Apple was widely expected to announce the integration of Nuance voice technology into iOS 5 at WWDC; however, no mention of Nuance was made during the keynote.
Multiple sources reiterated that they still believed Apple was working with Nuance and perhaps negotiations weren't complete or the feature wasn't yet ready for the iOS 5 unveiling. Supporting this was the finding of Nuance in Mac OS X Lion and the attendance of Nuance's Chief Mobile Technology Architect at the keynote.

A settings menu found in an internal iOS build reveals Nuance Dictation and Nuance Long Endpoi... switches for the Springboard. Another settings menu reveals Mic on space key, Auto-Record Input and other toggles.
It's unclear if any of these features will make it into iOS 5.0 by release.
