e815 voice recognition incorrect

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by OksanaK, Jan 12, 2006.

    For the life of me I can't get my e815 to recognize the contact names
    correctly.
    Call parents becomes a choice between Amy, Andrew and Lexxy. UGH!
    I thought I might have a pronounciation issue or something, but my
    friends can't get it to work either. Is there a way to train it or
    something?

    It works perfectly on numbers, but I don't remember anyones digits
    anymore.

    Another question, is there a command to call speed dial?

    Thank you.

    Take it back. Mine works fine unless there is any kind of wind involved.

    Good for you. How many contacts do you have? And any ideas on how to
    make mine work?

    Mine's probably accurate about 80% of the time. I just try to speak a
    little slowly enunciate a little more, and then listen to how it reads
    the name back to me. It's not quite natural speech, but it beats
    having to pre-record the contact's name and then hope that you match
    your own recording like I did with my old Nokia.

    It does deal pretty well with different inflections, though. I've said
    "check status" about a half-dozen ways depending on my mood, and that
    one never fails.

    I believe "Take it Back" covers it.

    Judging by the internet, quite a few people are experiencing this
    problem, so taking it back is at best another roulette shot.

    The internet is not a reliable way to judge phone problems. The people
    who post here tend to have problems. There are thousands more who have
    phones and don't post. I for one have had very few problems with any
    of my phones.
     
  8. Mine works pretty well.

    I have not yet been able to figure out how to pronounce the names of
    some Indian colleques. It does a preety good job with most others.

    Funny ones are YMCA (``imca'') and AAA (``aah'').

    Thanks.

    It's funny now, but might not be in an emergency if you can't pronounce
    "cty" or "pd" (as in Cook Cty Sheriff or Hillside PD, two real entries
    that I had in mine). I went back and spelled out all the abbreviations
    and acronyms I found. I recommend it to everyone.

    While I don't have the Motorla E815 manual in front of me, I do know
    that most other voice-recognition capable phones have language in their
    manual that states that the voice command features should not be relied
    upon in an emergency. I recommend that people heed that advice, and
    revert to their fingers and viewing the screen, just as if the phone did
    not have voice dial.

    And, I find the inevitable "but what if I'm in an emergency and can't
    dial with my fingers or see the screen?" argument weak. There was a
    time when cell phones were nowhere close to understanding voice
    commands, and yet we somehow coped. Hell, humans even coped with
    emergencies prior to the existence of cell phones, and they still do in
    outlying areas where there is no coverage.

    and, if a cat can dial 911, then so should almost everyone else

    Ah, I was playing with my phone, with the headset on, and I figured out
    how to solve my problem, plus your problem
    >I have not yet been able to figure out how to pronounce the names of some Indian colleques


    Apparently, when you scroll to a contact, on the contact list, the
    phone pronounces the name(unless it's in silent mode). Of course, in a
    normal situation you can't hear it, as you are actually looking at the
    screen and not listening.

    Once I heard how to pronounce the names, it got much better. Plus the
    phone seem to actually get trained as time goes one. Either that, or it
    just has a preference for the recently dialed numbers

    I found the option to enable that! It is in
    Settings/Personalize/Sound Settings/Contacts. Set it to voice. If
    you are using the speakerphone you'll hear it loud and clear.

    Thanks.
