According to the video leak, the advanced speech recognition technology that Microsoft is currently working on in demonstrated. It shows the speech recognition with speed accuracy improvements and a new streaming mode that allows Windows Phone users to search while they speak. It also handles speech request in noisy environments in an effective manner.
