Ford is considering a safer option for drivers who insist on texting while behind the wheel. The voice-to-text system is being developed after the automaker's recent endorsement of a proposed US ban on texting while driving.

Ford's director of electronics says a voice-to-text system would keep drivers from typing on a handheld device.

Ford hopes to add this feature to its current sync system which controls some of the cars functions and the entertainment system by voice.
