The Android phone users can now enjoy the Voice Recognition Service provided by Google. This service is especially for peoples who are tired of typing text and wanted something to automate it and write it for them. But one sad thing about this is; only the Android phone users can enjoy its service.
The Google Voice Recognition Service would listen the words you spoke and then convert it into the text and accordingly the function you have given in the command section (i.e to-do-list).
You might have a doubt really the Voice recognition service recognize the word we speak. The answer is Yes! if you speak the standard English it works well but if you try to change the accent some errors are occur. To recognize your voice, you need to speak every word separately for the phone but it would easily grasp the common words and sentences.
If you Speak about the “Weather in Hyderabad, India” it would easily recognize the sentence eventhough if you speak at a speeder pace. But if you speak something like “Text *contact* I will be late” in fast pace then simply it answers you “Match not Found”.
