Having fun with the dictation feature on the new iPad
Found some tongue twisters .

The first in each twister is the correct twister, followed by the dictated version.

If stewed shoes shoes, should stew cheese the shoes and shoes?

I'm only plucking pheasant's 
house the pheasant plucker's late.

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
If a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could,
And chuck as much wood as a woodchuck would
If a woodchuck could chuck wood.

If a wood chuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as she could,
And check as much wood as a wood chuck wood
If a woodchuck could chuck wood.



I cannot bear to see a bear
Bear down upon a hare.
When bare of hair he strips the hare,
Right there I cry, "Forbear!"

Right there I cried," forebear!"

Pretty Kitty Creighton had a cotton batten cat.
The cotton batten cat was bitten by a rat.
The kitten that was bitten had a button for an eye,
And biting off the button made the cotton batten fly.

Christie cutie Crayton had a cotton bat cat.
The cotton fat cat was bitten by a rat.
The kitten that was bitten had a button for an eye,
And biding off the button made a cotton bat fly.

In the dictated part, to get the commas, quotation marks and new paragraphs, just say "quotation mars" or " new paragraph" for example.

Also in the above, this s as much on me as a speaker, as I've always had some speech problems. But that's okay because some are still funny.

Seriously, the feature handled words like "inexplicably" pretty well. Also differentiated between "wood" and "would" in context as I really don't pronounce them differently.

I will use this.

Dave.

I'm impressed!

I do not speak clearly and I talk to fast! South Jersey style where I grew up.

I think this would be a good exercise for me to improve my speaking clearly.

I just read yesterday about how politicians adjust their speech when going from the north U.S. to the Southern states. i.e. W would drop "ing" and just us "n". "doing" became "doin'" and so forth. I know it is over simplifying, I'm just saying what I read.

I've been know to utter, "Where you gone? [going] Jeet yet? [Did you eat yet?] Sup? [what's up?]

Anyway, I'm going to try all those later Dave. Thanks.

From what I've read ambient noise, clarity of dictation, and internet connection speed all affect the accuracy.

Don't know if my track record of purchases, or the Apple Care pushed it forward, but something changed it ! maybe they looked me up and found I was a stockholder? wink
I went for the 32Gb 4G black iPad. maybe they're not selling as many of those as the WiFi only or the smaller 4G.

Kate & Dave - have you used yours as a bed warmer yet ? laugh

I don't notice it being very warm. I have noticed it being warm, bu I have my cover folded along the back so that insulates it.
