Choice Dialer Plus (free)

Choice Dialer Plus (free)


Choice Dialer Plus Free is a hands-free Voice Dialer, with voice confirmation and added commands and options. It confirms commands interactively by voice, making it much safer for driving.

it does not need a data connection (except for dictating texts and emails) and has many configurable options.

"Call Jim Harris at mobile"
"next song"
"shuffle play music"
"Find contact for Ed Bly"
"Send a text to Jay Snow"
"Set my Facebook status" (you can dictate the text!)

This free version also include a short demo period of additional features in the paid version of Choice Dialer Plus: music and calendar commands and dictation for emails and texts.

Most phones running Android 2.2 or later will deliver hands-free Bluetooth headset support. If Android's Voice Dialer works with your headset, so will this app, but it will do more.

Speech recognition in US English only. I'm sorry but I do not have access to other languages. Other English accents will work to a lesser degree.

TIPS:

1. When confirming a command, say "That is correct" rather than "Yes", as the shorter word is often lost in the noise.
2. For best recognition, enter the full names for your contacts, even "Mom" and "Dad".
3. Press "Menu" as the app listens for Help and Settings panels. Not all features are enabled by default.
4. Speak confidently and naturally. Speaking-word-by-word-often-hurts-more-than-it-helps.

BLUETOOTH
1. You need Android 2.2 or later for hands-free dialing over Bluetooth
2. Some phone users report that they need to remove their phone's battery for 5 full minutes before the Bluetooth Voice Dialing works.

Recent changes:
+ New Setting (default "on") to confirm commands unless user is clearly heard to say "No" or "Never mind"
+ Possible fix for phones that show EULA every time
+ Builds 135 and 136 worked poorly for many -- fixed? Sorry for the doubt, as all these work fine on my phone.

User reviews of Choice Dialer Plus (free)
Since last update keep getting notification saying "Defending Memory" Other than that, app works pretty well "most" of the time. Its not perfect, but it beats all the other options.

It won't recognize any of the names I try to call.

A "exit" or "cancel" command would be most helpful

Works pretty well, truly hands free All I had to do was press the headset button, and Choice Dialer did the rest. Say a command, the app verbally confirms what you said and then does it. All without using any data whatsoever. Sadly, this functionality should be built in to the OS. Stopped working when I upgraded to ICS. I don't know why the developer won't add ICS support. Seems a waste to let such an awesome app to eventually become obsolete. Especially since JB will be beefing up the on-board voice recognition.

Sucks Gave it a good honest try via bluetooth and it never got any of the phone numbers right nor dialed the appropriate contact.
