So I was eating.
Obviously having greasy hands, typing a response to a text message seemed like a bad idea.
The Google app has speech-to-text recognition for searches, is there any way to bring this into SMS/email?

Maybe some sort of SBSettings Integration would make it a bit easier to implement, since it runs over any application with a present status bar?

So i can see how this MIGHT be good for emails, but why would you want to voice-to-text SMS messages?! Why wouldnt you just call the person...

this would be awesome...the storm has this i think grr....i think there was an app back in like 1.1.2 days where u could send a voice app but u had to sign up and it didnt always work well but it was cool but only capable for iphone to iphone. If a voice to text app could be made i would want it in the default sms and not a whole new sms app. Oh and also i would want it to be free lol.

This is a great idea, but would be HORRIBLE. Even if you had the most perfect enunciation and pronounciation in the world, you still would have to constantly edit a ton of the words it wrongly interpreted. It would kind of take the point of voice recognition away.
Also, think of all the slang, and everyday words that it doesn't know. Every word has to be programmed into it unless it has a learning function, which still wouldn't save you from editing lots of the text. You would need an advanced recording solution if you wanted even partially correct results too, like a high quality headset. The iPhone's mic. will just not cut it for something like this.

I like pie....
great idea but again is gonna be hard to create such app that is usable...
another idea is like the microsoft sync thing. Where it plays music and call people with the voice command.

This is a great idea, instead of texting ourselves the phone will do it for us
