Tip: Add A Phonetic Name To Contacts Voice Recognition Just Can't Get Right


Perhaps the most time-saving key on the Android keyboard is the microphone, but using it is more hassle than it’s worth when certain words just refuse to be recognized. More often than not, these words are contact names. Luckily, there is a way to trick your phone into recognizing even the most tongue-twisting of names. If you’re tired of your phone turning “Demonte Jones” into “Demon’s bones,” just teach it to recognize the latter as the former. Granted, this might be a problem when you’re texting a friend the location of a secret item in your favorite MMORPG.


The instructions are pretty straightforward:

  • Open up the People app and find your desired contact.
