Speak Up!!!

The pass few weeks I had been in silent for the reason that I was preparing to submit an application for ADC2 (besides the time i had for my sister's wedding). And now I'm breaking the silence and getting myself to Speak Up!!!

Speak Up!!! is an android application designed to test your English speaking skills, it has 3 levels (easy, medium and hard) to choose from, and over 100+ words to randomized. On each stage you will have N randomized words (you could change N on the preference menu) and you have to speak each words correctly. In the end it will calculate the correct and wrong words that you have spoken.

From the technology standpoint, the app uses the Speech-to-text function of the phone (abuses it, lol) and used the database to store the words that you need to say. It's designed to be simple and designed for non native English speakers though native English Speakers are fully welcome to try it out.

At the end, either we win or not, we hope to change the world, to make it a better place through technology and through the gifts that had been given to us. We sincerely hope that our application would help you all in any way possible.

And I would like to thank Gary Law for this wonderful designs and layout.

Thanks for the info, ill try to see how i could fix this but im kinda limited to the hardware coz i don't have htc hero and cant flash my g1 right now. Anyone know how to debug htc hero?

Is there something I can do to help you to find the problem? I rebooted my phone and the problem still exists

Does HTC hero have Voice Dialer application by default?

You could also help me by installing http://almondmendoza.com/2009/04/03/app-that-developers-need-when-developing-android-app-log-collector/ and trying out the app, then when the problem exist open the log collector and email it to me at almondmendoza in gmail account. Just note this log collector might have some info on your phone and i might be able to see it, i suggest you to edit the result before sending out an email. Thanks a lot for your help

No, I don't think so. Is there a Voice Dialer app on the G1 by default?
I installed http://www.cyrket.com/package/org.topixoft.top_voice_control but "Speak Up" still doesn't work

admin said...

yes Voice Dialer is a default app in G1 and my app needs the functionality of that app, i think this is the reason why its making those error messages. If that is the case then i cant do anything for htc hero, sorry for that. btw i really appreciate your time in helping me with testing the app. Thanks :) (need to go to sleep, its 2:30am)

Ok, but how about to enhance your application so it could use TopVoiceControl on the HTC Hero?
