Voice command Button

Postby drewex » Tue Mar 19, 2013 6:34 am

Can there be option to do voice commands with a button. Maybe make the report button hold down a second then voice command comes up. This will allow better usage of voice commands with single hand use. waving hand thing doesnt work well and clicking 3 fingers at the same time is impossible with one hand.

3-finger click is so easy I occasionally do it by mistake?!

the 3 button click doesnt work with one hand, while your holding the phone or if you have the phone sitting on the side.

I'd recommend getting a phone cradle then. Safer and more practical!

The waving works just fine for me. I use voice commands almost exclusively unless I want to add extra text or voice annotation.

Three finger tap does not work with most motorcycle gloves.

Three finger tap is not supported on all phones (it's not supported on the Hardware-not a Waze issue). I've found that the NEW double wave setting works a lot better than the single wave.

If you don't have a camera on both sides of the phone, I don't think waving is going to work........

iPhones have had a proximity sensor. If other phones "blank out" when you put it up to your head for a phone call, they probably have the same. Not just a camera.

I can confirm this. I used an antique iPhone 3GS up until a few weeks ago. No front camera. Coincidentally, I upgraded because the proximity sensor started giving me problems.
