Featured: Dragon Mobile Assistant Takes On Google Now For Android 4.0 And Up


Wednesday 24th of October 2012 / androidheadlines.com
Google Now has been out on 4.1 Jelly Bean devices for a while, but what about those who are still rocking Ice Cream Sandwich? Well, there’s some good news and it won’t involve you having to root your phone and install a custom ROM.Sure. You don’t get Google Now, but Nuance Dragon Mobile Assistant offers similar functionality. The app is available now from the Play Store and is currently in beta. If you recall, Nuance released an app a long time ago or at least what seems like it, called Dragon Go! which basically just offered voice-to-text functionality.Now, with Dragon Mobile Assistant, it takes that same sophisticated voice recognition technology, but gives you the ability to do all sorts of actions. Here’s what’s listed on the Play Store page:Make a call – “Call Ashley on her mobile”Send a text message – “Tell John I’ll be there in five”Create a calendar event – “Set up a meeting with Jake Barnes tomorrow at 2pm”Update Facebook or Twitter – “Send out a new Tweet, What a finish to

Evernote for Android updated with speech-to-text and enhanced widget


Wednesday 28th of March 2012 / phandroid.com
Evernote has pushed a pretty major update to their Android app that will take voice notes to the next level. Using Google’s speech recognition suite users now have the option to transcribe voice input into text notes. At the very least it provides an easy way to search audio notes (the original recording remains pinned to the text note). Because it relies on Google’s service an internet connection is required to take advantage of the new functionality. Some users will be disappointed to learn that speech-to-text is only available on Android 4.0 devices and a few select other handsets.Also receiving an update is Evernote’s separate widget app. The widget is now customizable with color, custom button, and note display options. A new “tiny widget” has also been introduced, occupying a single 1×1 tile and linked to a single Evernote function of the user’s choosing. What fans of Evernote will really like, though, is the new Quick Snapshot button, which launches the phone’s camera, snaps a photo, and saves it to Evernote.You can grab the updat

Google Voice Update Brings Android 4.0 Integration – Playback Options, Access From Dialer, and New UI – Droid Life


Thursday 22nd of March 2012 / droid-life.com
 Since we saw Android 4.0 unveiled in Hong Kong last October, we have been waiting patiently for Google Voice integration into the dialer or contacts. That time is now. Once you update to the latest version in the Play Store, you can flag the “Voicemail display” box in GV Settings to turn your dialer into an instant voicemail center.As you can see in the photos above, your dialer will then attach to your contacts that have left you messages in Google Voice, giving you the ability to play voicemails without having to enter the GV app. From this new voicemail screen, you can slow down or speed up messages, delete them, and call or text the person. The app itself has also been skinned to match ICS styling while allowing for much swifter navigation. This new feature only works with Android 4.0+.Play LinkCheers Adam!

Tuesday 10th of April 2012 / androidauthority.com
Some people don’t really mind the stock messaging app on their phone and would prefer it as it is.  But, of course, some want a messaging app that can do more than what stock has to offer. If you are one of the latter, I bet that you would love to have Handcent SMS. The app has several features like scheduling a text message, blacklisting annoying contacts, voice input/output, and more.Developed by handcent_market, Handcent SMS was recently upgraded to version 4.0, which supports both Android 4.0 and Android 2.3. This new version has several improvements such as more features, an improved user interface, free text to some Handcent users, and support for an upcoming chat service similar to ChatON, which is available for both iOS and Android users.FeaturesAside from the aforementioned features, the app also sports several other features like quick replies, batch text messaging, scheduled texts, backup/restore of text messages, and many more to mention. Those are just the most common features of the app.If you talk about advanced features, it also has many. It has features like f

Android 4.0 voice to text


Thursday 08th of March 2012 / androidforums.com
How good is the instant voice typing feature in this version of Android compared with the previous ones where it stopped listening after you paused. I have an Android device running on Froyo 2.2 and the voice to text ability is pretty poor. I was wondering if it really is that good on the GNEX as they make it out to be in the adverts. I've tried the Siri on the iPhone and thats quite good, how does it compare?

Android 4.0 - Google Voice Typing - Grumble


Wednesday 27th of June 2012 / androidforums.com
Ok, I just updated my Galaxy S2 to Android 4.0My question is this:I go to type a text message, I click the microphone icon to use the voice to text feature. I say something, it then appears on the page. But...if its not sure about a word it will underline that word. If you then click on the word or next to it to correct it, a list of what it thinks you might have meant to say pops up. And therein lies my issue. I don't want a list, I don't want the word underlined. I simply want the word on the page and the ability to correct manually, no predictions or suggestions for words are wanted.I have went into the keyboard and voice settings, and have turned off every predictive text setting I can find but seem to be unable to turn off the word suggestions when using the voice input feature. I do not like predictive or suggestive text in any way. Is there a way to fix this other than to buy an iPhone?Thank you for your help.Atarine

Voice Command not functioning with bluetooth after 4.0.4 update


Saturday 23rd of November 2013 / androidforums.com
Okay. I am not totally sure what the "proper" name is to call this function, but it is the function on my S2 that translates voice to text. I don't know if it is voice command, voice talk, vlingo or something else. But in most apps when you go to type something in, there is a little microphone in the bottom left corner of the Android keyboard that you can tap on and then say what you want to type and it will type it it for you.Before I updated my phone to android 4.0.4, it use to work with my Plantronics Voyger Pro Plus, but now (after the update) it does not. Each time I want to use this function, I have to turn my BT headset off and use the phone speaker. The problem is not one of translation, it simply does not listen through the BT headset. I have also noticed another problem with the BT after the update. When trying to make a phone call from my headset by pushing and holding on the call button, my phone can't understand what I am saying. It used to work almost flawlessly before the update, but now it does not. In this case it does listen through the BT, but it does not
