    Voice recognition is awful at best.

    It sucks on a good pc so I'm going to say no on the ipod.

    On the touch, or in general?
    I've been using it on my computer for years and couldn't do without it.
    Works nearly flawlessly. And beats hand/finger strain.

    Voice recognition is hardly accurate and if on the iPhone would be even worse.

    I get 99% accuracy. I guess your mileage may vary.

    It depends massively on your accent. Unfortunately, voice recognition doesn't work well AT ALL on anything other than *insert standard American accent here*.

    Many of them have many options for that.
    And training.
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    I really can’t understand why the great opposition to voice recognition. I am writing this by way of the built in voice recognition in Windows Vista. I have not even done any training sessions for it to recognize my voice pattern.
    As I said, I’ve used voice recognition by various companies for years and have written voluminous documents with far greater ease and efficiency than I could either by typing by hand or dictating and having it transcribed (which normally involves having to manually edit and re-transcribed).
    The Touch needs a word processor, and if it were combined with voice recognition, would have awesome capabilities usable in a myriad of circumstances.
    Regardless of other people’s poor experience with voice recognition (one might hope that an opinion would be based on actual experience), I sure would like to see it.
