After Siri fails to understand you, scroll up whilst in the Siri screen, find your dictate request (e.g "Open Way"), tap on it and edit the text to what you actually said. Siri will then try to learn your accent.

Thank you for this tip!
Siri never seems to recognize my voice, but using your "open sounds like waze" method works for me everytime. :)

I use "speak to it" assistant on android (i think there is an Iphone version too)
and when I say

If you're jailbroken there is an app in Cydia called SiriLove. It recognizes Waze as default GPS.
So you can open Waze directly, or you can ask for directions and Siri will open Waze by default.

All you have to say is:

"Open sounds like waze"

Thanks for posting this here. Your shorter version, "launch like waze" works perfect for me.


Yes, there are way fewer syllables. :D
