Google’s facility of recognizing voice commands in Android devices is pretty handy in a lot of situations. If you’re eating dinner and want to search something online, you can simply speak the keywords and Android’s voice recognition module will type those keywords on your behalf. Or, for example, you can make a call to a person by just speaking “Call Lalit Kumar”. Android will promptly look for a contact named Lalit Kumar in your phone contact book and initiate the call. Likewise, there are a number of voice commands that you can use to pass orders to your Google Android device.
Although Android’s voice recognition is pretty good —but sometimes it makes a mistake in properly recognizing the words. This could largely be due to noise around you, your accent or non-English nature of spoken words. But now you can easily correct the misinterpreted / misheard words and tell Google that you meant something else.
For example, if you want to search for “Incredible India” and Android interprets your command as “Incredible Lydia” —you can correct the search by saying:
“No I said India”
On hearing this, Google Android will interpret “no I said” as a command and will reinterpret the word spoken after it. After reinterpretation, system will carry out a search with “Incredible” and the new interpretation of second word “India”.
Give it a try on your Android mobile device. It’s fun… and it’s useful too!
Most of the people feel more comfortable with typing on phones instead of issuing voice commands. However, if you begin to use voice commands, soon you will find that you are quickly getting accustomed to it.
