Google has a good speech recognition engine for different languages (English, Russian, etc.) Recognition errors/inaccuracies are minimal. Sometimes, instead of manually typing the text, I would like to simply dictate it to a program, and it is converted to text on the fly.

The "OK Google" voice search allows to recognize and convert to text a speech of a size of 1 sentence only (roughly). After that searching starts.

Is there a program/application (for Windows) or website (that uses Google speech recognition engine or some good alternative) to input fairly large amounts of text (more than default Google voice search allows). Sometimes it is very necessary. Manual typing sometimes is not suitable or simply tedious due to laziness. It would be easier to dictate everything.

It is for private use only and, as pointed out, not necessarily bound to the Google engine – as long as quality fits. The reason why I give Google example because quality of their services is quite good and at the same time it is free. I was looking for that kind of software or site offering such services for free.

Specifically, I am interested in Russian voice-to-text conversion tool/website (but Google seem to have good engine for most languages).

My OS: Windows 10 x64.
