text-speech & speech-text

According to PatentlyApple, Apple has filed a new patent for bringing text-to-speech and speech-to-text to the iPhone. This would be in a version of iOS5. Not word yet on whether this would be available on the next generation iPhone, possibly being released as the iPhone 4S.

This feature could be quite useful in a noisy environment, or a very quiet one when it would be advantageous to just read a message instead of hearing a voice message!
