Should I try MS Voice Command on Jasjar ?

Hi, over a year ago I bought a copy of MS Voice Command on my XDA2. I struggled to get it to work effeciently/consistently enough, and I felt I couldn't quite get the right accent ops:

Anyway, I kinda like the software but it was hit and miss if it picked it up.

Now the jasjar comes with a voice recognition software, preloaded, which I think works very well, using voice tags.

I do not believe though it will call out appointment details though or reminders etc, which I know MS VC will.

I note from the MS website that u can upgrade for free, so I was wondering if peeps think it is a worthwhile app to load. Is the newer version any better than the old version.

I value all comments about using MS Voice Command on jasjar.

Cheers, Numb

Running it on my jasjar. You can hack it to start recognising when you hit your BT headset button (search for posts by me and you'll find the instructions).

You need V1.5 to work properly and you will have to muck about a bit as the installer doesn't seem to like AS4.

Great piece of software though.

V1.5 is a big improvement on V1.0. The version notes actually mention improvements that were made specifically for PPC PE devices. I have found it now to be 95% accurate, whereas with V1.0, i would generally have to repeat commands most of the time. Good luck with it!

well I have messed around with this for nearly 2.5 hours trying to load v1.5 on the jasjar with no success. I either don't have 1.0 installed or an older version is installed on the phone. Now am really frustrated.

Flipping heck how frstrating

well as I can't even load it I think I will have to wait for the WM5 version. Knowing my luck though MS will probably charge for this upgrade. I just feel that if VC was working well on the device, it would be perfect :lol: :lol:

I was able to install MS Voice Command 1.5 by first running the installer, then grabbing the CAB file from the program files directory on the PC, copying it over to the JJ, then executing the CAB on the JJ. Still working on getting it to work over BT.

Good luck!
