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 ...

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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Solved it! I realised that I had set Language to 'English(UK)' (under 'voice' settings of the Google Now app) and apparently hotword detection currently works only with English(US) (In my case, the offline voice recognition package I had installed was 'English(US)' , but language was English(UK) )! Solution: So a simple switching of 'Language' to ...

I found a solution to the initial problem. It seems that this is a common bug and in the software since at least Anroid 4.2. There is an Application in the Play Store that does nothing but reacting to the Bluetooth button and starting the voice recognition: Voice Command When I push the Button, I have to select what app to start, I chose "Voice Command" ...

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 ...

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 ...

I was just looking for the same thing to be able to run my phone in English, but my Navigation application in my native language (dutch). I found a program called localized apps program on XDA Developers: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1174443 It lets you create a shortcut for an app for a different language (it actually changes your phone ...

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 ...

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 ...
