Voice to text is far from new technology. The ability to speak into your phone and tell it to call a specific person has been around for quite sometime. Unfortunately, that’s really been about all you could do till now. With recent improvements to everyone’s favorite iDevice, we found ourselves able to launch/control other features of the phone but even that was just a marginal improvement. Taking the next step in voice-to-text evolution, vlingo corporation offer more than just s sonorous name in their latest update of Vlingo, they offer email and SMS paste, too! Feel free to discuss this review of Vlingo in our forums.
Voice Dialing is one of the more useful features missing from the iPhone. Users therefore have been turning to the App Store for a voice dialing app that is both reasonably priced and accurate at the same time. Perhaps one of the most popular ones at the moment is Say Who, a free app that works reasonably well. The simple interface works well especially when you are trying to make a call while driving. Once the app starts, you can press down anywhere on the screen and say your contact’s name. Say Who will accept first and/or last names, nicknames as well as digits of the contact. When a contact is found, the default setting of AutoDial will automatically connect you to the first of the results found in about 3 seconds. Turning AutoDial off will allow you to choose which of the returned contacts you want to dial.
