Vlingo
 
Anyone try this out yet?

Vlingo - Free Voice Control For BlackBerry | BerryReview

I installed it, but you need to use the PTT key or the camera key to activate it, and I use both of those features. That was poor forethought on their part.

I just installed it now. Sometimes things are too good to be true. We shall see.

Vlingo?
 
I just got an email from Pinstack.com telling me about a new voice command program for smartphones called Vlingo, vlingo. Has anyone seen this or tried it? If it is any better at voice dialing than the installed version on the 8310 it will be worth it unless it is some type of malware that will bugger up my phone.

When you dictate the e-mail, it doesn't capitalize.

There is a work-around for this. Let the app initially configure this way. In vlingo Options, set Voice Key Active to On vlingo Home, and save. Reconfigure your convenience key as it was previously. You can now launch vlingo from your BlackBerry home screen or via the 3rd-party launcher of your choice.

I installed but can't get past Step #4. I get a time-out error message.

michaelcannella 06-25-2008 01:23 PM

i got it running...it's kind of cool

Thon_D 06-25-2008 01:25 PM

OK, I feel bad about being two faced in my web life. I will go and self flagellate myself in a little while.

However, while I am off whipping myself, does anyone actually have any info on this program?

bb8310 06-25-2008 01:53 PM

dont work here either

cayzac 06-25-2008 01:56 PM

I just installed it but it won't run. Keeps giving me an error about accessing a secure API. Is anyone else running into this? Any fix?

bigolsparky 06-25-2008 01:59 PM

There isn't a voice recognition program that was written for an Alabamian. We don't even understand each other.

mattma43 06-25-2008 02:20 PM

For the accessing a secure API. error, in their FAQ it says to install it with DM.

Pflugerbill 06-25-2008 03:01 PM

How do you locate their FAQ? I couldn't find it.

BarracudaBob 06-25-2008 03:02 PM

I tried it out and initially it seemed pretty good. I was able to do web searches. However, they claim it can open applications so I tried saying "open camera" (I used the convenience key that had been on the camera). It did a web search on "open camera". Now it just keeps telling me that it couldn't understand me and that I need to speak louder or closer to the mic or some crap like that. I'm rebooting to see if it clears up. It has a lot of promise so I'm willing to give it another go. If it fails to understand me again, it's gone.
