Native text input microphone timeout

Post by stevenchalmers » Sun Jan 10, 2016 5:12 pm


I am creating an iOS app with a native text field that uses the microphone to enter the text. It works perfectly but the microphone mode times out too quickly for my needs. After less than a minute the microphone times out and the input reverts to the keyboard.

I have searched for any details on mobileControlSet, and all the related functions, that would allow me to affect this timeout but have yet to find anything.

Possible solution paths:

1) Is there any way to change the timer on the microphone?

2) Is there any way to fake a speech input to effectively reset the timer?

3) If I could programmatically switch the input from keyboard to microphone I would be happy to monitor a timer, switch to keyboard input and then back to the microphone input.

Thanks in advance for any input.
