According to Patently Apple, that Apple successfully submitted a patent application which allows users to translate Text-to-Speech and vice versa.
This patent will help in two different types of situations :
The first is when a smart phone user is in a loud location, such as a bar or restaurant where making voice calls is nearly impossible because of the surrounding noise. The second is when a user is in a quiet location, such as in a meeting or at church, when making a voice call would be inappropriate.
It’s highly expected to see such features on the upcoming iOS 5 which will be announced by Apple’s world event WWDC 2011, as Apple is working hard now to implement new feature on iOS 5 which will allow you to convert voicemails into text. What do you think ?
