    Default Speech-To-Text Feature in iOS 5 Revealed


    Apple has gone to great lengths in the latest version of the iOS 5 beta to make their implementation of a speech-to-text feature nary impossible to find.

    9to5Mac released a screenshot of an updated iOS 5 standard keyboard complete with a microphone button. The speech-to-text feature is incredibly simple to use. According to 9to5Mac:

    Just click the microphone icon next to the space key and start talking. Once the key is clicked, a new microphone overlay will appear as long as you are talking. After that, the text will appear in the text field
    MacRumors points out that Apple has given various pieces of the speech-to-text interface misleading aliases.

    For example, calling the microphone button "forward delete key" and the keyboard pretends to be a "Dvorak" keyboard. - MacRumors
    However, the impossible to find nature of the feature could mean Apple is hashing out a deal with Nuance still, or wants to announce the feature this fall with the release of iOS 5.

    Although I probably wont use this while tavelling in public, coz I will look slightly retarded by looking on a display and talking to it and I bet the phone wont spell the right word everytime.

    Anyways, it seems like a great feature!

    If it's anything like Android, it will be REALLY good. Super handy when entering gps directions and sending a quick text at a red light.

    does anyone else not like having an interfering button that impedes on the size of the space button? That's why i don't use Emoji icons because the global keyboard option makes me accidentally switch when typing really fast,

    How about:

    When an opportunity to malign or to disperse opprobrium toward Apple may arise,
    one might find RICO_ most assiduously engaged, but when appears those chances for accolade or adulation,
    nary a whiff.

    The space bar still look 3 normal keys wide. Gotta be really fat-fingering to mess that up. I'm sure we will see a cydia tweak that removes it if enough people find it to be a problem.

    When Apple does something truly remarkable besides their usual expected astronomical sales figures and iOS releases based on concepts taken from the jailbreak community......then I will give them their due credit. But right now all I am reading is stock predictions, a new mouse, more iOS 5 testing, and a bunch of rumors.
