rumors of Apple adding Retina Displays to its next crop of Mac computers, there are other rumors that say Apple also may be adding Siri like voice input to Macs as well.
As you can see in the opening chart, via 9to5Mac, there does seem to be reference to it in recent betas of OS X Mountain Lion, but apart from the one listed above, no other references have been found.
Of course, that doesn't mean that Siri like voice dictation won't be coming a Mac near you soon. Apple, thanks to Steve Jobs, is rather famous for saving surprises for the end of its presentations, and the next, "... just one more thing" like moment could be as early as June 11, the next date for Apple's annual World Wide Developers Cconference.
Some people don't think that voice dictation is really all that important, and especially on desktops, but I tend to disagree. Yes, voice dictation isn't exactly a perfect science yet, not even with Siri, but there are definite benefits to be had. For one thing, I'm not even supposed to be typing this post, as I now have a wrist injury due to too much typing and boy, oh boy, could I ever use Siri like dictation right now since typing is still rather painful to say the least. Voice dictation is one way of possibly alleviating such injury, and in some cases it could make those long boring writing chores, well, shall we say, much less of a chore.
In conclusion, Siri like voice dictation on a Mac could not only be a time and a health saver, but quite frankly, it's rather cool and downright fun, at least I think so anyway. It's faster and yes, in some cases, it's even more accurate at times than plain old-regular typing which never did really feel all that natural if you ask me, so bring it on Apple and add Siri like dictation to the Mac, because the sooner, the better I say.
And that's my 2 cents 4 this Thursday, May 24, 2012
