do it. There are dozens, if not more, OCR scanning apps that can create it. He'll want an easel to hold the record still. 

What tablet has the best voice recognition?

Samsung Galaxy S5

Episode 1615

Audrey from West Lake Village, California

Audrey needs a tablet with the best voice recognition, that she can then email to her desktop for cleaning up. Her computer isn't Apple, would an iPad work? Leo says that doesn't matter. Word is about formatting, you can start with an email or even text file and dictate. Formatting doesn't matter. What Leo recommends is using a notetaking app that will automatically sync it to your desktop. Evernote is a good example. Microsoft's OneNote is a great example. All Android devices will use Google's voice recognition and that's excellent. Google Keep as well.

What's an Alternative to Evernote?

ONENOTE

Episode 1602

Ruben from Los Angeles, CA

Ruben is looking for an alternative to Evernote. They've raised prices for the Premium version. Leo says that he can still do the free version, and he may be able to get by, but it's not encrypted. Leo's alternative is Microsoft's ONENOTE. Leo says it's free on everything and he won't have to have an Office subscription to use it.  Another good one is Google Keep. Keep is interesting because it's like a bulletin board.
