    67?! Nice try at distracting me from getting up and gong to my UPS hub to pick up my new toy.

    I was actually using Polymail just for this feature. Now I might be tempted to go back to Mail since they have actually made it better.

    This is something we should have seen in iOS 9. I'd rather not have to open up Safari to watch a YouTube video.

    Totally! Saves a whole lot of time if you only need to say one or two words in another language and then come back to English!

    Guess what, the keyboard itself successfully interprets multiple language text input and reacts accordingly. It does a neat job.

    But the keyboard has a dictation key.

    Today I tried to dictate in multiple langues without switching the keyboard. I started out with English, and it was fine. Then I spoke in Spanish, and it still thought it was hearing English and interpreted my speech as English (of course, with gibberish as a result). Why couldn’t it figure out that it was Spanish and switch to Spanish transcription automatically?

    So technically, this feature will be more completely implemented when iOS can hear another language, successfully identify the language being spoken, and accept dictation and do text-to-speech for that language seamlessly.

    I don’t expect them to handle 15 or 20 languages in the beginning, but at least implement handling for the basic and most-oft used languages, like English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, and—hey—Greek would be super cool.
