Is/will the speech recognition be available on Windows Phone 8? And by speech recognition I mean converting speech to text eg. email/sms/message on any messaging app. Or maybe I missed it somehow?
Pressing and holding the Windows/Start key, and it will start up the voice commands, which can do things like "Call Chris mobile" or "Find coffee in London" or "Open calendar" or "Text Amy" or even "Note send birthday card".
Some other apps, such as messaging and email, also have a microphone icon in the application bar for dictation.
