Thanks vince1612. I was finally able to get someone at Samsung to realize that I had some settings on my phone incorrect (after over 30 minutes of talking with them). At first they were blaming the app. It is working much better now. Ill post how I did it after a few more days making sure it works. I appreciate your patience with me and your help!

I'm in the land down under, and having tried multiple voice inflections and my best attempt at an American accent, I have had almost zero success with getting voice recognition to pick up on "pot hole".
I've tried pot hole, POT HOLE, po-thole, pottle, pot-hell, and it just does not want to get it.
I've given up trying to report potholes unless I'm stationary and I can press through the prompts on the screen.

I've seen references to reporting incidents in the opposing traffic lanes but have not found the commands in the wiki or in this forum. Am I mistaken? Is there a way to report issues for people traveling in the opposite direction?

Invoking hands-free voice commands: The wave doesn't work nor does tapping the screen on my iPhone SE--maybe those were for previous Waze versions. But what does work is swiping from the left side of the screen to the right, which brings up the screen with past searches, and "My Waze." Near the top of the page is a search bar with a red microphone on the right. Tap on the microphone, and it listens for reports or verbal commands.

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

You're not the only one. My experience usually goes like this:

Me: Three finger tap. wait 5 seconds for the microphone to turn green
Waze: How can I help?
Me: Vehicle stopped on shoulder
Waze: One more time?
Me: Vechicle stopped on shoulder!
Waze: Couldn't hear you. Try again.
Me: VEHICLE STOPPED ON SHOULDER, YOU @#$%* COW!!!
Waze: Cancelled

By this time, of course, I'm two miles down the road and the issue is moot. This is just an example; I'm quite aware that some folks don't care for the vehicle stopped notification, but here in Maine where roads are narrow and winding, I find them very useful.

We need new and better voice commands with full phone and text options, possibly Google now integration! Across all platforms

We need Voice activation to like "OK Waze, report, confirm report. Report not there" and more
