iOS 7 comes with a feature called Siri Dictation which allows users to speak into the device and have their spoken words typed automatically for them. This can be activated by tapping on the microphone button that appears on the keyboard whenever you’re typing. Although it’s a great feature, Siri Dication in iOS 8 comes with additional 24 new languages that are not in iOS 7 along with the default English language.
One of the most useful features of iOS 7 is the ability to speak to your device and have the text automatically typed for you without doing it manually. The feature can be enabled by tapping on the microphone button at the bottom of the keyboard, right next to the ‘space’ button. However, when you enable the dictation mode, you will be prevented from typing as the device will be listening to your words and will type it automatically once your finished.
