blog post using a nexus 1 voice

This is an experiment Don’t b surprised by 5 spelling and punctuation I am using the nexus 1 voice Map to create this blog post did experiment should show the accuracy of this application as you can already see the nexus 1 is doing a good job recognizing some words but is having trouble with others i m not understanding tell punctuation white capitals is being interpreted wow that last sentence was really awesome no no not wash them all o f f no not wash. Not a w e s o m e i am speaking the word all o f f. Maybe i talk funny


Okay- so now I am using the Nexus One keyboard. My brief experiment is actually a really good demo of what you can expect from the very space age voice technology of this brand new phone. For example, I could not get the phone to recognize the word ‘off’ and punctuation is totally up for grabs!

My feeling from this test is that we are not yet to the point where print-ready content can be created with Voice. True, I could go back and edit the above…perhaps if I was in some sort of live, note-taking scenario. But, we just don’t seem to have technology perfect enough yet to make this a replacement for good old typing.

I hope you found this demonstration interesting! I am now going to save this post here in the back end of WordPress, return to my trusty laptop and add this nifty little image:

    Thanks for that demo, I personally thought the voice recognition did an okay job there as well. How long have you been using the voice for? Reports tell me that the N1 learns for better recognition so this could still be improving, right? I’ve got one of these on order and can’t wait to get it in a few weeks when my Dad brings it out to New Zealand from England. A bit of hassle getting your hands on one when your all the way out here:) Thanks again for the demo.

    Greetings, Antz!

    I’ve only had the phone for about 48 hours. I’ve been blogging about my very first impressions of using the device. Thanks for mentioning that the N1 ‘learns’. That’s fascinating and I hadn’t heard that. I really hope you’ll enjoy your Nexus One when it arrives. Fun! Thank you for stopping by.

    I’m considering purchasing a Nexus One, just like you! Thanks for your posts about it — they have been very interesting for me to read!

    From what I’ve read, it sounds like you actually have to speak the punctuation you want. Saying words like “period” and “question mark” adds the punctuation in. Anyways, maybe that will work for you!

    Welcome Scott!
    Thank you for that tip. I’ll give it a shot. Rather like sending a telegram in the old days. I’m glad my posts have been helpful to you and I hope they assist you in making an informed purchase of whichever phone you choose!
