What is the audio format used to capture dictation on the new iPad that is sent to Apple servers for transcription?


iPad, iOS 5.1

    I don't know at Apple has ever said.  Just out of curiosity, since you can't access that audio file, why do you need to know?

    Hi Meg,

     

    I don't have an iPad, but I am writing about the feature. If I had one, I wouldn't need to post this item. I would just sniff the network and review the transmission sent to Apple.

     

    I am writing about the feature in a story and I am assuming the audio content has to be captured in some file format to be delivered over the web.

    As I said, Apple hasn't, to the best of my knowledge, released that kind of information about how the speech-to-text works. You will probably find more by doing an internet search. Speculation about Apple products is prohibited on these forums.
