Is there a possibility to make voice input with Siri shortcuts? I haven't found it. What I want to do is to create a new todo item on my todo app in my case trello, but I don't want to manually type the todo item in, but dictate it via voice. Say "trello new card: [INPUT]" and then it creates the card. Is this possible? Also to send a message it would be nice to be able to have voice input.

Yay my first Shortcuts question!

Use the Dictate Text action.

enter image description here

This action will convert words you speak into to text and pass that text to the next action.

Currently, there is a bit of down side: You will not be able tell Siri in one sentence "Tell [Shortcut Trigger], Apples are cool" Instead you need to do it in two parts "[Shortcut Trigger]" wait... "Apples are cool".

Warning: Make sure to pick a language or it will silently fail.

  • Also, it seems to only work with plain text. I tried to say a number in order to then input it as a duration in the Health app but it doesn’t recognize it. – bfontaine Oct 5 '18 at 19:38
  • @bfontaine Does Siri recognize it? – JBis Oct 5 '18 at 19:40

    @bfontaine I came across this too, but you can work around it by saying "five point oh" or "five point zero" and it's then recognised as a number instead of the word "five". – Duncan Awerbuck Oct 7 '18 at 14:58
  • Thanks! Just used this to create a Wunderlist shortcut to add a new item to a shared list! – agam Jan 7 at 3:46

I passed through a calculation adding 0 to the text to convert from text to a number
