The iPhone is getting its own voice dictation software from Nuance, makers of Dragon Naturally Speaking dictation software for the desktop. The software, called Dragon Dictation, is currently free and is available in the iTunes App Store.
The software works by having the user press the record button on the center of the screen, speak into the microphone what they want to say, and the software spits out what you said visually on the screen with options to send that message by email or SMS text message or to copy what was said to the iPhone’s clipboard for pasting in another application (like Notes). In my use of the software, it works pretty accurately and will provide an easy way for users who do not want to type on the iPhone’s on-screen keyboard to dictate and have automatic transcription.
