Does anyone know where I can purchase such an IPhone application? It seems like this would be a very popular and useful application.

Dragon Dictation will allow you to speak into the iPhone, and will transcribe what you say.  You can then copy the transcription into a text, an email, or whatever else you want.  Link is here:

http://www.dragonmobileapps.com/apple/dictation.html    I use it all the time, and it does an excellent job (though of course it works a lot better if the ambient noise is low.)

To go the other way, synthesizing speech from text, people seem to like "Speak It!"  I haven't tried it myself, but it's highly rated and appears to do exactly what you want.  http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/speak-it-text-to-speech/id308629295?mt=8

I have done to the URL hyperlink to read more about Dragon Dictation mobile, http://www.dragonmobileapps.com/apple/dictation.html.

However, I don't see any prices mentioned.

How much does this IPhone application cost to install on my IPhone 4?

I currently don't have my IPhone 4 with me, so I'm not able to visit the Apple App Store from my IPhone.

Please let me know how much Dragon Dictation mobile for my IPhone will cost.

You buy all iPhone Apps through Apple's App store infrastructure:
- Using iTunes, in the iTunes Store;
- On the phone, in App Store.

Dragon is free, by the way.

Doesn't make sense. I'm sure he didn't mean to select his follow up post instead of the several that were responsive to his questions.
