    Some of it was even done using dictation. ;) A bit of a self challenge.

    Updated list of commands with the Numeral command. This forces the next spoken number to be a number character (5 vs five).

    I discovered this reading an AppAdvice article by Dom Espocito. It's worth watching the video if you want an introduction on how to use the commands.

    WOW, THANKS!!! What a great post TP. I didn't even think about one single one of those things when I thought of translation! What a shock and what a great find that someone, you ( I make a bow to you ) has it all sorted out for me, figured out all the things that I will need before I even knew I would need them! :D

    Well, I didn't really discover them, just played around, then put a few different sources together; but you're welcome.

    I should probably see if iOS 7 added anything new, but I'll wait a few weeks to see if blogoshpere will do the work for me.

    Yes, and installed on both devices: iPad 3 and iPhone 5.

    I'm already having problems remembering where things were in iOS 6. Well, actually I've always had problems remembering where everything was, but before the upgrade I could check to see if I was wrong or right. ;)

    Aloha thank you very much for this post. it is greatly appreciated thank you for sending you to me. I have it under my bookmarks and I'm trying to figure out how to copy and paste it into Word document and put it on my desktop that is possible. I don't have to do anything on the iPad and I've had it for over a year. there's nothing like Android which is all I ever had. but I finally have to learn this IOS operating system. this book certainly help.
