    I remember having this on the Hero.... Can anyone confirm that this is on the Moment ? And if not, is there a suitable alternative?

    Thanks,

    That would be correct no Google voice search, I can not recommend any alternative as I have never used this kind of feature even when I had the Hero.

    I beleive you have to download "Google Search By Voice" from the Market to enable it :) Unless you are talking about some different Voice search function?

    Wow. That is a bummer. That is such a useful app. Why wouldn't they include such a app?

    I'm really hoping when the update comes out that we get vlingo as an option to voice dial via Bluetooth and voice search Google. I had a Blackberry for a week and the only thing I loved about it was vlingo. Well, that and Brick Breaker! Nuance is some of the worst trash I've ever used.

    Ah, now after doing a bit more research, I understand that Google voice search is Google's own voice search tool and that it's supposed to work well along the lines of Vlingo rather than Nuance. Anyone who's used all 3 care to comment on their experiences between them?

    the google voice dialer and voice search. I can get the voice dialer to work on the Moment but not the search. When I use the button on the side of the phone a menu comes up and asks if I want to use nuiance or google voice dialing. Both work fine. The nuance is very good.

    mobile google page along with an app called WHERE. Not as good as the voice search but I would assume that is coming in an update.

    I had this on my Hero up until Friday, I used it mainly for Google search.

    Ok I might be going slightly mad but for some reason it's no longer on my phone(!)and I can't find it on The Marketplace.

    I've done all the usual searches, Google, Google Voice, Google Inc, Google Voice Search. But nothing.

    Can anyone confirm that I did have it on a UK Hero and can anybody please tell me how to get it back? I found it very useful.

    Cheers Al

    I paid for talk to me keyboard and apparently Nuance locks it out.
    Wasted my money.
    Not even sure how to get a refund

    Message says Google voice recognition is not installed on this phone.

    Yes it was for a different phone but I still think it'll work.

    And couldn't you afford a Hero ;)

    I followed the link in mez post

    I installed this using sync this morning on my Hero, it work perfectly, I do not see a reason why it won't work for you, it's got to be worth a try.

    I had problems with my Nuance voice recognition until iI realized I needed to train Nuance to recognize my voice. I just did so in the last minute or so, and tested it without a problem showing up..(My voice was not recognizable before like 80% of the time)...
