Voice Dialing


Aug 5, 2010, 1:06 PM
I just purchases the Vibrant from Walmart as an upgrade (best price on-line or off-line) and find it to be a great phone (this is my first Android - coming from BB). The only problem I am having is the it seems to do a very poor job in recognizing my voice commands - either dialing a specific number or calling a programmed contact. Any thoughts on correcting this?

Also I am disappointed that the contact is not spoken back to me for confirmation and automatic dialing. I have to physically pick the contact and push the dial button.

Does anyone think that a third party app like Vlingo would work better and give me voice-back confirmation on the selections?

I just read that Google has come up with something called Voice Actions that improves this, as well as offering many other commands besides just dialing. Here's a link to one article about it:

But it only applies to Android 2.2 (Froyo) so you'll need to wait for that update to be pushed out (hopefully this fall).
