Report: Nuance speech-to-text now in testing in iOS 5

updated 10:40 pm EDT, Fri September 2, 2011

May not appear with initial iOS 5 release

Apple is testing its system-wide integration of Nuance speech-to-text technology in iOS 5, says 9to5Mac, citing unnamed Apple employees. Leaked and obscured pictures show a microphone icon next to the spacebar and the technology in use with the Messages app. Although the feature is in what was described as "early beta testing," there's no assurance that the feature will appear in the initial release of of iOS, which is expected to be released sometime this fall.

Apple's licensing of Nuance technology will be used to augment the company's purchase of Siri voice-command technology into a system-wide "iOS Assistant" that will allow users to use voice commands and dictation system-wide, beyond iOS's current ability to use voice commands to make calls. Apple purchased Siri outright in April of last year. [via 9to5]
