voice dialing feature???

Good Day to all!!:smileyhappy:

 

When I try to adapt digits on my voice dialing feature, I receive this message "Unable to allocate memory, Close other applications and try again!"  I also receive the same message when I try to use this feature???.  I love this phone...but does anyone know what that means????

Re: voice dialing feature???

It's possible you need more memory (micro sd) - there may not be enough available internal memory on the actual device.

Have you cycled power on your device since you've had this problem?

Good Evening to all!!

 

 

I called AT&T and after about 20 minutes...they suggested that I remove the battery for about 15 seconds and then place it back in and see what happens.  It worked!  Voice software is working, but the voice dialing is not???  Is that a feature that you have to pay for?

Re: voice dialing feature???

I had the same problem when I got my Bold. I was using the back button to exit programs. Then I discovered I needed to use th menu to close or exit and the problem was solved. Hope this helps you.

Re: voice dialing feature???

I'm a foreigner and my address book has many foreign names.Plus, I have an accent.

 

My need is very simple: I don't want my BlackBerry (BB) to guess the pronunciation of a foreign name -- it would never get it right (it doesn't even recognize my own name, Julio). I want to tell BB how to pronounce each contact, training the device one contact at a time.

 

I know it's a very simple need because I had a cheap 2000 model cell phone (I don't even remember the make) that had that feature -- and it was very useful to me. When driving my car, I'd tell my cheap old phone to call my friend "Martín" (accent on "i", Spanish pronunciation) and it would actually call Martín and not Martin (a different friend, stress on "a", English pronunciation). It worked perfectly, ALL the time. When I try dialing a foreign friend with my BB, it always dials somebody else -- which is very embarrassing.

 

Is it possible to train BB to pronounce foreign names correctly? If not, why not? How come it cannot do what many cheap old phones were able to do?

 

Thanks!!!

Re: voice dialing feature???

JuLePe,

I have an identical problem with my BB Storm 2 and have not found a way to improve its voice recognition.  The BB's HELP recommends I use the "Adapt Voice" (similar to the "Adapt Digits").  However, my Storm 2 does NOT have this feature!

I'm  therefore stuck with intentionally mispronouncing my contact names, multiple times, to get the antiquated speech recognition software to recognize me.  For such a high quality product, it is totally useless for hands-free, voice dialing!

 

If you've learned how to improve the voice recognition on your BB, please post.

 

Thanks.
