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.

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.

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

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.

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)

I'm located in Europe but like I said, I activated asr and the function is waiting for my commands.
(ASR can be activated by navigating to "##@asr" or by editing the preferences file and set the preference ASR.Feature enabled: yes)

From what I understand, is the malfunction of ASR related to the ROM on my phone but I don't want to load an other ROM just to try it. Alternative, I'm looking for a way to run the asr actions like they are defined in the ars_cmd file.
example commands: asr_report_police; asr_report_accident; ...

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

ASR Voice controll.

Postby sirKitKat » Sat Dec 22, 2012 11:34 pm

Hi,

On my quest to activate the Easter Egg in waze (The purple monster mood) I got stuck on the waze voice input.

Purple Monster
Before you post any links to other threads about unlocking the purple monster, I already know how to unlock the monster, I went trough the forum and trough the files on my phone, I know all the secret voice commands to activate it (yes, there is more than one).

Problem with ASR
Except, in my case, when I activate the voice command, Waze asks "How can I help" but after that, it keeps on waiting. I said lots of things but it seems that Waze doesn't record from the microphone.
I tried almost every command waze should understand but I don't get any response from Waze

2 things I want to figure out:
  • Is there something I can do to make asr work on my phone?
  • Is it possible to run the (voice) commands or actions without asr?

My phone:
Samsung Galaxy ACE (GT-S5830)
Android 2.3.7
Base version: S5830DXKPB
ROM: CyanogenMod-7.2.0-cooper
Waze version: 3.5.1.4
