Will This Be The Way You Interact With iOS 5’s New Voice Recognition Capabilities?



The convention of rumor has it that the next major version of iOS 5 will boast some truly spiffy, industry-changing voice recognition and text-to-speech capabilities, courtesy of a broad partnership with Nuance… and if those rumors are true, than this could just be what it will look like.

Jan-Michael Cart’s conceptual video shows just how voice recognition could work under iOS 5. Just push down the home button on the iOS Home Screen to launch apps, perform searches and initiate other functionality. To enter specific text, just hold your finger down on the text-input window, or tap a mic icon to dictate.

Is this the implementation of iOS voice recognition technology Apple will choose? It certainly seems like the sort of simple, elegant interface that Apple favors with iOS. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if, when iOS 5 is released, this concept didn’t turn out to be closer to the mark than anyone might have expected.
