Have you made sure that your "Music volume" is actually turned up? Only then you'll be able to hear the talk-back. To make sure it is, go to the stock music app, hit the "Volume up" key on your phone a few times, then go back to Google Voice Search and try again.

I was searching for a fix to this exact problem and came across your post. I just found this. I remembered your thread and thought i would come back to share this with you. The guide says to: Open Bluetooth Launch and scroll down to “Voice Search”. Tap on it to expand it out, then select: “com.google.android.voicesearch.RecognitionActivity” but i found ...

Go into settings -> apps and click all. Then find voice dialer and disable it. That should disable the voice dialer app and Google Now should come up when you press the call button. If that doesn't work you can always reenable voice dialer.

I'm English, but a southerner with a fairly RP accent, and using voice recognition for Google searching is pretty accurate for me. Unfortunately this sounds like it's an accent thing. I know Google offer their 411 directory voice service in the US, apparently one of the main benefits of this for them is that they can capture a huge amount of speech and use ...

The locale of the app is based on the system wide locale, AFAIK, there is no way of setting each application to use a specific language regardless of how the system wide locale is set. That is, the developers of such applications have taken for granted that, if the system wide locale is set, then the Android run-time will select the appropriate locale for ...

Have you downloaded the files for you language, that supports offline voice recognition? Under Google Now, hit the menu button at the bottom, select Settings, select Voice, then the option to Download offline speech recognition. Also, it could depend on what rom of JellyBean you are running. Some things work better than others in certain roms...

In Android 4.0, say "New Paragraph"

Android's built-in voice-to-text doesnt support new lines. I've heard that flext9's ( based on nuance's excellent dragon voice to text engine) does, however. You might try that, I haven't used it personally so I can't speak to it's efficacy. Ymmv. Etc.

Take a look at the app Tasker. Also the free app Llama may also be able to do this. Tasker and Llama automate tasks on your phone. So you can have them say IF this condition (car charger plugged in) THEN do something (activate SVoice).

I'm not sure if this is true for other phones listed above, but for The Galaxy Note II, I had to make sure S-Voice was disabled (it says Voice Dialer on the first post). Also, if you have downloaded bluetooth launcher you probably already tried: "Google Search" and then selected "com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox.VoiceSearchActivity" and was still ...

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 ...

You could install an alternate launcher like Nova and assign the buttons to do different things. Alternatively you can flash a ROM that has the home button going to Google Search by default.

I wanted to do the same thing but the long press feature seems to be locked down by Google. My work around was to install Headset Button Controller and bind three button presses in a row to voice search which works great. There is a trial version but I was happy to pay a few Euro for the feature. Incidentally, the app also fixed the headset button not ...

Open Google Now. Go to Settings > voice. Change the 'speech output' option.

I had same problem, but after updating it works well. Just update Google Search in the Google Play Store.

I have noticed that it only worked when I have English US selected in the (Choose input method), all others didn't work for me, I live in Canada. English in Canada didn't work also having it set on automatic didn't work either. thanks

Do you mean the Google Voice Search? If so, I think it is only available on selected countries. Here on Brazil, it was unavailable until some weeks ago, when it was released on Android Market. This page shows where it is available: http://www.google.com/support/mobile/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=170820

The setting should still exist, it's just a little bit more awkward to get to. The easiest way is to hit the microphone icon on the search widget (though I think anywhere it appears will work) to bring up the voice action dialog. There's a wrench in the top right of that dialog that opens the settings: Tap that to open the settings page, which should have ...

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 ...

I said "newline" really fast and it did it on Jelly Bean 4.1. When I said "new line" slower it filled in the words "new line." I guess you just say it quick.

For android 4.1.1, I just say "Enter" and it will start a new line.

You can spell out words with the voice input, but it puts spaces between each letter. I can't see there being a feature to support this as saying your password out loud would defeat the point of having a password. Now if you follow the "pass-phrase" model, where your password is something like "i walk on the beach to relax", then it may work. but again, I ...
