Siri-like Dictation Features Coming to Mountain Lion? – TFTS

Windows users have access to speech recognition for many release versions. But it never seemed to have really taken off on the Windows desktop. 

Will the Mac now get a Siri version included with the new mountain lion OS, and will  this revolutionize speech recognition on the desktop?

Safari File Suggests Siri Is Coming to Macs in the Near Future, Sort Of

Apple’s Siri virtual assistant is going to play a major part in current and especially future iOS devices, but the company appears to also be interested to include certain Siri features in its future OS X versions.


Siri is currently an iPhone 4S exclusive feature, although other iOS devices can unofficially run Siri. In a surprising move, Apple did not offer Siri support to new iPad buyers, although a Dictation feature is present on the 2012 iPad, which seems to suggest that Siri could soon be available on the tablet.

A recent report revealed that Siri will be enabled on the current iPad once iOS 6 is launched and claimed that developers will have access to Siri APIs in the near future. Siri is also rumored to be preloaded on the company’s first television sets, although these devices are yet to be confirmed.

More interestingly, a full-fledged Siri client could be available on OS X devices at some point in the future. Meanwhile, we’ll just have to make do with the Dictation feature – currently available on the iPhone 4S and iPad 3 – that’s reportedly coming to OS X Mountain Lion computers. According to 9to5Mac, Siri-like Dictation features have been discovered in OS X Mountain Lion:

According to a resources file inside of the latest build of Safari in the newest seed of the upcoming OS X Mountain Lion, Dictation might be making its way to Macs next. Since Macs do not sport virtual keyboards or physical keyboards with a microphone-labled key, users (by default) will apparently need to simultaneously click both command keys to start voice input.

However, other Dictation references have not been found in current Mountain Lion beta versions and the feature itself is non functional at this point. OS X Mountain Lion and iOS 6 are going to be the main stars of WWDC 2012, maybe right alongside new MacBook Pros, so in case voice-based features are coming to Macs we may hear more details about them straight from Apple in a few weeks from now.
