Here's what you need to know about the free plans. The features available in the paid plans will be explained later.
How to use Voice In

Right-click on the icon you have pinned (pinned) to the menu. Then select "Options" and click on it.

First, select "Japanese" in the "Select your dictation language & dialect" section to enable voice input in Japanese.
If for some reason you are receiving voice input in English, please change the setting in this section.
Sound effect settings
Sound effects" can be set. Optional.
- None (no sound effect)
- Activated (sound when activated)
- Deactivated (sound when deactivating)

I don't want sound effects, so I set None.
How to input voice data with Voice In
There are two activation methods for voice input with Voice In.
- Simultaneously press "Alt + L" on the keyboard
- Click on the microphone icon
Either method can be used to start the program. When activated, the icon changes color to red.
This is the state in which Voice In is in active mode.
When the icon turns red and you speak into the microphone, the word can be entered as a sentence.
To exit voice input, click the icon again. The color of the icon will change from red to gray.
This state means that Voice In is turned off.
Available sites and supported languages for Voice In
Voice In is available in more than 50 languages. Of course, Japanese is also supported.
Another key feature is the ability to use voice input on a variety of sites. Here are some examples. Below are the main sites available with Voice In.

I myself am currently using Voice In on my WordPress site to write this article.
You can use Voice In on any website. It is very easy to use voice input.
Features of the "Voice In Plus" paid plan
Voice In is fully usable even with a free plan.
However, if you upgrade to a paid plan (Voice In Plus), more features are available.
So, here are the features available only for Plus.
Custom Voice Commands
In paid plans,Custom voice commandscan be created.
When you say a certain phrase in the voice input, you can automatically input specific words, which is very useful when entering proper nouns such as product names, service names, and people's names.
For example, you can set up your own voice commands such that when you say "maru", it will input ". or "," when you say "ten" or "ten" for example.
It would greatly increase the efficiency of the writing process.
The free version of Voice In can be used on many websites. However, some sites are not available. Restrictions
Upgrading to the paid version will release Advanced Mode. The result,Unlimited voice input on any website.
I understand that Advanced Mode allows voice input on Notion, Hubspot, Twitter, Slack, Teladoc, Salesforce, Zoho, Zendesk, or any site.
Dictate Across Multiple Tabs
The free version of Voice In is a bit difficult to use. It is.Switching to another tab forces the voice input to stopI know, right? This is a little difficult to use.
Therefore, when you switch to another tab, you have to start Voice In again manually. It is quite a hassle, isn't it?
If you upgrade to the paid version,Switching to another tab will not interrupt voice input.So you can do voice input while switching freely to other tabs.
Switching between tabs, searching, and browsing other pages, uninterrupted voice input greatly increases writing speed and efficiency.
In some cases, you may encounter websites where Voice In does not work. A useful feature in such cases is theDictation Box.It is.
You can display a text box on the page and transcribe sentences in the box by voice input.
The Dictation Box opens a text box on the page, so all you have to do is talk to that text box. It's easy to use!
Once the voice input is complete, press "Copy" to copy the text and paste it at will.
If you upgrade to the paid version, you can switch languages more easily than with the free version.
Buttons and keyboard shortcuts make it easy to switch to other languages, which is very convenient when using multiple languages.

It's just...There is no need to use the paid version out of the blue.Please use the free version first. Frankly, free is good enough to use▼.
Which plan do you recommend?
If you are thinking of using it just for a month, try Monthly.
And if you have decided to try the free version and use it for a year from the beginning, choose Yearly.
The rates are completely different for monthly and yearly payments. If you decide from the beginning to use the service for the long term, we recommend that you choose Yearly. It is more economical.
Lifetime is not expensive? Actually...
If you are going to use it for at least 2 years or more,We recommend the purchase of Lifetime, which is a buy-out.
Poof, it is over $10,000. It looks quite expensive. Or rather, it is expensive.
However, once you pay once, you will not incur any costs in the future, so you can continue to use it after 3, 5, or 10 years at no additional cost. It is the best value for the long term.
All plans just have different ways to pay the fees,All available functions are the same.
No matter which plan you choose, you get all the features of Voice In Plus. If, like me, you don't want to pay a set monthly fee, I prefer Lifetime, which you get after paying only once.
I am also planning to purchase Lifetime after writing this article. I will add more to this page after the purchase.
