I use the voice recognition on my Android for Google searches but it seems to have trouble with my accent. Some of the results to come back are a little disturbing LOL

I haven’t tried any of the voice recognition programmes, but apparently they often have problems with a Scottish accent. I don’t know if mine is strong enough to be a problem, though. I really have to try one out!

I had a Glaswegian gentleman in the hotel a while back. Totally inpenetrable accent. Took a couple tries for me to understand him, especially given my hearing’s not what it might be.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

As further evidence of my superior intelligence I offer this as proof. Today I was given a temporary password for an online service (I’ve since changed the password). I was reading back the individual letters of this temporary password and I said the following:

“K for Kat”.

My intelligence knows no bounds.

Considering I was waiting on my phone for up to 20 minutes to talk to somebody at a government department I could understandibly be a bit “warped”. Fortunately the guy I spoke to was helpful.
