You can either push a microphone button on the keyboard to dictate your voice or you can also use Siri to create and send texts for you.
Kaber, that's the latest and greatest Apple device! Of Course, the iPhone 5 has the talk to text feature. To enable this feature, you just need to access the home screen:
> tap Messages
> tap option to compose Message
> Tap your contact
> Tap the field to enter the body of your message
> On your keyboard, you will see an icon that resembles a microphone right next to the space bar. When you tap that microphone icon, the voice option will enable on.
I trust that these steps will work for you. ^LH
