Voice Control Question

This may be a dumb question, but I can't find a way to turn "off" (deactivate) Voice Control on my Z10. Can anyone help?
I recently purchased "SayIt" and it is so much better.
Thank you in advance!
Sincerely

Re: Voice Control Question

Why do you need to turn it off, since you're using SayIt?

Re: Voice Control Question

No sense in wasting resources #1 reason. Second reason, I can't find a way to turn it off. (Speaking of BB Voice Control).
Thank you.

Re: Voice Control Question

I don't know of a way turn it off.

Doing so might just disable SayIt, since SayIt likely uses the same resources to work.

Re: Voice Control Question

Thanks for trying though.
Just seems very odd that BB would not include a simple "off" option.
Since SayIt is an app, it doesn't use BB's Voice Control at all.

Re: Voice Control Question

Other than turning it off, I was looking at how to delete that module, but again, I would be afraid that doing so would disable SayIt.

Re: Voice Control Question

No worries! I've been searching various BB forums and to my dismay, it appears nobody ever really turns off Voice Control once they've turned it on. Hence, there's little to no info regarding how to disable it (turn off).
I'll wait and see on this post & others that I posed with the same question as to how this is done.
Wishing you a great day ahead, and thanks for taking the time to reply.
Sincerely -

Re: Voice Control Question

Yep, welcome... I ran a scan of my device monitor resources being used, and the voice control doesn't appear.

Could be a part of the main system resources... but that's running at 1.5% idle.
