Chapter 14. Controlling the Galaxy S II with Your Voice

image with no caption

YOU’LL SPEND A LOT of time talking into your Samsung Galaxy S II when you make phone calls, certainly. But you can do a lot more with your voice as well. Want to send a text messages, get directions to a city or street address, and visit a website? Rather than having your fingers do the walking, have your voice do the talking, and you can do all that and more.

You do all this using two apps built into the Galaxy S II. It’s simple and straightforward, as you’ll see in this chapter. There’s a related app that lets you search the Web using your voice, and you’ll learn all about that as well.

Two Ways to Control the Galaxy S II by Voice

YOU HAVE TWO WAYS to control the Galaxy S II with your voice—using Voice Search (whose official Android name is Voice Actions) and using Voice Talk. Voice Search is built right into the search capabilities of the phone, while Voice Talk runs as a separate app.
