    Hey! I am new to the Droid world and was curious as to if there was a real competitive Voice Command app, similar to MS's? I came over from ATT using Win Mobile devices. While I disliked many things about WinMobile, I really liked the Voice Command. It wasnt perfect but I liked using it. I even thought it was great how it would read Text messages aloud to me through the speaker when I received them.

    Is there anything that can do that or more for Android phones yet? I know they have the basic Voice Calling thing but is there anything else? Maybe even something that will read text messages outloud when they arrive?

    you can long press on a message and select "read text" from the menu to read a text back to you out loud.

    as far as voice commands, have you tried using the voice search at all? with voice search or dial at all?

    I tried what you said, but I dont see any READ TEXT option. I just thought it was cool to have it read it out loud to me on arrival.

    I am still playing with the voice features. They arent bad. I just wish there was more to them is all.

    oh, download handscent sms .... thats what i'm using, that will read your texts aloud, but not on arrival, you have to manually select the text message, not sure if there is a setting somewhere that has that option though, there could be!

    edit. i just emailed dev and asked if it was possible to implement that as an option, we'll see what he says
