When you have a text input with text-transform:uppercase applied to it then dictating into that field using iOS8 will fail after the second letter.

This reproduces in Safari on iPad using iOS8.1.2

It also fails in a UIWebView where the XCode logs show many errors like this:

Given text range 'UITextRangeImpl(7082DB80) - start:<UITextPosition: 0x174608a80, 0, {""}, {"WH"}>, end:<UITextPosition: 0x17460a920, 2, {"WH"}, {""}>' we could not find the last hypothesis "Wh". The likely cause is that something modified the text store or the hypothesis during dictation.

It claims that something "modified the text store" which I assume is what text-transform does.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open attached HTML file on iPad running iOS 8.1.2
2. Tap into a red region
3. Tap the dictation button on the keyboard and say "Why doesn't this work"
4. Notice only the first couple characters make it in
5. Notice it fails for all three types of entry (input/textarea/contenteditable)
