Your device supports enhanced voice commands. Enhanced voice commands are not dependent on the speaker’s voice, so you do not need to record voice tags in advance. The device creates a voice tag for the entries in the contacts and compares the spoken voice tag with it. The voice recognition in the device adapts to the main user’s voice to recognise the voice commands better.

The voice tag for a contact is the name that is saved for the contact. To listen to the synthesised voice tag, select a contact and Options > Voice tag details. Scroll to a contact detail, and select Options > Play voice tag.

Make a call with a voice tag

Note: Using voice tags may be difficult in a noisy environment or during an emergency, so you should not rely solely upon voice dialling in all circumstances.

When you use voice dialling, the loudspeaker is in use. Hold the device at a short distance away when you say the voice tag.

  1. To start voice dialling, in the home screen, press and hold the call key. If a compatible headset with the headset key is attached, press and hold the headset key to start voice dialling.

  2. A short tone sounds, and Speak now is displayed. Say clearly the name that is saved for the contact.

  3. The device plays a synthesised voice tag for the recognised contact in the selected device language, and displays the name and number. To cancel the voice dialling, select Quit.

If several numbers are saved for a name, you can say also the name and the number type, such as mobile or telephone.
