Speech to Text in iOS 5

According to a recent report by 9to5Mac, it seems that iOS 5 will be bringing voice controls to a whole new level.  This feature for iOS 5 will be available for the iPhone and iPod touch but reports say that the iPad will not be able to right away.

9to5Mac says that the text-to-speech feature is pretty simple.  While messaging, the microphone icon will be placed directly next to the space bar.  Press the mic button and start to speak and obviously, words will start to appear on the screen.

Obviously, lots of smartphone’s already have this feature so why should we be excited about this?  Well this can be exciting because iOS 5 can make the voice recognition feature work a LOT better than other phones have in the past.  The new iOS will have full-integrated voice control through a app called Assistant.  Through Assistant, you can control your entire phone without even touching it and Assistant can even talk back to you!  So far, Assistant has not “popped up” in the iOS beta released this weekend so we most likely won’t be seeing in until the release of the iPhone 5.
