I'm trying to ascertain if, and when, Apple is planning on supporting the Web Speech API<ttps://dvcs.w3.org/hg/speech-api/raw-file/tip/speechapi.html#tts-section>.  This email from Chris that was attached to this post<https://lists.webkit.org/pipermail/webkit-dev/2013-January/023309.html> earlier in the year, is the ONLY thing I can find on the web regarding Apple's support of the speech API, which is very surprising to me.  Does anyone have any knowledge of whether or not Apple is planning to support this spec for Safari, specifically on mobile, and if so, when?  Now that this is a W3C spec, and Chrome has added support for it, Apple is seriously missing the boat on this.  As a developer of mobile optimized sites for large retail brands, we see speech to text as a game changer for the mobile web.  Very interested to know if this is even on Apple's radar…and if not, why not?

Thanks for any and all feed back on this topic.
