Nokia N8-00 - Use your voice to call a contact

With the Voice commands application you can use your voice to make calls or control your device.

Voice commands are not dependent on the speaker’s voice. Commands are automatically created by your device.

Note: Using voice tags may be difficult in a noisy environment or during an emergency, so you should not rely solely upon voice dialling in all circumstances.

When you use voice dialling, the loudspeaker is in use. Hold the device at a short distance away when you say the voice command.

  1. In the home screen, select and hold Call. If a compatible headset with the headset key is attached, press and hold the headset key.

  2. A short tone sounds, and Speak now is displayed. Say clearly the name that is saved for the contact.

  3. The device plays a synthesised voice command for the recognised contact in the selected device language, and displays the name and number. To cancel the voice dialling, select Quit.

Listen to a voice command for a contact

  1. Select a contact and Options > Voice tag details.

  2. Select a contact detail.

If several numbers are saved for a name, you can say also the name and the number type, such as mobile or telephone.
