Reports that voice recognition will be a huge component in the next major iOS update have been buoyed lately by rumors that Apple was exploring a significant licensing deal with Nuance, a company renowned for their voice recognition engine.

To that end, Jan-Michael Cart put together this interesting concept video depicting how system wide voice recognition in iOS 5 might work. The gist is that users would be able to have voice messages transcribed by tapping and holding a text field, thereby activating the voice recognition system.

Pretty cool.

Of course, Google’s Android OS already has their own offering and it’s not too shabby, to say the least. Still, it’s a separate download from the Android Marketplace. We imagine that Apple will have some nifty voice recognition features built right into iOS 5 that will also be accessible to third party developers. We’ll find out soon enough on June 6 when WWDC gets underway in San Francisco.
