It doesn't matter how fast or slow, how much I try to pronunciate certain words like names of cities what gets returned is so not even funny it's stupid. This seriously needs corrected.

What phone model do you have?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Hi there! I want to ensure the Voice Recognition works properly for you! First, I want to make certain the device has the latest software. Please go to Menu> Settings> About Phone> System Updates for this clarification. Are you using a case or screen protector? If so, please remove and test the voice recognition, as this may be covering the mic. A hard reset (http://bit.ly/oOaRQt) may be necessary as a last option if the issue persists. Just be sure to have your contacts and calendar backed up to Google/Gmail, etc. Keep me posted.

Thank you,

Voice Recognition software can't produce accurate transcription if the speaker is non-american. It also can't produce accurate transcription for conference call, if two or more persons

For accurate and quality transcription, please use manual transcription services.
