    Thank you. Very thorough analysis. I hope that they get this working soon. Blackberrys handle voice dialing very well, not sure why Motorola/Google can't do it? Norm

    Thank you for posting this :) I have the HTC Eris, and I think I'm going to return it on Monday because I can't take the gamble that when they update to Eclair (?) that even the 3rd party apps will work :angry: This phone doesn't have a "picture" button, unless they could use the scroll button on the face of the phone. <sigh>

    fuzzyb3,

    Unlike the Moto Droid, the HTC Droid Eris has dedicated call and end buttons. I expect that like other Android phones with those buttons, the long press on the call button may be mapped to alternate dialers. (As someone who seems to frequently find himself four clicks away from hanging up, I envy you those buttons.)

    DFX,
    Sorry to learn of your button envy LOL! I had one of the first iPhones, and got rid of it because the bluetooth didn't work on that either (and AT&T didn't work well in my area). From what I understand, they didn't fix it until the second generation phone came out, so I'm just leery about holding onto this Eris praying for a fix...If only the Eclair update would happen this weekend....

    If a Nexus One user out there would like to help us test VDHF, please contact us via either PM or the DFXmobile feedback email address.

    Please mention Nexus One in the title.

    Edit: Thank you to those that responded.

    • It appears that 2.1 neither included a BT-enabled voice dialer nor enabled BT "voice activation" capability in their stack. We know it is coming (see Nick's Dec 12 4:29 pm comment). As soon as it is released OTA we plan to release an update supporting the BT button for both the Droid and Nexus One (as well as any other phone running the version of 2.x with the fix).
    • The Nexus One runs VDHF well (and quickly), but for now you must start it with the app icon--the Nexus One has neither a camera button nor a send button. That unfortunately defeats VDHF's ability to run today without looking at or touching the screen.

    Thanks,
    DFXmobile

    I have an issue that I am sure others are experiencing (it happens on my droid and on my friend's droid). The first time you use VDHF after not using it for a while, there is a long wait time between where you say "Call John Doe" and when it asks for confirmation. During that wait time it continues to say "Listening." All subsequent attempts work perfectly. And NO, i do not change contact information or add new between every use!

    I've noticed the same thing too. I don't use it every day, and it does tend to have a longer lag time then using the built in interface, so frequently I just end up using the default voice search.

    I am very frustrated with the built in Voice Dialer and the Voice Dialer HF. It hardly ever recognizes the name

    Most "hardly recognizes" issues turn out to have a simple cause. Did you look through our troubleshooting guide or contact us? We generally send out emails with pointers upon install, and also send out troubleshooting recommendations and an offer for direct assistance if a user uninstalls.
