I use the stock app but I can see the attraction however marred they may be.
Vlingo is no longer available after being bought by Nuance. I'm looking for another app that will wait in "sleep mode" until "awakened" by a voice command and then be used to voice dial a call. In other words a total;y hands-free voice dialer that does not need an internet connection to function. Any suggestions?
Outside of some basic voice recognition that won't work well, the horsepower to do great recognition, which is what folk expect today means we have to take the clip up to the cloud to crunch it. Also if someone really wants to do it right, a learning system would accept typed input to correct the bad voice to text and send that up to the cloud so it could learn.
But as it stands today, voice to text requires great microphones, low to no background noise and horsepower. So for now, that means a data connection.
Light bulbs you shouldn't buy
There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
