    anybody not impressed yet with voice dialing!

    Advertisement



    Used voice dialing for the first time today. Was really blown away by how accurately it scanned my entire address book (which has hundreds of entries), and flawlessly recognized over 20 first and last names and gave me options to dial!

    I have used voice dialing in the past on other phones, it was nowhere as good as this. Any body else have experience with this?

    No 8100 here. Need all my keys.

    I duno know whitch app you are usein but the one I tryed on a nextell 7520 that required you to use the ptt key was sooo slow but it did do a good job of reconizing the names. In the end I deleted it cause it was slow I can use one touch dialing faster~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Re: anybody not impressed yet with voice dialing!

    Hi folks...noobie BB user here....Just bought the Pearl and was reading this thread. For some reason I cannot get the voice dialing to work! When it asks me for a command and I try one (for example an address book entry called "Home" calls my home number) it keeps asking me to repeat and then finds nothing. Then I try a person's name (in my address book they are listed Last, First) and I spoke the name normally (First Last) and still nothing. I read this thread and peopel spoke of "scaning" address book? How do I get it to do that then? Please help Thanks so much

    Re: anybody not impressed yet with voice dialing!

    Essentially, every time I start the voice dial function, it initializes (1 or 2 seconds), and asks me for a command. You have to say "Call" or some other command for it to start listening to the name. So I say "Call", it says "say name or number" - you can do either, and it dials the number (if there is only one choice) or gives you options in case of ambiguity. You can also directly command " Call Smith"... and it will work as well. I was amazed at its accuracy. Most other programs I have used in the past require you to "train" the SW, sometimes even store the voice version of the name you want to voice dial, etc.

    Can you describe your problem? What error do you get? If the side key is not working for you, try launching the applications menu, looking for the icon with a picture of a girl's face (thats the voice activated application), and launch that.

    You ofcourse need to have some names and numbers stored in the address book. Other wise, you cannot dial by name, you can only dial by number. Example "call 800 888 8888"

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~N8, I'm not sure if it is out yet but I came across something the other day describing a 3rd party app that will allow voice e-mailing from the 8100. You could probably find it if you look for it or I'll post a link if I find it again.

    Re: anybody not impressed yet with voice dialing!

    sanjeevjoshi. thanks for helping.
    I get the same thing you do, it says t say a command. I say call. It says say name or number. I say the name of the person in my address book or I have a contact entitled Home to call home. after I say either a name or my home contact, it always says no such name.
    Do I say names first or last name first? in my address book they are listed Last, First. Does this make a difference?Anyone with other ideas? I feel like a fool that no one else seems ot be having an issue What settings should I have it on unier "options"?
    Thanks again
    Jason

    Voice dialing on the pearl is beautiful. Started messing with it the first day. As soon as i realized i had to say "call" first, it hasnt missed a name on the first try! VERY impressed.

    Re: anybody not impressed yet with voice dialing!

    jasonrak, this is odd. Just check your address book once to make sure that the first names, last names, and phone numbers are in the proper fields - sometimes if you transfer info from another device, that may not be the case.

    Lastly, try giving a voice prompt for a number, rather than a name. See if that works,, ie... "say a command" --> "call", "say a name or number", --> 1 800 888 8888 (or whatever number you want).

    these are the only two things I can think of. If both fail, it may be a problem with your software.

    Regards,

    Sanjeev
