Thread: Smartphone personal assistants

    Smartphone personal assistants

    I'm looking to purchase a smartphone at the end of this month and will need to find one which can be used in many ways purely by voice. Obviously, Siri on the iPhone is a major player in this department but I know that many new phones with Android also contain a vocal personal assistant-type program. Anyone know the benefits or detriments to either?
    Frankly, I'm tired of sitting in this damn electric chair.

    Hi I've tried to use voice command software on my android phone and to be honest it was not terribly successfully at understanding my voice commands, and if I recall correctly it you still need to shake or tap the screen to wake the phone up, and being C3 I don't have enough arm function to do this. May be worth looking at a switch activated solution to control this phone.
