    Works perfectly for me. Now where is that user manual?:eek:

    I have a mic whenever the keyboard is open, and dictation is accurate and impressive. Is there also a way to have the app icon, and give commands?

    The sad thing is that it doesn't use Apple's servers (they currently require a 4S for authentication). Basically this is a dictation tweak made to look like native iOS 5 dictation, oh and with ads.

    As above poster said this is not the true Siri. It's a rip off

    If it's only the mic on the keyboard, it's Nuance dictation, there's nothing to
    do with Siri, the intelligent assistant.

    If it isn't even using Apple's server, I don't think there is any point for this article.

    I did not know there were other dictation apps. I've been playing with it.. there is no intelligent assistant but i'm pretty stoked to have a dictation app anyways. Sorry to be uninformed and sort of off topic, but what other dication apps do I have as options that type my speech for me even in search?

    True. I believe it uses Nuance's technology. This hack is only Siri Dication, not Siri, and it really could be named Nuance Dictation, just to be clear. It's just a Siri imitator.

    I've installed it on my i4 running 5.0 and it works great. Not 100% accurate but that could be due to my poor enunciation.

    Try this repo:

    The free "Dragon Dictation" app on iTunes app store is also powered by Nuance (made by them even) and works pretty well. Don't think it even has ads.

    Pretty silly to name this one Siri. Just attention bait from its author.

    Really good for a free tweak, I've been waiting for a dictation app that intergrated into the iOS keyboard like Siri does. I don't want to have to go into a separate app to then copy and paste stuff out.

    Yes its not actually Siri but who cares, its intergrated, it works well, it looks like Siri (I like it looking like Apple intended) and its free.

    Only improvment I could suggest is that it does the little Siri beeps when starting to record and ending. :)

    Legal action from Apple within a week, followed by immediate attention-whoring across the tech blogs... yawn.

    FWIW - I installed it and uninstalled it a few minutes later. I tried a few dictations and it didn't get one of them 100% correct. I've tried the dictation on the 4S and in my opinion, it is WAY more accurate.

    It also hung up once. oh well.

    Siri uses Nuance's servers too, so this hack simply redirects to either different servers or, more likely, an address on the same farm that isn't provisioned to Apple. Once through the front door, the processing will be identical to Siri.

    Now, they just have to get Siri itself to direct to these non-Apple hosts and we can have full blown Siri on older/other devices. This has already been demonstrated by redirecting Siri on an iP4S to an alternative voice analysis server and separately with Siri being ported onto other devices. The problem with the port to other devices is that the Apple servers rejected non-iP4S ID's. So, if Siri was altered to redirect to another host, ported to another platform and some intermediary inserted on device to handle packaging and unpackaging of the requests to and from Siri/non-Siri data structures, then you have fully functional Siri on iPhone4 or iPad2. If the alternative servers are Nuance servers used by numerous other apps, then we are all set.

    Uh, I think there's more to what Apple servers do than just the speech recognition. All of the data processing, as I understand it, is also done on Apple's servers. So, just redirecting the speech recognition to alternate servers wouldn't give you "full blown" Siri...

    I recently decided to try using the Dragon dictation software on my iPad 2 in a noisy restaurant as a test how Siri would likely perform in such a setting. Even with the host shouting out people's names a few feet away, it nailed what said almost perfectly (I think it missed one word in one sentence, out of five or six sentences). All of this was making no special effort to speak slowly or clearly.

    As a comparison, my dad tried to use the voice command feature on his "dumb" phone. It utterly failed to understand him, no matter how he tried to speak slowly and clearly, or shield the phone from the ambient noise.

    All in all, it seems that Nuance speech recognition is phenomenally good, and if this app doesn't demonstrate that quality, then maybe it isn't really powered by Nuance...
