Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
On my Nokia 920, I receive a text, there is a 2 second delay before she reads, there is another option now which I feel doesn't make sense, I respond (ask if it's correct and would like to send) then done. It may look the same but there is a difference between the two phones.
I find that the voice recognition on the 920 is poor in noisy situations but good when there is little background noise. I tested this side by side with my iPhone 5 in the car and the Nokia 920 couldn't understand 10 attempts at the same dictation while the iPhone 5 picked it up first time perfect.
But after reasing thread after thread on this forum along with the Nokia support forums im not the only one who feels this way about certain features of this device/os.
I'm pretty impressed with the voice recognition on my 920. Was admiring this just last night as I was dictating text replies while running on the treadmill. My phone was 3 feet away and I was winded. Also have no problems in the truck while phone is mounted about 18 inches away.
I have heard friends with varying opinions on Siri. Postulating that some people's voices are more suitable than others. I.e. One's natural tone may have certain advantages with their hardware. Maybe this is true for tellme as well.
I have also watched people get frustrated, talk louder, over-enunciate and practically put the phone in their mouth in hopes this would help...just makes things worse and they look stupid.
It would be interesting if our dictation was stored and we could listen to it directly just to see what is being recorded for processing.
I'm not a troll I have a 920 (which is getting replaced because of a bad battery) but is there anything in this phone\os even come close to android or IOS features?
Yep. Except it won't tell you a joke when you ask it to do something.
What exactly are you trying to do with voice reco?
Edit: simple example. Pair with bluetooth to your car. Now, drive somewhere. When a text comes in, WP8 (and 7 for that matter) will prompt via bluetooth "message from X - read it or ignore" you say "read it" it does. Then it prompts "reply or I'm done" you say Reply it says say your message you say OK thanks I have just replied to your message without endangering fellow drivers" it reads that back to you and offers try again, add, or send" you say send, it sends the txt.
Siri,,, yeah Siri wouldn't get you far with that scenario. Perhaps you should learn how to use your phone? Voice Controlled: A guide to using speech with Windows Phone 8 | Windows Phone Central
