Nuance Speech-to-Text Dictation on Samsung Rogue Verizon Phone Very Impressive

Voice dialing and, to a lesser extent, voice command are reasonably common in smartphones and even featurephones. Both of these features have been around for a while. However, it is only in the last few years that I’ve found them to work reasonably well. Voice dialing and voice command, while impressive, have restricted small vocabularies to deal with.

But, I’ve never seen actual speech-to-text dictation available as a commercial product for phone… until now… YOu can see Nuance’s mobile speech product taking dictation for a text messages on a Sansumg Rogue on the Verizon Wireless network. Very impressive… Especially for a $99 phone (with a physical QWERTY keyboard!).
