It was a hot and humid Sunday, and I was bored so I tried out the voice dictation tool on my new iPhone 6 Plus on Facebook:
"I am typing this Facebook status update with my voice. I am very impressed by the voice dictation tool of my iPhone 6+. CB ho!"
I meant to say "Sibeh Ho!". I guess Siri still doesn't do Hokkien.
Then I tried the Chinese voice dictation:
"你看，我可以用iPhone的语音听写来写这句话。我很喜欢看 #夜市人生。Linda Feng是一个大坏蛋。"
Oi, I meant 金大风 leh.
In the process, I learned that you can add punctuation by saying 句号 (jù hào) for period, 逗号 (dòu hào) for comma, and 问号 (wènhào) for question mark. And did you know that the Chinese term for hashtag is 井号 (jǐng hào)? I thought it was cool that the word 井 looks like # too.
In other news, I serenaded my wife when we drove home from the in-laws, and sang Sixteen Going on Seventeen, from The Sound of Music, to her, to the amusement of my kids.
That's something I had to do myself, with my own voice, no Siri could help me with that. The Wife seemed to like it.
