I just purchased a Moto G. I can't find a voice dialer that works in places where there is no access to wifi/data. The Google app just displays a message that Google can't be reached. The phone already has Offline language set to English(US). Perhaps there is a different app out there that will work? None of the apps that I've tried so far have helped with this problem (Utter!, Speak2call, I've tried a bunch).

I can't even believe this is an issue. My old flip phone with no wifi/data capability had no problem voice dialing contacts on the phone's contact list.

Thanks for your help.


It's likely because most 3rd party apps as well as Google's own offering rely on Android's Text-to-Speech capability, which doesn't appear to be available offline on your device.

I understand you have set the offline language, but do just verify the following settings are set correctly:

Go into the Settings app on your phone and navigate to Language & input » Text-to-speech output. Tap on the Settings button next to Google Text-to-speech engine and then on Install voice data.

Ensure that the correct voice data is downloaded
