Android users in Boston, have you ever tried to use the Google Voice Search to find Harvard Yard? If the application had trouble with the nuances of your accent, you will be happy to learn that Google Voice Search has been updated and starting in the U.S. the app will learn exactly how you pronounce certain words and your personal pitch, pace and all of the other factors that make you sound like no one else. If you agree to the personalized recognition, Google records certain words that you want them to recognize and a speech model is automatically built using these words.
Available for U.S. Android 2.2 users and higher, the update will start with English and spread out to other languages. Google Voice will improve accuracy rather slowly at first and improve over time. The updated Google Voice Search is now available for free from the Android Market or from the QR code at the source link.
