    Resently, there is sth wrong with voice search. When I said "Dolphin", it comes out 'coffe'. Then "Wiki" is "We kiss". "Apple" is "sent mail". What is wrong? How should I pronounce it?

    :icon_eek::icon_eek: What?

    Actually, I think what Nerds is trying to say, is it depends on how you pronounce your words, including dialect and diction. Myself, I am from Alabama, and as such, I have a real pronounced "Southern Drawl" and Voice Recognition software takes a bit to "learn" my speech patterns. Thats the key though...you have to actually "teach" voice software to your speech patterns. Make sure you speak slowly, with clear concise words..it does take time is you have a "regional" speech mechanism such as my drawl...

    I've been searching for a thread that closely resembles my issue, this seems to be it. For the past 2 weeks, nothing I speak returns anything close to what I say. It worked fine for the first 4 months I had the phone. Most of the time, regardless of the app i'm in while trying the speech, I get 'No Matches Found, speak again'. English is the only language selected in settings. And I've tried updating voice search.
    If I say 'text Renae', it returns a list of 10 or so choices that are 2 or 3 letter suggestions. (BTW, I have no lisp)
