    Uk users - voice entry

    How good is the voice input to dictate text messages?

    Does it seem to work or are there problems with accuracy because of the differences in accents between the UK and US?

    No difference; if it can understand USA English... it will understand UK English and yes it does work fairly good!!

    I like the idea of it, but about 50% of the time it will get a word wrong in the middle, and by the time you either edit the word or try again with the voice recog, it feels just as quick to have typed it in the first place. Not sure whether the inaccuracy is due to my being english or a mumbler though......

    Works very well in the UK and I have a regional (Northern Irish) accent.

    Best to ensure there is little or no background noise to get the best results though.

    Voice Dialler is good to0, you can use it for other tasks ie "Call Janice Mobile" or "Call Janice Work" or "Call Voice Mail" or "Open Diary" for example.
