There is a checkable/uncheckable option called Block offensive words under Settings → Voice input & output → Voice recognizer settings. For Samsung phones, the settings are named slightly differently: from the Settings app, try Language & input → Voice search settings → Block offensive words. This of course only works with the integrated Google ...

If you are working in a high noise environment, a traditional mic isn't going to help you. Even with a noise cancelling secondary mic it will be very difficult for the equipment to pick your voice out of the noise and isolate it. You might look into a throat mic instead, which grabs your voice by direct contact with you rather than conduction through the ...

For the most part, sure. I just put my Galaxy Nexus (Android 4.2.2) into Airplane mode and tried to compose an email message with speech-to-text. It worked, but it was slo-o-o-o-w. And not as accurate as I'd like. If you go into Settings > Language & input > Google voice typing (settings) you can set which languages are downloaded to your device ...

I would expect TTS and ASR to be very memory-intensive as they process input (which needs to be stored and transformed) and generate output. So slow memory would probably be a limiting factor with a fast CPU. There should also be a little I/O -- loading voice samples for comparison and playback -- but I would not expect it to be as much of an issue. I ...

You can't (at the present). There is no command in voice recognition for typing to specify that a common noun is a proper noun and it needs to be capitalized. However, this service seems to be in beta version (see the link below) and we can expect some improvements soon: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/1407892 For now, Android speech recognition ...

I have a similarly sized contact list and I've found that the Voice Dialer is both slow to load and slow to find responses on my Moto Droid (on 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2). I stopped using the Voice Dialer and started using Voice Search (aka. Voice Actions) by saying "Call Jane Smith mobile." I've found Voice Search to open quickly and to find contacts quickly. Both ...
