Sometimes the voice text feature on my phone suggests that I may have had a stroke

    Because there was no way in hell what I just said was “Blazing duckies on the lasagna door”...

    And I don’t have dead lips or a swollen tongue so maybe it is my brain..?

    I'd be saving those lyrics for a rock opera! I can just see Ken Russell's adaptation in my mind... whoa... I didn't need to see THAT (cough)... :confused:

    My brother will 'voice command' his phone to text me from time to time. All I can say is I try not to get offended and just wait until he takes the time to look at what was texted and correct it.

    I was asked to look into programming voice and handwriting recognition a long time ago (over 10 years now) and decided that was not something I ever want to get into.

    The differences in accents, slang, languages, etc... I just don't see any way to make it work. Those things aren't static and are still changing. Sure, the BIG players (Apple, Google) have something that almost works for some people, but no way you could trust it to any critical applications.

    Even photo copiers have some amount of image recognition/correction in them. I've had them print pages that were completely wrong because they scanned and then auto corrected mathematical symbols and equations into something unintelligible.

    I'm also very skeptical of anything beyond trivial "Artificial Intelligence". By trivial I mean it can only make decisions on things that are already programmable by a person. AI is simply automation of repeatable tasks.

    I frequently dictate medical terminology. “Anisocoria” becomes “an ass sequoia.”

    It CAN be done. I use Google Search on my phone and the voice function is nearly flawless. But I am not Barry Kripke...

    I have to remind my customers that I have diction and I am articulate. I tell them before hand so the text misconceptions are understood.

    The Beatles called and asked if they can use that line in a tune for their upcoming Revolver II rekkid.

    iPhones do not recognize Texan or Southern accents...nor do they recognize my wife’s Tex-Mex accent.

    I've considered getting a smart phone just for this feature, thinking that my music lyrics ideas would get better.

    Mike, it's not your brain, it's them big ol' size fifteen (15) feet of yours. Them things is so big, sometimes when you get talking on the phone, and shuffling them around they get to sucking the blood all the way down there, and it just pulls the juice out of the other end of you.

    Our digital camera always asks if someone blinked. My family is asian. Japanese camera technology is sooo racist.

    I'm pretty sure that's surplus WWII invasion code.

    I have not done voice texting yet, but I have a client who does long voice texts and they always get broken up into smaller messages and delivered out of order. Those are sometimes pretty funny in a Mad Libs kind of way.

    I did once type “Ted Nugent” and my phone corrected it to “Ted Nigeria.”

    Even braniacs at Cal-Tech have issues with iPhones; Apple needs a voice-recognition setting called "Fudd:"

    I think maybe your phone has had the stroke?

    Attorneys I used to work with used a program that they loved. I had to dictate letters into a phone system back in the 80's that the transcriptionists would listen to but I had write out anything that required much thought.

    I'm thinking Boomhauer is way smarter than your average bear.

    I have Cortana disabled on my Windows cell phone, yet periodically, it says "Listening..." , then , "Cannot connect to the server". When it does that, I pull out the battery and restart it.
