Come this summer, Apple’s mobile devices won’t be the only products in its lineup to take advantage of the company’s Dictation technology. According to a resources file extracted from Safari in the latest seed of OS X Mountain Lion, the function is reportedly on its way to a Mac near you. Your essay on The Grapes of Wrath is about to get a lot easier to “type.”
If you’re unfamiliar with Dictation, it offers an easy and effortless speak-to-text option that’s much more convenient than typing — when it works. The screenshot above shows that users will be able to access the function by pressing both command keys at the same time, which will then prompt voice input.
9to5 Mac says Dictation in Mountain Lion is not functional in the current beta, but perhaps it will go live once a final build is released. Of course, we’ll know that answer once WWDC kicks off on June 11.
