I'm not exactly sure what you are looking for but I will offer some suggestions.


Voice Search by Google: http://www.freewarelovers.com/android/app/voice-search

Voice Search can be used for more than just searching. It also integrates perfectly with many keyboards, the best of which is the Hacker's Keyboard (http://code.google.com/p/hackerskeyboard/ - Use Downloads Tab).


To enable an alternate keyboard: - Enable the input method in Settings - Language & Keyboard. Long press (press and hold) an open text box and select Input Method.



You may also be interested in Voice Text: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25986798/com....voicetext.apk



Vlingo is a virtual office assistant that offers many popular voice options:

http://www.1mobile.com/vlingo-virtua...ant-68847.html




Other Apps / Info you may be interested in:


Talk to Me Cloud: Real-time speech to speech translator for Android. Speech recognition in 7 languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese.

Speak a phrase in one of the 7 languages and it will speak it back in the language of choice (many languages supported). I was absolutely blown away as to how accurately the App recognized English. You can actually speak a sentence (where is the nearest train station etc.) and it will translate it back in voice and text. Amazing. You MUST download and install Voice Search first and have Wi-Fi access for this program to work. There is also a classic version which does not Wi-Fi access to use.

http://www.flaviuapps.com/ - Use the Downloads Tab.




iTranslate: http://www.amazon.com/Sonico-Mobile-...5689323&sr=1-6

or http://www.1mobile.com/itranslate-97480.html


The newer iTranslate version from 1Mobile can use the Extended Text to Speech App (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25986798/TTS...20Extended.apk).


You can also purchase different TTS language packs which sound more natural instead of computerized (e.g. SVOX) for use in other Apps.




Android PICO Installer Language Pack. This is a TTS English language pack. (Not an App. Works with other Apps like ezPDF reader. That's right, ezPDF reader will read PDFs. Does a pretty good job I might add).


Download directly using your Pocket Edge: http://areacellphone.com/2010/01/dow...age-installer/

thanks for being so accommodating with the thorough response and links. i LOVE the hackers keyboard's full layout on portrait! how do you integrate this with speech though? I'm guessing you need to add the button some how?

I really don't have a favorite but I lean more towards Voice Search because it is very accurate.


You can make Voice Search work with the Android keyboard by selecting Settings --> Language & Keyboard --> Android Keyboard --> Voice Input --> On Main Keyboard.


I prefer the Hacker's Keyboard because it integrates Voice Search better across multiple Apps versus the Android keyboard.



I have never tried Flex T9, but it has high reviews on Amazon and is reported as compatible with the Entourage Edge - http://www.amazon.com/Nuance-Communi...5810226&sr=1-9
