SoundAbout Voice Searches - (Bluetooth hands free)

Post by SoundAbout on Mon Aug 31, 2015 8:45 pm

There is an Activity icon that you can place on your home screen to do SoundAbout Voice Searches.  Within SoundAbout, you can configure what voice search app to use and what audio to use for the voice search.

To Configure SoundAbout Voice Search:

1] Open SoundAbout
2] Click on "Voice Search behavior"
3] Make sure "Use SoundAbout Voice Search" is checked
4] Click on "Choose Voice Search" and a dialog will show potential voice search apps and activities within those apps (click on app to expand list of activities).
5] Click on the Activity you want.  You can press CLEAR to clear out any setting chosen in the past.
   a) For Google Now, the app is "Google App" and the activity is "VoiceSearchActivity".
   b) For Cyberon, the app is "Cyberon Voice Commander" and the activity is "VoiceCommanderActivity"
6] When the "Media Audio" setting is on "Let app decide", it will try to connect to Bluetooth, if the phone is connected.  
You can press "Media Audio" and select the audio output for SoundAbout voice searches.
7] You can also change "Max wait to speak" to the number of seconds that you want to wait for the voice search to prompt you to speak.  After this many seconds, the audio will revert back to the normal audio output if no search is done.
8] You can also change "Wait to Process" to the number of seconds that you want to wait for the voice search app to process the information after you have verbally given your search request..  After this many seconds, the audio will revert back to the normal audio output if no search is done.
9] You can also change "Wait after results" to the number of seconds that you want to wait after the voice search app responds to your request.  After this many seconds, the audio will revert back to the normal audio output if no search is done.

10] Now you can use the "SoundAbout Voice Search" Shortcut to initiate a voice search, by going into the app list and dragging the "SoundAbout Voice Search" to your home screen. It is an icon of a green microphone. It will use the audio input/output from #6 (default is the hands-free microphone/speaker for Bluetooth)
