Android :: Speak Contacts Name Or Number When Get Call Or Text?
Apr 27, 2010
Is there an app/add-on for Android that will speak my contacts name or number when I get an incoming call or text? I absolutely LOVE that feature about my Dare and will miss it greatly. Helps me know if I need to get the phone out of my pocket for an important call or if it can go to voicemail. Is there a feature in Android that can speak my contacts to me...like "call from Dad's Cell" or "message from Robert" like my LG Dare?
I have a serious problem when making calls without a headset, with the phone in my hand. People I call are telling me that they hear a phone number being dialed loudly while I speak to them, as if I am making a call while speaking to them. Today it happened and the person said she had to shout to be heard over this loud noise-which I cant hear!! I must be touching some button or application with my hand or face, but what?
When I open Google Translate it asks me if I want to install the Text-to-Speak Extended Library. When I tap yes, it goes to the Market and says it can't find anything. When it pulls up the Market, it searches for some TTS file or something. Anyone else have this problem and/or know how to solve it?
I have tried a few but they are all useless to me. Does google make one? I mean, when I use the voice search it fully understands me but all the market stuff can never get anything I say right. I want to be able to speak text sms while I drive an not cause an accident.
I'm having problems saving contacts. I have a number in my call history that wont save to contacts, when I save the contact to google contacts it stays in the people list for a few minutes then a few minutes later it disappears.
When I text the number it fails, I double checked, the number is correct, I deleted his contact and noticed a capital N in front of his number. I manually typed his number to text and again it failed to send and again it had put a capital N in front of his number
So I have my Facebook account set to sync with my contact but I use Google voice all the time for text and phone. Is there a way to get the pictures that go with my contact to show up when they text or call my gvoice number?
All my pictures are from Facebook so if everything works right the pictures I see in gvoice should be the same as the profile pix in FB.
I have a few questions about how Chomp works on the Epic: If I download Chomp, will I still get notifications at the top notification pull down on the home page? Or are the only notifications given on the actual chomp icon? (I don't want to have two notifications.) I was also wondering if I would still be able to use the "speak to text" feature that the stock app has? Lastly, there is a set of permanent icons on the home screen (phone, contacts, messaging, apps). When I click messaging, would it go to chomp?
I would like to forward all calls to my number on to the new predefined number automatically. Is it possible to forward incoming call? Probably it is possible for Froyo at least. I found application called Easy Call Forwarding. But many people reckon it dosen't work actually. We can notice forwarded call by onCallForwardingIndicatorChanged() from PhoneStateListener but I have no idea how to set forwarding mode.
The only thing I miss about the Blackberry is being able to have each Contact have a different ringtone for each service.My husband had 2 different ringtones. One for calls, one for texts.Iand so on for everyone. All my contacts had 2 or 3 different ringtones for each of them depending on what was cominng through.
it is opening phone contacts and when i choose one contact i can get all detail of the contact but not getting the number type of numbers; more specific >> if the user have four numbers, i can get all number but not getting number type of these numbers i.e. HOME,WORK,MOBILE)
I have contacts on my Droid with phone numbers that the same contact in Gmail do not have. Some history:
I have a Droid 3. My Accounts include my main Gmail acct, a gmail acct I hardly ever use (no contacts issues there), a pop3 account and a Touchdown-Exchange account which I dont need because Im not connected to that Exchange server any longer. Some time ago, since I wasnt on the Exchange server any more, I deleted the Touchdown account. Then I realized some or most of my Google contacts had disappeared from the phone. Thinking that this would delete the same contacts from the Gmail servers when it synced, I immediately restored the Touchdown account, restoring the lost contacts to the phone. Are these 2 issues related?
I use google voice to send all my calls on my cliq xt but I was wondering if there is a way to have people call my google voice number and not have it count towards my minutes. Also is there a way to have the sms be integrated with the built in android sms app or have the voice app constantly be open?
The text to speech API in android is awesome.. Is there any way in which I can play this text to speech content to a call instead of the speaker? As in I call a number automatically and then play text to speech to the callee.This is not another opening to phone spam if you are wondering.. Working on an automated distress call system :D
Can anyone call the last number they dialed in less than 5 moves on Motorola Droid without having that contact set as a direct dial shortcut on their Home screen?This is after screen has timed out and phone shotcut is not already open. I currently have to>press power>swipe or use pattern>press phone>press call log> press phone icon next to name. If the answer is no, people really need to think twice when they say how the phone is so easy to use. If it can be done quicker, please show how.
I would like to retrieve the incoming call's phonenumber and do something with it.Could you please help me because I can't find any information about this.Where do i start and how do i get hold of the phone number?
I'm really new in Android programming, so I have a simple question getting a phone number from contacts in my application. The method I want to implement is that the user clicks a button in my app and will be forwarded to the contacts. In contacts user has to click on a phone number and this number should be returned to a textfield. Is there a simple way to do this instead to implement it by ContentResolver?
On my previous phone it had a "full lock" feature on it that when a text message or phone call came in it would show all stars on the screen and require my password before you could answer the call or view the text message does the hero have that option or is there an app I can download?
I tried the pattern lock thing it has but if a call comes through or a text message comes through it still allows you to answer and/or view the message without entering the lock pattern..
I am frustrated that when I search for contacts in my HTC Legends SMS app "messages", as I type it provides every matching contact including those without a mobile number, and for each match it shows me every single contact address I have, emails, landlines etc.Is there an SMS app that only provides contacts who have a mobile number in their contact details,and only shows me the mobile numbers for those contacts?
I tried so much tutorials, and read a lot here at SO When a button is clicked, the user can choose the mobile number of a contact. Actual I can get the name of the selected contact, but i can't find a way, to get/chose the mobile number.
Recently installed Talk To Me Cloud, the translation app. Is pretty cool to press a button, talk into it and get a translation. There seems to be a little speaker icon next to the translation results, and when I press it I would expect to hear it say the translated sentence back to me, but it doesn't. Nothing happens. Press slightly to the left on if on the text itself and I'm told it's copied the text to the clipboard, but pressing on the little speaker icon does nothing. I have text to speech installed on my phone, which works in other apps (well, it worked in Sportypal anyway), so anyone know if there is a way of making this work? Should it work?
