Windows Phone 8 to feature Voice Compose and Read Aloud for email


A Microsoft intern has revealed another Windows Phone 8 ‘Apollo’ feature.

A while ago Molly Wood complained she could not compose an email just by voice recognition.  It seems she would not have the same problem in Apollo, if a resume by a Microsoft Intern can be believed (link removed at request).

In the CV he writes he developed the Voice Compose (Speech to Text) and Read Aloud (Text to Speech) for native email clients.

This is interestingly consistent with an earlier leaked from an unwiped whiteboard which mentions Voice Typing.

Hopefully we will see more features trickle out over the next few months.
