Cognito is different than other voice recognition assistants in that it uses continuous speech recognition and doesn't require that you tap a microphone icon or make selections from a screen. You speak. It listens and does things for you even while your screen has dimmed or is in lock-screen.
Cognito constantly learns and improves its ability to recognize your voice the more you use it. It's the only truly eyes- and hands-free voice recognition assistant on Android, making it ideal for use on the road, in bright places where you can't see your screen, and wherever and whenever your hands are tied.
Speak, get information, and get things done faster than ever before. Say things like "Where's the nearest grocery store?", "What were yesterday's baseball scores?", "Text Ben: I'll be there in 5 minutes.", "What are the top movies?", "Call Fred", or "Remind me to pick up my laundry at 4 o'clock today." without ever having to press a button or stare at your phone.
With Cognito you can hands-free:
Place phone calls
Tweet on Twitter
Post on Facebook
Find nearby restaurants, grocery stores, and other places
Make appointments or create tasks
Get baseball, basketball and hockey scores
Movie show times and theaters
Local weather or in any city
Stock market quotes
Airline flight information
The location of your car or anything you designate
Get word definitions
Convert units of measure or currency
Do simple calculations
Get the time or date
Hear jokes or wise sayings
... and more features are being added all the time.
Cognito works best with natural voices such as those offered by IVONA and SVOX.
* The IVONA speech engine and voices are available at http://bit.ly/Hzk16U (note that the IVONA voices are in beta development, meaning although free, they do occasionally stutter, but their quality is outstanding).
* The SVOX speech engine and voices are available at http://bit.ly/IpEvk3 .
* The basic Android voice installer and voice data are also available for free at http://bit.ly/HPHMIv and require the installation of the SyntheticSpeech Data Installer and Synthetic Voice.
Currently only English is supported. It's best to install the speech engines and voices while Cognito is NOT running.
Cognito uses Google Licensing technology to help prevent fraudulent use and copying. Purchased copies may only be installed on a single Android device.
