    Just replicated the issue. It only happens with the battery command. Fix coming before next weekend.

    EDIT:
    Due to the severity of the issue the fix is now packaged in the 1.1 update, processing certification now.

    Version 1.1 has just been submitted to the store featuring a bug fix for the battery level command, a bug fix for trial mode, a new home page, alarms and reminders support. Also included in this update is a bing search command. Version 1.1 will pass store certification within the next two or three days and will be available to download at that time!

    Download the app at: Speech | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    TellMe on WP8 is extremely lacking. We all know that. iPhone friends on Siri laugh at us in horror when it comes to voice assistants. Android users the same. Due to this problem becoming even more prevalent as voice assistants become even more advanced, I've decided to create an app that links into TellMe and adds key commands missing from WP8 such as:


    Trial Version

    Send Email
    What Can I Say (List of these commands inside the app)
    Search (Bing, Google, Amazon, etc)
    Time/Date
    Map Search
    Store Search

    Only in the Full Version

    Navigation/Directions
    Battery Life
    Share Status
    Shuffle/Pause/Play/Previous/Next Music
    Appointments (Version 1.1)
    Alarms (Version 1.1)

    Coming Soon

    Accent Color Support
    Reminders
    Calculator
    Calling/Texting
    Search sites such as Wolfram Alpha
    Easter Eggs such as siri's joke commands (Very low priority)

    How does it work?

    Simply download the app and launch it, installing the new commands. Then, just launch TellMe and say any of the added commands to TellMe. It supports natural speech recognition and listens for one keyword. For example, you could say "Phone, send an Email to Stephen with the subject hi and body how are you doing", and it will pick out the keyword "Email" and know what you are talking about. When using any command, put "Phone" in the front of it. For example, you would say "Phone, share status" instead of "share status". This is a technical limitation of Windows Phone.

    Pricing and Availability

    It will launch in the Windows Phone store by next week, or if it passes certification without any problems, by the end of this week. It will launch at .99 for the full version and free for the trial. The full version adds more commands that you can use.

    The Future

    I'm planning many updates adding the commands listed under "Coming soon". I will update with bugfixes if the bugs are reported. There will be no public beta here on WPCentral.

    1.1 Update (Submitted, Available Soon)
    - Appointments Support
    - "Search Bing" Command
    - Bug Fixes
    - Alarms

    1.2 Update
    - Reminders
    - Accent Color Support

    The app will launch under the name "Speech".

    The app is not localized to India. You can only use English voice commands by opening tellMe and saying a command. Say Phone, What can I say? For a list of commands.

    I'm not getting good recognition of some commands compared to the native Tellme, I can get the app to open fine but accuracy varies a lot from there. Can anything be done or is it a case of my speech pattern just isn't compatible, (for lack of a better word(?

    I'm using the default tell me API. There isn't much I can do to those APIs regarding accuracy, but I can look into it.

    is there any possibility of localisation in future updates?

    Ok, thanks. Here's an example, if I search for Lumia 1020 with the native Tellme it recognizes the works fine, with Speech I get "Do/No me a 10:20". Pics attached.

    Just updated, responds a bit faster when activated which is good, still has the trial issue for battery, will tell you the command is not available then shows battery time anyway, but at least seems to pick up the estimated life better now.
