Pfaeffikon, Switzerland – Power App today is pleased to introduce Speech2SMS 1.0 for iOS, their new app that allows users to create and send SMS messages by speaking into their iOS device. Following a brief period of calibration, during which it accounts for ambient noise levels, the app is ready to take dictation. It employs the OpenEars open-source iOS library for English language speech recognition, and the CMU Pocketsphinx and CMU Flite libraries from Carnegie Mellon University. Designed for no-hands text input when use of the virtual keyboard is inconvenient or impossible, users are advised to speak slowly and clearly for best results.
