Client Suggestion: Voice Recognition
I was driving from Las Vegas, NV to Fullerton, CA this past weekend. During the trip, I had a few hours to think of what client upgrades could be implemented into WAZE. Specifically, as the title of this thread suggests, I thought about Voice Recognition. This came about as I sent a report, but was unable to type a comment, thanks to texting and driving dangers.
Here is what I was thinking:
Voice Recognition would always be active while WAZE is active. Instead of pushing a button to activate Waze, what if a keyword was programmed to start the functionality. In this Example, the keyword is “WAZE.” Whenever the driver says this keyword, WAZE listens for the next word that is associated with the program. In the situation below, this is what it would be like to report a Police Trap.
In the simplest form:
“WAZE, Report, Police, Send.”
“WAZE, Report, Police, Comment, Hiding behind the tree, Send.”
Of course, after Report, this could be done with any of the report descriptions in the list. Consider also "Drive To" could be implemented into the system.
Voice reporting with Google Assistant is already available in Waze!
