The iOS 8 beta 4 is now here and with it new features, redesigns and even new applications, but as usual, the developers and a few brave ones who already have the beta installed, have been discovering new features that we didn’t know about in the first place.
Until today the option of entering text by voice in iOS consists of talking to the iPhone and it sends the audio to Apple’s servers to return it as text, this implies that our device has to be connected to the data network to send and receive the information, so if you do not have a connection or it is not stable, the operation will not be ideal, likewise, the transcription is done with whole sentences, where if the audio is not detected correctly, there may be many errors that we will have to correct manually.
Now in the iOS 8 beta 4, the speech recognition in real time is incorporated, in the same way as Siri operates nowadays, where at the moment of speaking we will see almost immediately how it is converted into text , and thus realize possible errors at the moment. The function still requires a data connection but this time the reception of the audio and the sending of text are done at the same time, not like today when you need to finish one to start the other.
