    Default IPhone dictation service!

    Now, maybe It my lack of a posh accent or something, but I find the I-phone dictation service piss poor....

    You spend more time correcting errors than it would take to type the message in the first place!

    Does this service work for anyone I'm curious??

    I think it's calibrated using a english accent, quite possible a scouser one

    I noticed my English cousin could say anything he want's and it will work, I on the other hand can't even set my alarm without cocking it up

    Which is very good as I can barely understand what Im saying most of the time.

    The more you use it the better it gets, it learns as it goes.

    Just make sure you are talking clearly and concisely to the microphone and it needs a good broadband connection too as what it's doing is sending your voice over the web to a big central server somewhere in Europe or the US and this all takes time
