Speech to Text functionality is coming in Connection 8.0 that's heading into EFT next month. The set of features around the STT engine for 8.0 is based on subscribers being able to have voice messages left for them transcribed to text for notification/review purposes (i.e. a voice mail gets left for you and a few minutes later you can get an SMS text with the text of that message for review).
In your scenario if the user the subscriber is replying to was another subscriber and they were configured for STT it would work more or less like this.
