I don't have a Waze directory.

Re: Voice Commands reference (NA only)

What about other languages (such as french)?
I live in Montreal, Quebec and most all street names are in french and the text-to-speach has a terrible time at trying to pronounce those french names in english. As I don't have any problem with either language, I switched the text and speech to french and it's much more understandable now!
However, when I try to give it a voice command, it doesn't seem to understand anything anymore. I tried both english and french words/phrases and nothing get recognized.

Voice Commands - Network not connected

Postby DamonZ28 » Thu Nov 09, 2017 6:53 pm

I've been an avid Waze user for years, but just tried using Voice Commands yesterday. No matter what I try, when I attempt to use voice commands I get an immediate error message that says "Network not connected." I get this error message, regardless if I'm connected to my home wireless network, or my USCC data network. I can type & search just fine, and I can route to anywhere I need to go, so I know I have a network connection. But for some reason, voice commands and voice search will not work. Any ideas? I've tried disconnecting bluetooth, but that doesn't seem to change anything.

Due to noisy cars, voice commands rarely work without the use of a headset or in-car BT integration.


I have my phone paired to a Motorola Roadster BT transceiver, so my voice should be picked up with that, not the phones microphone. Seems like a software bug.

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

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

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.

Re: Voice Commands reference (old) + New "OK WAZE"

I have to shut down Waze, turn off radio, go back into Waze and disable the feature of "ok Waze" and then all is normal. I tried to use it a number of times and the same thing happens. It did not matter whether I was using bluetooth or USB.

Any suggestions? Anyone else have this problem?

Thanks


I’m having a similar problem with my 2016 Skoda Fabia. Because I have set Waze to operate through the vehicle’s Bluetooth system, “Ok Waze” seems to disable everything else from working, as though it is keeping the mic free to be permanently listening for my voice input.

This isn’t how Siri works - so what’s wrong? I’ve disabled “Ok Waze” for the time being, because I want to be able to listen to my music and accept incoming phone calls; but having “Ok Waze” turned on isn’t allowing me to do this.
