I have never been able to get these to work. Is there a keyword you have to say to get waze to listen to you when an alert has appeared? Waving does not work until the alert has been dismissed manually, and then the voice commands do not refer to the previous alert.

I have to say I've never tried to use those myself so I don't even know if they work for me, I should give it a try someday ;)

I am not aware of any keyword, there are different activation methods however, maybe something from this link can help you:

I just saw that you can report things in the opposite lane - is that also a voice command?

Why reporting language depends on country where you are driving? I have Russian Android interface, as also Waze, but Waze will request German Commands in Germany... Thanks God I can speak German, but it will not happen with all languages. Could it hold on what is set in Waze? Or at least as Phone language???

That would truly be unfortunate and would make the Voice Commands unusable for me since I (and tons of others I wager) am always on BT...

it would be cool if you could record your own voice for preloaded commands, because it doesn't recognize my voice for most of them. ( probably because of my accent :oops: 8-) :evil: )

Same with me, Mike. Siri works fine, even using speech to text in messaging. Waze voice command used to work for me many versions ago. Now it only works when I'm sitting in my house. Doesn't do me any good there. I have use a Composite AV cable and never have used BlueTooth. I've submitted a bug report for my issue.

What rig are you using in the car?

I don't think Siri supports third-party apps.

Do you use Bluetooth in your car? There has been a bug for the last few months where Waze voice commands does not work over a Bluetooth connection. The voice reporting has never worked particularly well, but voice search works quite well in my experience (provided that you are not using Bluetooth).
