Do You Use Voice Commands For Your Gadgets?

Do You Use Voice Commands on Your Gadgets?

Confession: I rarely, if ever, use my iPhone's voice commands for anything. I've tried it a few times (mostly to see if it actually works), but I hardly use it regularly. In fact, I don't even like using voice commands when I'm calling anyone that asks me to "please enter or say your account number." I'd rather use the touch-tones any time, even if I'm alone and there's no chance anyone can hear me. Now that voice commands are available in everything from phones to cars, I'm curious if anyone is actually using these functions. To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if voice-activated kitchen appliances aren't far behind! How do you feel about tech that uses voice recognition?

I was really into voice commands when I first got my new laptop. It worked well in general, but after attempting to create typed documents using your voice can be a pain, especially when the word you said appears completely different on the screen! It's fun at first, but the novelty sure wears off fast.

I detest voice command all much as much as I detest voicemail. The only time I really used it was after installing the Google Mobile app. I had a few laughs using the voice search as it hardly ever got my request right.

They're not very reliable and I don't think anyone's actually so busy that they can't afford to press the three to six keys it takes to call someone.

No, but I like that I could if I wanted to.

Voice commands aren't very reliable.

I've used the Dragon Dictation App on my iPhone to dictate and send texts... but I need to give them the once-over before hitting the send button.
