I am getting excellent results doing the following -

I use the Google Talk app to send IMs to my “other” Google identity.  Instead of typing on my Android Keyboard, i tap the microphone key and just start talking ... it works pretty much as shown in this video:

The nice thing is that you can verify as you speak that your speech is being transcribed properly.

(This shows Android 4.1 (Jellybean) while I have Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on my phone)

Later on I can go into Gmail, look for messages tagged with “chats”, and there I will find a transcript of my voice notes, with each note being timestamped.  From there I can cut and paste the notes to whereever they need to go.

Don’t know if another app might work better for the purpose, but the Google Talk works well.
