ICS Voice Search vs Gingerbread Voice Search
My name is x, and I'm a Google Voice Search app addict. =)
There's a huge difference in the Voice Search apps across
the two different versions of Android.
I use Google Voice Search for EVERYTHING. I ride a Ninja everywhere,
add it's my only vehicle. I sometimes send text messages at a red
light, pull over and "call" a business or friend quickly, tell my Droid
"navigate to" my destination, and etc. it's EXTREMELY useful.
I can't live without it.
In Gingerbread, the texting feature was getting better and better.
For example: if Google didn't understand a particular word, then
it would be highlighted. You could then select the word and be
given a few different options, and Google would thus learn from
you. However, in ICS... The highlighted option no longer appears.
Also, this would come in handy when you had multiple contacts
with the same or similar names. Even if the name wasn't highlighted
in the To field, then you could still tap the the contact name in the To
field and select another suggested name. Another useful thing by
tapping a word or contact name: it would highlight the entire contact.
Now.. In ICS, tapping the contact doesn't give you any options.
This all in turn ends up with me having to type more in the Voice Search
texting window for typos, when it can't understand a particular word, or
if it just puts the wrong person in the To field. It practically defeats the
purpose of Voice To Text.
Is anyone else having similar experience?
Is it possible to install a working version of Voice Search from Gingerbread
I have a Droid RAZR Maxx running ICS stock rooted.
