Samsung Intensity: How to avoid the voice recognition prompt

The Samsung Intensity has many nice features. It comes equipped with voice recognition software, which many people like. However, for others it is merely annoying. If you keep your phone in your pocket or purse, you might hear a muffled voice saying "Please say a command" from time to time as the phone's voice recognition button is bumped.

Fortunately, you can disable this voice prompt (if you want to) with just a few simple steps:

1. Press the voice recognition button on the upper right hand side of the phone.
2. Press the right options button to go to the Settings.
3. Select Prompts (#5).
4. Select Mode (#1).
5. Select Tones Only (the last choice).
6. Hit OK to save the change.

Now, when you accidentally bump that button, you'll just hear a short single tone, rather than the voice prompt.

If you want to reduce the volume for the voice recognition (either for the voice prompt or for the tone) that can be done easily as well. Follow the steps above to get to the Prompts menu, and select Audio playback (choice #2). Highlight the choice for Earpiece, and hit OK to save your choice.

The voice recognition function will now use the earpiece to play any sounds, rather than the speakerphone, so whether you set it for a voice prompt or a tone, the sound will be much quieter and hopefully you won't even notice it.

You can also lock the phone when you're not using it, which will disable the voice recognition button so you don't have to worry about bumping it. To lock your phone, just hold down the zero (0) key for two seconds. You'll see a message on the screen that the phone is now locked.

what is the best voice recognition software for Windows 7


the voice recognition system built into windows 7 is quite good, however if you do not wish to use that, you might find Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 Premium (199$) extremely good, or if that's not in your budget, Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 Home ($99) is also well to do.

Other than that, there is also TalkingDesktop($89) that is also quite good.

how hadicaps are using their keyboard


I would use the ease of access features provided by windows as well as voice recognition software. Ease of use can tell you what the screen says and Windows 7 and Vista (premium at least) provide voice recognition software. It's not as good as the commercial program, but it works somewhat well,

Is there a way to disable the voice recognition button on my Samsung intensity??? Whenever I go to slide it, I hit the button, and my phone talks, even when i hav the volume on vibrate only.


I have the same problem with my Intensity every time I keep it in my pocket. Unfortunately, you can't disable the voice recognition function completely, but you can make it more managable.

You can get rid of the voice that says "Please say a command" when you hit the voice recognition button, and instead make it just a single tone by following these steps:

- Hit the voice recognition button on the side of the phone
- Press the right option button to go to the Settings
- Go to #5, Prompts
- Select Mode
- Select Tones Only (the last option)
- Hit OK

You can also reduce the volume by changing the output from the speakerphone to the ear piece, to make it quieter. Go to the Prompts menu like you did above, and select #2, Audio playback. Set it to "earpiece" and hit OK.

Now, when you accidentally hit that button, the phone will just emit a short tone that you probably won't even hear. Hope that helps!
