Does anyone know how to remove the VoiceTalk (vlingo) on double home-press ?

I'd like to make it available for QuickDesk.

Or even better, if possible, use it as a long-press search button to use GO SMS "new message" functionnality.

Hi there,

I have put together an app to redirect the VOICE_COMMAND action that is being used by VoiceTalk, are redirect it to the long press search action. This can then be used by any app that supports it like Go SMS, or you can wire it up to anything else using something like Tasker.

This is pretty much my first attempt at android development, so no guarantees but it seems to work well for me.

You will get two choose action dialogues, the first is between VoiceTalk and my app, and the second is the result you want (Go SMS or the like). If you set defaults for both, then it should appear seamless after that.

Let me know if you have any issues, and I am happy to have a look and fix if required.

Thanks

Alex

Looks like I can only upload zips and not apks here, so I have uploaded the zip and here is a link to the apk that you could use direct on the phone:

Fantastic idea, but I can't get it to work. It installs fine, but no dialog appears, no way to change any settings, it's like it is not installed.. I'm running ke7.. Any suggestions?
I'd love to run quickest instead of the voice control when double clicking.

Regards -e

I flashed KE7 today, but haven't had chance to test it. Will install it later and see If something has changed in KE7.

[edit]
Looks like Samsung have changed something around the way this works in KE7, will see if I can fix it.

If you can fix this for KE7, does this mean that I could change the behaviour of the button on my bluetooth headset to start Cyberon Voice Commander (as opposed to starting the VLingo Voice Command supplied by Samsung). Voice Dialing does not work with VLingo, but it does with Cyberon. Now I need to figure out how to start it with my headset.
I am new to Android and Linux, but this is exactly what I had to do to get my Samsung Omnia (Windows Mobile) to work. My phone is rooted BTW.
Thanks.

Awesome!!! Thank you so much! It worked like a charm on my KE2 firmware! I had to use the Wave launcher to get to Quickdesk which worked ok but felt kinda clumsy...

Cool, I'm glad it was of use to you. Investigating this, it looks like Samsung have mangled the system server to force this intent to the vlingo app in KE7. Doesn't look fixable without a custom rom :D

Thanks for looking into this. FYI I have found that if I <freeze> VLingo with TitaniumBackup, and then install Cyberon VoiceCommander, then it works: VoiceCommander starts when I press the headset button. So it looks like VoiceCommander hooks in correctly when VLingo is not there, but is unable to override the VLingo setting if Vlingo is active.
This leads me to believe that there is a bluetooth setting somewhere that can be changed, but is locked by VLingo when it is active.
I am new to Android, but in the Windows Mobile world this would be in a registry key somewhere...

Thanks, kind of works on my KE2
Before installing app I got no question whatsoever and nothing started (I had frozen vlingo using titanium backup), Now I get the option to select between widget locker and voice search.
is there any way to get more applications to choose from or is it bound to what actions they responds to?

@c0m47053:

Hey man, I love the app, works like a charm for me but then I think it's because I haven't updated to the firmware which has upset everyone else. One question though - is it possible to have it redirect to something entirely different? I'm specifically thinking of loading the camera. If you're tired of this project I'd be happy to have a whack at editing it myself if you wanted? Totally new to Android but I've been programming in Java for years now :)

@eck_strider

I used Tasker to redirect search long press to anything else, it costs £3.99 on the market but is pretty awesome in general.

If you want to poke around at it, I uploaded it to GitHub at https://github.com/c...3/VoiceRedirect

Glad it was some use for you

@bryant_16
This only seems to work on the older KE2 firmware and below. I am not sure if tasker responds to search long press either, but Tasker above should be able to utilize it if you are running an older firmware.

Great little app. One thing that bugged me is that you get the activity showing for a split second. It's kinda ugly. So i got your code from git hub and added the line

android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar"

to both your activities in the manifest. Presto, the activity doesn't come up at all. It looks much nicer. You might want to incorporate that in your git code and put a new version in this thread :)

Thanks, I had already purchased tasker, so no extra cost for me!
Thanks for the code, I added android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar" as suggested and put it on my device and it works as promised... :-)
