    8830 Voice features

    Advertisement



    Has anyone else had any problems with the voice features on the 8830? I bet 1/10 times I try to use it, it either doesn't find the person, or it calls the wrong person. Just wondering if anyone else had any input. Thanks

    I for the life of me can't get it to work either. I can get it to do the commands like "Check Memory" but can't get it to dial ther person I want. On the other hand though, my dad uses it all the time on his 8830, and it works flawlessly for him every time. Must just be my voice. LOL I have no clue. Not too big of a deal for me though, I mostly just use quick keys.

    When VoiceSignal was on my old Samsung A900, it worked flawlessly. It was eerie how good it was. On the Blackberry, it is much more flakey for me. I don't know why there should be such a difference in quality but I can echo the OP's experience. Voice activated dialing does not work well for me on my 8800 or 8830.

    Messed up that ratio I tried putting in there also. I meant to say that 9/10 times I use it, it doesn't work.

    hmm...mine works fine...

    The thing that is annoying to me is that when i put my BB in its holster, I randomly hit the voice activation button...I now am having nightmare with a computer generated voice saying "please say a command"...

    I quickly changed my convenience key because I was tired of that message "please say a command"! Mine doesnt work at all. I try to say the name Work and it says, Mike, Dad and Pizza Hut? Whatever, Im gonna practice more tomorrow.

    For your voice app...
    Go to your main icon for options, scroll to voice dialing, you can adjust the sensitivity level. You can adjust it to your need, a bit of adjustment should work pretty well.

    No luck with voice dialing either, anyone find the instructions for it?

    As mentioned the voice dialing/usage can be adjusted.
    The voice dialing is pretty basic, mine works like a charm. It asks for a command, say call.
    Asks for a name, say Ricky Ricardo. It asks you to confirm, say yes. If there is more than one number for the contact it ask you which number, say mobile, and away it goes.
    Nice app.

    Thanks for that tip zipped, worked great for me on my 8830 after adjusting the sensitivity to -2.
