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 to it. The voice recognition in the device adapts to the main user’s voice to recognize the voice commands better.

The voice tag for a contact is the name that is saved for the contact. To listen to the synthesized 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 dialing in all circumstances.

When you use voice dialing, 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 right selection key. If a compatible headset with the headset key is attached, press and hold the headset key to start voice dialing.

  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 synthesized voice tag for the recognized contact, and displays the name and number. If you do not want to call that contact, select another contact from the list of matches within 2.5 seconds, or, to cancel, select Quit.

If several numbers are saved for a name, the device selects the default number, if defined. Otherwise, the device selects the first available number in a contact card. You can also say the name and telephone number type, such as cellular or home.
