Have you tried 3rd-party solutions? Call Confirm app on the Market seems to do exactly what you need. I just installed it and can confirm that it works in conjunction with other apps (Voice Search, Google Voice, etc.)

far easier, folks: settings > language & input > keyboard & input methods: DISABLE 'google voice typing'

After searching around, this appears to be an issue with SlimKat ROM itself. Reading this review of SlimKat or alternative link to article as their formatting is awful, the line that jumped out at me was: ....talk to by simply saying "Okay Google" (sometimes even just okay-_-) suggests this happens on the ROM. Also there is a theory that the ...

if your phone has hard keys you can start void by holding down the search key (don't have to touch the screen).

I do not know of a way to disable Google Now intercepting media button presess unless you have a rooted phone, as you did not specify that you did, I am going to assume you don't. The easiest way to do this would be to disable the Google Voice search app. Go to your Apps settings menu (System Settings --> Apps). Slide to the left until you get to the ...

In order for the Voice Actions to successfully set the alarm the device must contain an app that implements the android.intent.action.SET_ALARM intent. (Read more in the documentation of android.provider.AlarmClock.) There is no guarantee that your device contains such an app (unless it's a stock Android). The situation is worse on Samsung Galaxy S II (with ...

It appears that it is possible to get the "Set Alarm..." voice action working by installing a leaked version of DeskClockGoogle.apk as described on this website. I have not tested it. It seems that this feature is not yet officially released but is coming soon.

You could try enabling the "Personalized Recognition" option in the Voice Search settings. This option basically causes Voice Search to store words and phrases that you use on your Google account, and gradually build up a voice library of your speech patterns. You can read the original announcement for it on the Google Mobile blog. I believe this feature ...

Unfortunately, you can't. The list of available languages is a system configuration option that affects the Voice Search app, but can also be used by other apps, and by design isn't intended to be updated that often. Google assumes that a user sets the desired language and performs actions based on it, as one tends to use the native language to perform such ...

Not that I'm aware of. Presumably you could create an application that listened to the mic all the time and triggered it (voice search) on a certain phrase, but as voice to text is done "in the cloud" it would require a huge amount of data to go back and forth to accomplish this. One shudders to think of the implications on non-unlimited data plans, not to ...

Are you using the Galaxy Nexus? On your home screen you will see the "Google Search" bar. On the right, inside this bar, you will see a microphone symbol. Tap it. I believe you are stuck going back to this screen.

In ICS, to disable an app you can go to Settings -> Apps -> All tabs -> click the app name and click "Disable". I assume its same for JB as well.

Here's how you can turn this off in most Android builds: Look for an app called "Google Settings." By default, the icon will look like this: From there, choose "Search & Now" → "Voice" → "'Ok Google' hotword detection" and turn that setting off. If that doesn't apply to your phone's OS, you'll need to provide more info. If you are running ...

Apparently you can use the training software it includes and just train it to hear something else. As in, if it says "read this: " just say whatever you like.

At last, I found a solution. The problem was with the entry in sports section in Google Now. It can also happen with entry in stocks according to this article. Resetting the Google Now data fixed the issue. Steps I did: Open Google Now and click the magic wand on the bottom right which opens a Customize Google Now screen. Click the sports section and ...

I also think the voice recognition is a nuisance. On my phone (running CyanogenMod) the only setting I found was "Settings", "Language & Input" -> "Voice Search" then disable "Ok Google" detection. I think it was mishearing my saying "Ok Google" when it would pick up random voice commands.

Okay, I figured out how to set the good ol' Voice Commands app as the default voice commands interface. It has to be done while not connected to a hands free device via Bluetooth. Tap into the Phone app Tap the Phone app's microphone icon In my case a prompt appeared asking me to select the default app to handle voice commands. Thereafter, it's used ...

With Google Now/Voice Actions I don't think there's any way to do this. Some actions will happen automatically after a short delay ("note to self..." is one I know offhand; there may be others), but text messaging requires you to actually press the "Send" button on the card that pops up. However, you could try a third-party app for these specific functions ...

You can go to settings-> applications and choose "all" tab to see the list of all apps and services. Scroll down to the end and choose voice search, which brings you an option to stop the service. If your device is rooted, you can go one more step ahead and even uninstall the voice search app. In that case, you may need to have app like Link2SD.

Try this Can I train Google Voice Actions to better recognize my voice? Digging around Android forums and elsewhere, I found a good number of testimonies from speech-to-text enthusiasts who saw better results from simply speaking at a normal clip. Google representative Nadja Blagojevic offered much the same advice for the search giant's voice product in ...

In Google Voice app go to Menu -> More -> Settings -> Making calls -> Ask every time I make a call. Now you will be presented with a pop-up asking to choose whether or not to use Google Voice for this call. It doesn't show the name or number you're dialing, but at least it will give you a buffer zone, a chance to cancel a call.

I believe the clock application on the HTC Desire is one made by HTC and not Google. I believe Google is in the process of releasing their own clock application via the Market as they have done with their other apps like Maps and soon to be Gmail.
