If I'm not mistaken, ASR is currently only officially supported in North America. Others have gotten it to work, but may have to change the Waze language to English? Not sure.

The commands reference is here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=22023

Ingress does not allow me to use mock locations. (and I also tried it, asr is still not taking commands, same reaction as in europe)
Wrong way to "travel" to the US...

I found the file to change the mood and I successfully changed it to cool,speedy,... by altering the files.
Does anybody know the mood name of the monster? I tried the following moods without result:
  • monster
  • Monster
  • secret
  • easter-egg
  • both of the-commands-you-say-when-asr-works-to-change-to-monster-mood
  • Gold (It was worth a shot ;))

I took a quick loog trough the files of waze and I can't find a complete list with the moods either.
Any help?

You may PM me if you don't want to say it here, out loud ;)

regards,
sir KitKat
You're looking in the wrong file... and I'm pretty sure you can't set the secret mood in that manner (as it can be overridden with other moods automatically)

hey, sirKitKat
I'm having the same problem as you.
how you managed to fix it?
I know the secret word but when I say it just stays "waiting".

My phone is a galaxy ace.

ok, looks like you have managed to activate ASR contrary (and correctly) to what is advised above.

The key that most seem to miss is that after you give a voice command and you then hear, "ok..." you then have to confirm the command. ie...

You: "<Your command here>"
Waze: "ok..." (this part is actually a question)
You: "Yes" or "Send" or "Go"

YMMV with the final confirm command.

After ASR is activated, you still need to enable it and set up which methods to activate it with before it is usable - Settings / Voice Commands menu.
I've never had an issue activating it.
If ##@asr says it's enabled, the menu should be there.

I'm not sure if this is only a problem in non-English speaking countries.

Hint.1 - "travel" to US to get asr working.
Hint.2 - you can get monster without asr by changing config file somewhere @ /data (rooted android only)

if it looks strange, it's my phone's fault

Activating asr via ##@asr is not working for all devices (e.g. on my OneX) - it will not turn green and listen after "how may I help?" question. I think this was the problem mentioned in this topic.
On the other hand "traveling" to US and activating asr "there" resulted to proper function.

This tread was not about finding the magic word or how to normally activate asr. As all those were known from the start.

Many do not know, that you can get monster without asr by altering one file deeper in /data folder. But you need root. And you need to know correct value, which has nothing common wit secret words for asr... it really works.

Edit the "preferences" file and change the line "TTS.Voices Enabled".
For example to enable English and Portuguese TTS voices the line should look like this:
TTS.Voices Enabled: local_nuance_8_mp3_Samantha_Female; local_nuance_8_mp3_Raquel_Female


All possible available TTS Voices are listed at "voices_was_tts.csv" (in the Android version).
The TTS Voices should be separated by the ";" char.
