Nuance voice recognition text is featured in a number of products. It's rather well known for not begin all that accurate at times. Siri on iOS devices is powered by Nuance and its voice recognition engine is also used in voice systems inside some cars.

 

On the Toq, voice input is limited to only nine seconds at a time. That should be plenty of time to compose a message. Whether messages made with your voice are accurate remains to be seen. Toq isn't available as a normal retail product, it's more like a reference platform.
