Hal Voice Commands features several capabilities including voice recognition/commands, music player, document reader (eReader), voice synthesis, News, Weather, CallerID and safer driving (beta). It is designed to avoid looking at the phone screen and minimize distractions. This application is voice activated and able to interact with the user by talking. Hal provides several Siri-like features.

Voice command examples include:

Call Jenny
Call 9064567892
Dial 911
News about president Obama
What time is it ?
What is the date ?

Please remember that Android voice recognition and synthesis are still work in progress. There are many factors to consider. Don't expect flawless voice recognition and synthesis. Don't download otherwise. Using song numbers improves accuracy.

The media player includes the following features, among others:

- Voice activated search based on song or item number. You can also perform other voice activated searches. For instance, say:

search thriller
search song thriller
search artist Michael Bulton
search album party
playlist myplaylist

- Talking capabilities. The media player speaks and provides you with information about the current song or item, including song number and title.
- Playlist menu option: display all the playlists available. A specific playlist can be selected and played by clicking on it. A long click will direct the media player to speak and tell you the title of the playlist.
- Fast forward and backward searches. Searches can include all the songs or be limited to the scope of a playlist. You can combine the forward and backward buttons to skip to a specific song. This is in case you choose not to use the voice activated search feature.
- 4-button simple interface and tactile (haptic) feedback that, along with the voice recognition and talking capabilities, also avoids looking at the screen.

- The document reader helps you work and study by reading PDF, HTML and .txt documents. It can read HTML documents directly from the internet (web) which requires an internet connection. You can also transfer the document
(extension .pdf, .htm, .html or .txt) to the device (sd card).

This is a beta version. Your feedback and comments
are appreciated.

- The advanced version also features GPS/location tracking capabilities which allow you to send your current location to family and friends. Because the latest version requires additional permissions, you will need to download a separate application from the market:

Hal Virtual Assistant

Note: This version only reads from the external SD Card.
Requires Android 1.6+. Android 2.1 is recommended. The talking feature requires google voice search apk and data.

    All I could get it to do was to repeat what I said then add "sorry I did not understand".

    It's one thing to have a few glitches and something but this thing does not understand anything I say including the eBook reader and this one they are very frustrating and I am going to delete them now these are the worst applications of this type I've ever come across when you fix them please let me know and I will try again I'm so happy they were free it would have been a complete waste of money
