Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Listening and responding to messages, part of iOS 5: iPhone and iPod touch Essential Training.
One of the major advantages of Siri, at least to me, is the ability it gives you…to work with text messages without having to type or even look at your phone.…You can instead ask Siri to read your coming message and then it'll be prompted…to either reply to it or you can have Siri read it again.…If you choose to reply, you can then dictate your message to Siri and then send it off.…Let's take a look at this.…So, I just received a text message.…Let's imagine that I'm driving so I can't look at my phone.…Instead, I'll press and hold my Home button or the button on my earbuds or…Bluetooth headset to invoke Siri.…
And then I can say something along the lines of,"Read my text message." …Female Speaker: "New message from Nick Brazzi:…Can you come to the office an hour early tomorrow?…You can Reply or Read It again." …Garrick: "Reply."…Female Speaker: "What do you want to say to Nick Brazzi?"…Garrick: "No, I have a dentist appointment in the morning." …Female Speaker: "I updated your message.…It says No, I have a dentist appointment in the morning. Ready to send it?"…
